Description Markus Armbruster 2008-04-30 15:05:42 EDT
Description of problem:
The guest's NumLock state can get out of sync with the host's.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Last observed with kernel-xen-2.6.18-91.el5 in the guest, and xen-3.0.3-64.el5
in the host.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start PVFB guest, open its graphical console
2. Check status of guest NumLock (use gdm's user name entry to test), and status
of host NumLock in a suitable host window (e.g. terminal)
3. Toggle NumLock in the guest console window, check again
4. Toggle NumLock outside the guest console window, check again
Actual results:
Initial state of guest's NumLock may or may not match hosts.  Step 3 toggles
both host's and guest's NumLock.  Step 4 toggles only host's NumLock.

Expected results:
Initial state matches, and stays in sync through steps 3 and 4.

Partialy fixed by patch for bz #552612. However, there is errors in keyboard layout parsing to get NumLock synchronization to work properly.
