This problem was returning intermittently.  I am now moving on to a more
recent release of Ubuntu so I no longer have am rebooting this
particular OS version.

  frozen login window' unable to login; must reboot' cursor moves no
  mouse clicks

Status in lightdm package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Denial o9f Service caused by holding a key that repeats for a long
  time.  eg.  cat takes nap on keyboard, cloting piled on keyboard

  Before submitting bug report I checked online and saw many other
  reports goin back about 15 months.  I saw no mention of  updates or
  how to reproduce.  In my case the cursor continues to move around, but
  unable to use cursor to reboot.  I can only use power off as none of
  they keys are working.

  Good thing the power button results are acceptable. and most
  applications fully recover.
