At the end of the log files appears the us keyboard !
100% the same bug with:
Also after this update have a problem with keyboard speed settings. It's defined by xfce settings manager (keyboard settings) with fast key repeat speed.
But the problem, for example, my LEFT key works with usual (slow) speed, but RIGHT key is ok (fast). The same with UP/DOWN keys.
The SAME problem was happened few months ago and was connected to evdev changes.
