Description Rich Megginson 2015-08-13 16:21:26 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm running RHEL7.2 (nightly candidate) in a VM and running the latest screen available for RHEL7.2.  At some point after using the Caps Lock key, screen loses track of the shift state, or perhaps the caps lock key is triggered randomly?  Because my TYPE appEARs liKE tHIs which maKEs tYPING PAsswordS almost impossible, among other annoyances.

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

How reproducible:
randomly after using Caps Lock at least once

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the keyboard a lot - run vi, use Ctrl-A Esc copy mode to copy/paste text many times
2. Use the Caps Lock key a few times
3. Keep typing

At some point you will bEGIN to SEE that THE shift key IS acTIVATED ranDOMly

Actual results:

Expected results:
