Description Mark McLoughlin 2005-05-23 04:42:48 EDT
Several bugs with Vino's keyboard handling code:

bug #134451:

  Over-eager repeat rate. Whenever you type something which causes a large
  part of the screen to change (e.g. adding a newline in the middle of a 
  screenfull of text), you'd often either get a lot of extra newlines or
  Vino would go into an infinite loop adding newlines.

bug #140515:

  Shift key not working with some keys. Made it impossible to enter '|' or
  "£" with some very common keyboard layouts.

bug #142974

   Caps Lock wouldn't work at all.

Attaching the fixes.

Comment 17 RHEL Product and Program Management 2006-09-05 15:52:43 EDT
The component this request has been filed against is not planned for inclusion
in the next update. The decision is based on weighting the priority and number
of requests for a component as well as the impact on the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux user-base: other components are considered having higher priority and the
number of changes we intend to include in update cycles is limited.
Comment 18 RHEL Product and Program Management 2006-09-05 16:04:30 EDT
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request.  You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request. 
Comment 19 Ludek Smid 2008-04-02 09:45:00 EDT
Since this component got included in the next update, reopening this bug.
Comment 20 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-04-02 09:58:51 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
Comment 22 Cameron Meadors 2008-06-13 11:02:59 EDT
I cannot reproduce 134451 and 140515 with the old packages, but I could
reproduce 142974.

I would like to note that this will make it impossible to put this bug into
VERIFIED since that requires reproduction on old packages and verifying that the
bug is fixed on the new packages.  Please stick to one issue per bug.
Comment 23 Cameron Meadors 2008-06-13 11:23:15 EDT
No change in new packages.  142974 is still broken.
Comment 25 Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2008-06-18 17:20:02 EDT
I cannot reproduce these bugs either:

   bug #134451
   bug #140515

For 140515, note that it says with "some" keys, so it's possible some unusual
keyboard layout would be required. We'd have to ask Mark about that.

Comment 26 Cameron Meadors 2008-06-23 16:39:33 EDT
142974 was reproduced and verified as fixed.  I am leaving this in ON_QA because
I can not reproduce the other two bugs.
