When keyz-zkb is installed, the backlight keeps
flashing with OZ 3.2 until any other key is pressed.

Teporary workaround (other than to not installing keyzb):
Set "Auto Repeat Delay" and "Auto Repeat Period" both to
Then after you have hold the menu key and the light went
off, _shortly_ press the key again. And again to close the
menu that opened.
Of course this effectively makes any key repeat
functionality unusable. But who really needs that anyway.
And more "of course" it would be nicer if this program was
actually maintained and either key-repeat was
switch-off-able or wouldn't effect the panel keys.
After reading about bug 699882 I found even a temporary fix
not only a workaround by editing the configuration files:
Replace the "autorepeat=true" in that line with
[For people not used to vi:
Position the cursor on the 't' of true
4 times 'x'
'ESC' (on the zaurus that's the Cancle button on the front)
'Shift Z' 'Shift Z'
You might want to do the same for the "Calendar",
"Adressbook", "Menu" and "Mail" entries.
Two minor problems:
1. If you use these keys for anything in a game, holding
them down probably won't work anymore. But you could
probably write a keyboard-profile for that, just copy the
old entries into an xml file.
2. You can't switch the light twice in a row without
pressing a different key in between, i.e. <Menu button long>
will switch off the light, but an immediate <Menu button
long> again won't switch it on again, you have to press
something else in between.
