Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 202922
rawinput.typeText() interval should be longer and/or configurable.

Description of problem:
In RHEL4-U3 system, used the rawinput/typeText() in the script. Can't type one
character at a time, but whole string at a time. It seemed no difference with
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run script test-input.py. Using text().
2.run script test-typeText.py. Using typeText().
3.diff -Nur test-input.py test-typeText.py > diff.txt
4.view diff.txtas below:

1 and 2 running results were same.
1 script type whole string at a time.
2 script type one character at a time.
tree.Node.typeText(string) currently just does:
self.text += string
This is different in CVS and will be in the next release.
rawinput.typeText(string) does in fact type each character one by one, but does
so in a tight loop. There should probably be a configurable delay.
The interval in CVS has been changed to be 75ms, which looks pretty realistic.
