Just dl'd the blackbar 6.1.3 or whatever it is. I wiped data /cache three times and i'm not having an issue with the keyboard at all. I did notice that the phone seems to run a little snappier too, and there is more room on the phone's ROM. 70something mb rather than under 30mb. So I guess the rule of thumb is that every few ROM installs it's a good idea to data wipe.
