Description Stepan Kasal 2007-11-13 04:45:57 EST
Description of problem:
<F12> in an active window

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
My inittab contains mingetty lines for tty1 -- tty11, so X opens on tty12.
Initdefault is 3.
1. startx, open a terminal, vi, the 'i' to get to insert mode
2. ctrl-alt-F1 to get to the console
3. alt-F12 to get back to X
Actual results:
The string "<F12>" appears in the editor.
Should we have opened another program, we would see the function bound to F12 there.

Expected results:
No keystroke shall be delivered to the application.

I have a custom keybard driver on console, may that be the reason?
Hints for debugging this would be welcome.

what kind of custom keyboard driver you have? Sorry, forgot to ask you in persona.

Comment 9 Peter Hutterer 2008-10-13 02:22:46 EDT
Stephan: do you still have this issue with the current version in F9?
I can't reproduce it, at least not with VT7. 

If you still experience this issue, can you please attach the out.xkb file after running "xkbcomp -xkb :0 out.xkb". thanks.
Comment 10 Stepan Kasal 2008-11-24 08:41:25 EST
Peter: you are right, after "yum update 'xorg*'", the bug disappeared.

Sorry that my reaction is so late, and thank you for your work!
