What information can I ask the reporter for?

I will give him the address of this report, in case he finds it more convenient to contact you directly.

    Looking at the /etc/init.d/keytouch script installed by the Debian package, I think this can be caused by keytouch-acpid. Because keytouch-acpid runs on a laptop (with acpid running), it will not exit. keytouch-acpid will not daemonize itself, so the script is responsible for making keytouch-acpid run at the background.

    Thank you. The original submitter has confirmed that it's my script at fault. Thus, I'm closing this report.
