Description Peter Hutterer 2011-09-01 00:42:31 UTC
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
User PointerKeys to move between screens.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use multi-head xorg.conf such as the one attached. Not RandR, it has to be different screen sections
2. Enable PointerKeys: setxkbmap -option "keypad:pointerkeys"
3. Activate PointerKeys by pressing Shift + NumLock
4. Move cursor with keypad 4 or 6 across the screen boundary
5. Boom!
Additional info:
QA: this requires ati or nvidia cards to reproduce, afaik the intel driver does not support this configuration so the bug cannot be triggered.
