Description Ton Kersten 2002-12-05 14:52:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003 Description of problem: We are using the XDM display manager and when the login screen appears we try to switch to a virtual console (1-6) we almost always 'lose' the first time the Control key is pressed. The second time always works. We see this behaviour when logging in through X as well. We didn't try KDM and GDM, because we don't want them on these systems. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start a machine with a login screen from XDM's xlogin widget 2.When the login appears press Ctrl and (eg) F1. The system just beeps. Release the keys 3.Press Ctrl and F1 again and it works Actual Results: Everythings works OK, but it is rather anoying because our application relies on a lot of Ctrl key combo's Expected Results: The first Ctrl should be accepted Additional info: We created a work around, with a little C program that 'presses' the Ctrl button every time xdm starts. It will be sent along as an attachment.

Created attachment 87526 [details] Work around. Presses Ctrl key once.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-12-06 08:08:14 UTC
Are you using a KVM switch?
Comment 3 Ton Kersten 2002-12-06 08:18:11 UTC
No, I don't. I directly use the system keyboard, screen and mouse.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2002-12-19 10:51:17 UTC
I'm unable to reproduce this in RHL 7.2, 7.3, 8.0, or rawhide XFree86. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE, as it works for me, and it is quite a trivial issue that if you were to provide a way to reproduce it reliably to me, it would be very low priority, and only stand a chance of getting fixed in rawhide due to that.
