I thought of that also, but I found a little plastic box that covers
the keys, and I haven't lost insert mode yet.
It is most likely that the Backspace is a key that is also used when
editting midstring, and that the Insert key /is/ being hit.
I think a raised L shaped divider between the Backspace key and the
F12 - Insert key area might be worth a try. The advantage being that
the firm shoulder can be felt for position feedback, without
activating any keys.

Thanks, Ron M.
