multi_key/compose key repeats
Last modified: 2009-10-23 02:05:10 EDT
Description of problem:
The Multi_key or compose key has auto-repeat enabled.
I map the right ALT key to Compose:
setxkbmap -option compose:ralt
Certain programs like gnome-terminal and gvim start beeping if I hold down the Compose key. I launched 'xev' and held down the Compose key and watched hundreds of KeyPress and KeyRelease events fly by.
Curiously, this happens when running Gnome, KDE, and Xfce, but NOT under IceWM or Fvwm2, so this may be tied to the window manager.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setxkbmap -option compose:ralt
3. hold down right ALT key
many KeyPress and KeyRelease events
a single KeyPress and KeyRelease event
I just tested this on F11 and it works - closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
Sorry for the long silence.
