Description Pavel Rosenboim 2006-04-25 05:07:37 EDT
Description of problem:
I set a "Super" (windows logo) key, to be a movement key in Gnome. Sometimes at
logon this preference is lost and "Super" key does not act as movement key.
Also, when it happens, I'm able to set Alt or Ctrl as movement key, but not
"Super" key. I need to set it again, logoff and kill the X server to make
"Super" key to function again.

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

A similar problem affects me, although I can usually get the super key to move
windows again by opening Keyboard Preferences, selecting a different keyboard in
the Keyboard model selector under Layouts, and then setting the keyboard back to
be a generic 105-key.

When that doesn't work, I run xkeycaps, pick the appropriate keyboard, and then
tell it to restore the default map.

I'd love to have this fixed.

Movement key in FC6 x86_64 does the same thing as antecedently mentioned. 
Alt+left mouse click works, despite 'super' or 'control' ket option being set.

Super key works fine for window moving here. 
Please use xev to make sure that the key you are pressing actually generates
the keysym you expect.

We no longer support Fedora Core 5 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
