Description of problem:
With my HP Omnibook XE3 after resuming from hibernation the keyboard repeat rate
is not the same where it was before hibernating. If I try to set the repeat rate
back to the value I want it with command "xset r rate 250 30" the repeating
stops totally. After that it only outputs one character for example to xterm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. xset r rate 250 30
1. Check that repeating works fast enough
4. Press a key long enough to notice that the repeat rate is back to slow
5. xset r rate 250 30
6. Press a key again to notice that it won't repeat at all
Actual Results: After the resume the repeating got back to the default value.
After trying to set it back, the repeating did not work at all, I only was able
to type one character at a keypress.
Expected Results: Preferred would be that after suspend it would be the same as
it was before suspend. It could also work, if I would be able to get the
repeating back to where I want it automatically.
The problem did not occur with Red Hat 7.2 or XFree86 of Red Hat 7.2 installed
in Red Hat 7.3.
I'm curious if this problem only occurs on that specific notebook, or
if it occurs on all hardware resuming from suspend.
Arjan, have you heard any reports like this? This is the first report
I've seen of this.
Defering for future investigation.
Resolved in phoebe + rawhide updates.
