Pressing two adjacent keys at the same time fails

If I hit "f" and "g" at the text console at the same time, I see "fg" (or "gf") in the shell. If I hit "r" and "t" together, or "y" and "u", I instead see one of the characters, or most often neither of them. The keyboard allows some sets of two adjacent keys to be pressed together, but not others.
This exhibited itself in Tamtam, where I can't play chords using some combinations of keys, even though the keys play notes individually -- nothing is played with "rt" or "yu", but both notes are played together with other combinations.
This is on a machine labeled "test kbd". I think it's a B3 keyboard sample.
