PVFB's NumLock doesn't stay in sync with host's
Last modified: 2011-01-13 17:16:16 EST
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.
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
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.
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.
