Description Michael Chapman 2007-12-31 19:33:14 EST
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):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on Caps Lock
2. Click a row to begin editing the action
3. Press Escape or Backspace
Actual results:

Escape or Backspace is assigned to the action.

Expected results:

For Escape, the shortcut should revert back to the old setting. For Backspace,
the shortcut should be removed.

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...
