Description Steve Meyers 2006-05-04 17:02:46 EDT
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible: fairly random

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in graphically (I'm using KDE)
2. Use a key combination including the Win key (e.g. Win+L)
3. If it doesn't reproduce, log out and go to step 1 until it does
Actual results:


Expected results:


Additional info:

In the attached xev log, I did the following (and separated each out with extra
white space):

 - 2
 - Win (left)
 - Win+2
 - Alt
 - Alt+2

As you can see, the Win key is not changing the modifier state -- it's still
0x10.  It should be 0x50.  The Alt key works correctly, changing the state to 0x18.

Please report this issue to X.Org developers by filing a bug report in
the X.Org bugzilla located at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg"

Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the
centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that
become available for consideration in future updates.

Setting status to "NEEDINFO_REPORTER", awaiting X.Org bug URL
for tracking.

External Bugzilla reference was added some time ago...
Comment 5 James Ralston 2007-01-04 18:53:47 EST
Steve, as the reporter, you are (apparently) the only one who can update the bug
status from NEEDINFO to ASSIGNED...
Comment 6 Steve Meyers 2007-01-04 19:01:56 EST
I don't see a way to do that, but perhaps checking the "I am providing the
requested information for this bug" will help. :)
Comment 7 Matěj Cepl 2007-01-08 16:27:28 EST
Well, the checking of the checkbox would certainly help, but I can do something
as well.

Since the upstream reference was added, marking closed:upstream.
