Insertion point moves randomly when typing

When typing (word, Excel or web forms), the insertion point sometimes moves randomly around the page. This then puts my most recent text at some other strange point in the document.

I’m using XP on a laptop. It’s not a case of accidentally brushing the touch pad, as this would move the mouse pointer but not the insertion point…

Any ideas?

It's an SP2 issue, according to Microsoft - I had a long email conversation with one of their techs when I first ran into this on my old PC. It happens on my new PC, too. Maybe one day they'll bestir themselves to fix it.
