Description Alexey Neyman 2003-03-25 03:30:26 EST
Description of problem: 
Sometimes KDE stops receiving keyboard input. Mouse works ok, and so do 
the rest of applications. However, no keyboard input passes to the 
applications. I've observed this 3 times, each time in case of different 
activity (Konqueror, Konsole, MPlayer). 
Hitting ctrl-alt-backspace kills X server successfully, though. I also was 
able to log out from KDE session that brought me to the KDM login prompt; 
keyboard started responding again. 
Last time it happened I also noticed that the keyboard layout switcher's 
icon disappeared in the system tray when the keyboard hung. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
Though I am not sure which component is in charge of this... 
How reproducible: 
Hardly; usually happens in 3-4 days of X session uptime.

Could you please tell me how i can produce this bug?

There is new kde 3.1.1 for 8.0 on ftp.kde.org. Could you please try kde-3.1.1
from ftp.kde.org. Does it fix this problem for you?

Comment 2 Alexey Neyman 2003-03-26 09:07:41 EST
I cannot reproduce it reliably, it just happens from time to time. 
I'll try the recent KDE packages and see if it helps. 
Comment 3 Alexey Neyman 2003-04-02 07:13:36 EST
Seems that upgrading to 3.1.1 solves this problem. A week has passed withough 
any evidence of such mishaps.
