Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427123
Keyboard Shortcuts applet allows Escape, Backspace to be assigned when Caps Lock is on
Last modified: 2008-03-31 08:34:22 EDT
Description of problem:
When Caps Lock is on, the Keyboard Shortcuts applet lets you assign Escape and
Backspace to actions.
When editing an action, Escape is supposed to cancel the edit, Backspace is
supposed to clear the assigned shortcut. These work correctly when Caps Lock is off.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on Caps Lock
2. Click a row to begin editing the action
3. Press Escape or Backspace
Escape or Backspace is assigned to the action.
For Escape, the shortcut should revert back to the old setting. For Backspace,
the shortcut should be removed.
Good catch. Filed upstream with patch at:
Fixed in rawhide. I won't commit the fix to Fedora 8, as you're the only person
to have noticed this problem in the past ~2/3 years that the code existed...
