When trying out sphereFACE on my Thinkpad X220, I found that when pressing any of the media keys (sound output mute, sound output volume up, sound output volume down, sound input mute), the view pans slightly, in a direction that appears to differ between runs.
Also, upon repeated pressing of the TrackPoint middle button, I'm no longer able to pan around at all, save for the camera following the movement of the ship. This can sometimes be fixed by pressing the button once more, or by going into the menu and back out.
You can see videos that I've captured on the ThinkPad while playing the game, one of which with a webcam showing the pressing of the middle button. I've also provided associated logs of the game, which are unfortunately not from the same runs as shown in the videos, but created at a later time instead.
