Description of problem: At the login screen, when entering password three characters are generated for every one I type. This just started this morning (ran updates last night). I cannot login now. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Not sure what component is responsible for this part of GNOME. How reproducible: Very Steps to Reproduce: 1. Boot computer. 2. Click on name at the login prompt of GNOME. 3. Enter password. Actual results: When entering password, three dots show up for every character I enter. GNOME will not log me in. Expected results: GNOME would log me in based on a correct password. Additional info: Sorry, I don't know what package the login screen comes from. Please reassign it to the proper package if this isn't it. Thanks!

Created attachment 321092 [details] List of packages update on Oct 20 Not sure if this helps but this is a list of packages that were updated the day before the problem occurred.

Okay, this has to be the weirdest problem I've ever encountered. If I am at the GNOME login screen and go to a TTY and then jump back I can successfully enter a single character and it will show up with a single dot. All subsequent entries now show up as two dots. All I have to do is jump into a TTY and then back again and I can get the one character, again. Also, not sure this is related but TTY1 is the GUI vice TTY7(?).

> Also, not sure this is related but TTY1 is the GUI vice TTY7(?). Yes, this has been changed. Regarding your other problem, do you have an xorg.conf that mentions input devices ? It sounds like you are having evdev problems.
