Description Michal Hlavinka 2009-05-10 05:42:36 EDT
Description of problem:
when I press PrtScr, it calls ksnapshost and makes one screenshot. When I hit it several times, it produces several screenshots. Problem occurs, when I hold the key for (even very short) time, it starts calling ksnapshot again and again... For PrtScr holded about 1 sec, I got more than 60 ksnapshots and still continuing...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kde 4.2.3
qt 4.5.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.hold prtscr for some (even short) time 
Actual results:
ksnapshot called again and again and again...

Expected results:
limited number of ksnapshots

Sorry, that's just how keyboard repeat works, not much ksnapshot can do there.
Comment 2 Michal Hlavinka 2009-05-11 03:24:54 EDT
Yes, I know, ksnapshot should be called more than once, but when I hold PrtScr for just one second, it's called more than 60 times (and keep going). But when I hold for example 'a' for the same time, it's printed only 5 times. In my opinion, key buffer is filled too fast. Just if I press PrtScr little bit slower (pushed just little bit longer than key repeat delay), it doesn't seem to stop calling ksnapshot (more than 60 times doesn't mean "something about 65 times" but "after more than 60 ksnapshots, I've killed it").
