#193 IT Keyboard layout is lost after some typing

keyboard (11)

I noticed that after some combination of keys pressed, the accents does not print anymore. After many tries I'm not able to tell what is the combination that cause this problem.

The effect is that è becomes e, à becomes a , etc...

Restarting rdesktop is the only way to fix this.

My specs :
Local System : Xubuntu 9.04
Remote System : windows 2003 server
Keyboard Layout : IT
Rdesktop : 1.6.0

    UPDATE : i think i found the way to reproduce problem (probably is linked with the numeric pad issue) :

    press 'à'
    press CAPS LOCK
    press 'à' will result in 'A' char as output
    press a number from numeric keypad (num lock inserted)
    press 'à' will result in 'a' char (without accent)

    So the state of the keyboard is strange, because it seems returned to lower case mode, but accents are gone.

    Pressing CAPS LOCK again is solving the problem, but now i have accents and capital letters at the same time, and this is very bad.

    Workaround to fix the problem completely is to use numeric keypad again , to have another inversion of status changes (lower letters and accents activated).

    Hi there! I'm unable to reproduce the problem, do you still encounter the problem with Rdesktop 1.7? If I don't get any answer before Friday the 8th of July 2011 I will close this.
