Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-03-18 11:42:31 EDT
I was just playing around with Dave Airlie's awesome new
no-mode-setting-on-user-switch intel driver, and in the process had a several
different simultaneous logins going on.  When I was done, I logged out of them
one by one until I got back to my session which had a lock dialog up.

Every key I pressed triggered three bullets into the password field.  I clicked
on the "Leave a Message" button and typed in the text area there "hello" but it
showed up as "hhheeelllooo"

I then clicked the "Switch User" button which brought up a gdm greeter.  There I
was able to type my password and switch back to myself with no problem and after
switching back X behaved fine.

Ray, can you give me an update on this bug please? Is it still an issue?

Basically evdev grabs the device file so two servers can't access the same
device. We've seen duplicate events in the past when two devices were set up on
the same device file, but this shouldn't happen with evdev.

Can you please post your xorg.conf and your Xorg.log?

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
