The right arrow key on my MacBook Pro (OS X 10.6.7) no longer moves the cursor right but increases brightness in finder and seemingly all other applications.

Option (Alt) + right arrow opens system preferences on the Displays page

I've restored defaults on Keyboard shortcuts but that hasn't solved it. I've had to ignore it for a while (a week or so) and just get on with stuff and so can't recall whether it started happening after an update or something...

Any clues would be extremely welcome.
