I'm actually very happy someone else ran into this too! I have a Lenovo T490
(azerty edition, yeah I known ...)
I found it incredible hard to describe, but i have the exact same problem.
I categorized it as "random system freezes", but now that you say its
related to keyboard interaction it makes sense when I observe the lock.

System locks up when it happens and the fan ramps up AFTER the dead lock.
I'm pretty sure the getting "hot" symptom is caused by the deadlock and not
a symptom of the deadlock.

I am also using a non default keyboard layout, as described in the bug
I'll probably try the patch in the coming weekend to see if it helps.
