Key fob failure causing stalling?

So over the past week, I've posted a couple other questions related to faulty ignition switches.... I've been dragging my feet on the repair, but I was sure the issue was a bad ignition switch because 1) It's apparently a common failure and 2) If I jiggled the fob it would cause truck to stall or momentarily shut off power to the instrument panel.

Well today, just for giggles I swapped to my spare key which is basically new. The key fits much tighter in the ignition, and no matter how much I jiggle or fiddle with it, the truck doesn't act up... Suffice to say I'm happy that it looks like the problem is the fob and not the ignition switch, but I wanted to see if anyone else has run into this?
