Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 606258
Both shift keys for keyboard layout switching doesn't work correctly
Last modified: 2010-07-08 06:27:30 EDT
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):
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.
The keyboard starts rapidly switching between USA, CZE layouts.
Pushing both shift keys together works as expected. Holding both shift keys together for a while also causes rapid layout switching.

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 ;)
