Description of problem:
When I add an keyboard shortcut to the Fedora->Preferences->Keyboard
Shortcuts applet, the underlying (simply alt+ or ctrl+) key gets
changed. Basically, I lose the ability to type the letter "q" if I use

xev shows that the underlying keycode has been changed:

KeyPress event, serial 25, synthetic NO, window 0x3200001,
    root 0x48, subw 0x0, time 92058680, (142,87), root:(147,131),
    state 0x10, keycode 24 (keysym 0x1008ff14, XF86AudioPlay),
same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XFilterEvent returns: False

... and I have to use xmodmap to restore the key mapping.

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnome-keybinding-properties.
2. Change the accelerator for "Play" to Ctrl-q.
3. Try to type the letter q in another open window.

Actual Results:  Nothing appears to occur when you press q. All the
other keys on the keyboard function.

Expected Results:  I expect to see the letter q!

Hi Sam,

Are you still seeing this in FC4 or rawhide?

Comment 2 Sam Sgro 2005-09-09 19:54:58 UTC
Having returned to FC4 from Debian unstable, I'm unable to replicate the bug.
