Xorg log from a crash instance
Description of problem:
Keyboard becomes unresponsive intermittently in X.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have a pattern.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. General usage, no specific causes that I could tell.
The keyboard becomes unresponsive. Alt-tabbing and input into any area that would normally react to the keyboard doesn't work. EXCEPT Ctrl-Alt-F2 to switch to the console has worked so far, so I can kill the session and come back.
The mouse still functions, in fact it usually behaves as if Alt were being held down, as the cursor turns to the ``move window'' cursor when the mouse is used on them while the keyboard is unresponsive. This hasn't happened before in Fedora 10, so I assume this is not a physical keyboard problem.
Sometimes the session also kills itself shortly (maybe a minute) after the symptoms appear.
The keyboard not doing the above...
I am running KDE 4.2, I'm not sure if it has any direct control over the keyboard. dmesg seems to show no kernel-y problems during the keyboard stoppage.
This is some kind of SELinux geekery. Assigning.
SELinux for X disabled by default in rawhide, closing.
