Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-02 23:32:53 UTC
I'm unable to reproduce this. I'm getting as many other people as I can muster up to also test it to see if anyone at all out there can reproduce it first though.

Created attachment 89798 [details] ~/.Xmodmap Strange; I see it at least on 4 machines. They are differing from the RH beta in the following points: - an ~/.Xmodmap file (see attachment) - Gnome1 desktop-environment The "InputDevice" in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 on one of the affected machines is Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Keyboard0" Driver "keyboard" Option "XkbLayout" "us" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" EndSection
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-03 12:03:11 UTC
Well those are rather IMHO significant "differences" from the Red Hat beta. Can you reproduce this problem on a stock phoebe system without any addons or customizations? ie: no GNOME 1, no custom Xmodmap files, no custom anything? I don't want to research this further until I know we're playing on an even field here, in particular because nobody has been able to reproduce this so far.
Comment 4 Enrico Scholz 2003-02-03 12:23:02 UTC
I can reproduce it without Gnome1 and/or a custom ~/.Xmodmap file: | $ X & | $ DISPLAY=:0 xterm
Comment 5 Charles R. Anderson 2003-02-03 16:51:25 UTC
Confirmed here: XFree86-126.96.36.199-20030129.1 X & DISPLAY=:0.0 xterm & /*-+ on the numeric keypad won't repeat. Other keys on the keypad do repeat, including numbers when numlock is turned on. /*-+ on the normal part of the keyboard do repeat. Tried "xset r on" with no change.
Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-03 16:58:40 UTC
Ok, I've done a completely fresh install of the latest tree, and I can now reproduce this with XFree86-188.8.131.52-20030129.4. Reporting bug upstream.
Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2003-04-16 00:46:58 UTC
Ivan Pascal found and fixed this issue quite a while ago, which got into 4.3.0, and should be fixed and working in Red Hat Linux 9. I just tested my 9 box, and the / * - + keys on the numeric keypad, and the Fx keys autorepeat ok in xev. Closing bug as fixed in CURRENTRELEASE of RHL 9. If the problem comes back, report the bug upstream at http://bugs.xfree86.org, and reopen this bug and put the upstream bug report URL here and I'll track it. Thanks.
