Description Jack Magne 2006-08-18 12:36:22 EDT
Description of problem:

On my FC5 system ESC can not recognize 2 or more simultaneous 
USB security keys. ESC is not receiving notification of the insertion
event of the second attempted key.

The guess is this problem is taking place at the "coolkey" level
or below on the system.

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


Support rpms in place:


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch ESC
2. Place one USB key into system, everything is fine
3. Place another USB key into system, second one is not recognized
4. Take both keys out. Then system can accept keys again.
Actual results:
Only one key can be shown at a time by ESC.

Expected results:
ESC should be able to recognize multiple keys.
