At the beginning I thought is was a hardware problem, even if it started
immediately after I upgraded to CVS radeon driver. But then, I noticed that the
problem I am describing below doesn't show up in text mode (vt 1-6), so it must
be related with X.
The (pretty annoying) problem is the following one: after pressing the shift
key and releasing it, the next key I hit sometimes behave like the shift key
were still pressed. The problem shows up in an interesting (?) and sistematic
way.... it is not at all random!
Here are some examples.
Example 1 (bad): press the shift key (don't press any other key at the
same time), release the shift key, then press several times the "a" key, this
is what you get: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Example 2 (bad): press and release the shift key twice (no other key pressed
at the same time), then press several times the "a" key: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
in this situation, if I hit the shift key and release it once, then: aaaaaaaa
Example 3 (good): now press and release the shift key three times: aaaaaaaaaa
Example 4 (bad): press and release shift key four times: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
(back to example 1)
Example 5 (good): if I type "Daniele" like it should be... everything is OK.
Similar problems with other special keys (ctrl, alt).
Is this a known problem (I couldn't find it in the archives). Any hint on how
to fix it?
BTW... I upgraded to CVS to take advantage of the suspend/resume
but I cannot resume correctly (swsusp) if using dri (with no acceleration
everything is fine).
Hope you can help me,
