Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 379611
Spare keystroke after switching to X
Last modified: 2009-02-08 10:15:15 EST
Description of problem:
<F12> in an active window
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
The string "<F12>" appears in the editor.
Should we have opened another program, we would see the function bound to F12 there.
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.

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
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.
Peter: you are right, after "yum update 'xorg*'", the bug disappeared.
Sorry that my reaction is so late, and thank you for your work!
