Description Jaroslav Škarvada 2010-06-21 09:10:39 UTC
Description of problem:
If keyboard layout switcher is configured to "both shift keys", holding one shift (left or right) for a while causes layout switching.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always for me, tested on one machine, all accounts including newly created.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add czech keyboard layout (CZE). 
2. Change keyboard layout switcher to "both shift keys".
3. Hold left or right shift for a while.
Actual results:
The keyboard starts rapidly switching between USA, CZE layouts.

Expected results:
Nothing happens.

Additional info:
Pushing both shift keys together works as expected. Holding both shift keys together for a while also causes rapid layout switching.

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-system-setup-keyboard.conf

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"system-setup-keyboard"
	MatchIsKeyboard	"on"
	Option		"XkbModel"	"pc105+inet"
	Option		"XkbLayout"	"us"
	Option		"XkbVariant"	"(null)"
	Option		"XkbOptions"	"terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp,"

This issue is very annoying because it renders the shift key unusable in this configuration.

Today after installing regular updates it seems that it is working again ;)
