@PoliceQuest:
Tricky - I've no idea what your adapter is but from your photos it looks like the the tracks aren't close to the edge of the PCB...
...If it's a case of 'I'm buying an Indivision & I'll just have to buy a Lyra too' you have nothing to loose. I'd suggest the following:
Out with the keyboard adapter, in with the Indivision, and try to put the keyboard adapter back in...
...Have a good look @ where the PCB's overlap, if possible try to mark it out with a magic marker...
...back out with the keyboard adapter & fingers crossed none of your drawing overlaps traces on the adapter.
Now for the fun bit:
Cut the excess off! I'd suggest using a Dremmel; massaging the fit with a grinding bit, or removing big bits with a thin cutting wheel.
If one or two traces will be cut in the above process it may still be doable - Follow the traces for their connections & after the butchering session repair by soldering 'patch-wires' for the bits that are now missing.
Brave pills may be required...
...works? Good. Dead? You've lost nothing IMO.

@TC:
Nice piccies there.
Out of curiosity what HighGFX driver version are you using?
How warn is your Indivision getting?
Thanks.
