From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ja-JP; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030922

Description of problem:
A customer has a problem that is "A repetitive typing" with
single key stroke.
Customer told me this occurs every 10-20 seconds.


- Type cat in text editor (such as vi or emacs)

- shows like as below.

# cccccccaaaaaaattttttt

This symptom happens only using X-windows and In Multi-user mode
(init 3), typing is fine.
And also this only happens SMP/Enterprise kernel, not UP kernel.
So we think this is XFree86 problem.

Customer is using ES3.0 and XFree /kernel packages are all updated.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ES3 and updated
2. opened text editor such as vi
3. typed single key whatever like "hoge"

Actual Results:  I could type normally.

- typed "hoge"
- showed "hoge"

Expected Results:  - showed like "hhhhhhooooogggggggeeeee"
