Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 655048
Ctrl/Alt state incorrect if they are held down when spicec window is selected
Last modified: 2010-12-02 14:11:52 EST
Description of problem:
I use multiple workspaces on my gnome desktop. I typically switch between them using Ctrl-Alt-LeftArrow and Ctrl-Alt-RightArrow. I also use focus-follows-mouse. If I switch workspaces when the mouse is positioned such that it is over the spicec window on the new workspace, spicec will become selected while both Ctrl and Alt are pressed. When I release the keys and start typing in the guest, the effect is as though Ctrl and Alt are still pressed and held down. Hitting Ctrl and Alt a few times seems to resolve the issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure at least 2 workspace on a gnome desktop
2. Configure focus follows mouse (in System->Preferences->Windows)
3. Place the spicec window in the center of workspace 2
4. View workspace 1, and place the mouse in the center of the screen
5. Hold down Ctrl-Alt-RightArrow
Workspace 2 will be selected, and spicec will get focus
6. Press 'd' in a terminal window in the guest
The terminal window closes on receiving Ctrl-d
The terminal window displays a 'd'
I've a patch for this upstream, expect an update fixing this soon.
