Comment 1 Matthias Saou 2005-05-18 14:38:02 UTC
This seems like an upstream bug, probably not packaging related. Could you
please report it on synergy's tracker?

Comment 2 Matthias Saou 2005-08-03 15:56:06 UTC
I'd be interested in knowing if this is fixed in 1.2.3.
Packages of 1.2.3 should be available in Extras real shortly.

Please let me know, as if I don't get more details, I'll probably close the bug
as "UPSTREAM" since this isn't a packaging issue in the first place.

Comment 3 Brian G. Anderson 2005-08-04 12:27:15 UTC
The problem hasn't gone away as of the most recent update 1.2.3-1.fc4

Comment 4 Brian G. Anderson 2005-08-04 12:45:41 UTC
I entered this upstream as bug 1251834 on for the synergy project

Comment 5 Matthias Saou 2005-08-04 13:40:24 UTC
Let me know if I can easily backport a patch from here when/if the problem gets
fixed. Do you mind if I close this bug as UPSTREAM now?

Comment 6 Brian G. Anderson 2005-08-04 15:50:47 UTC
I guess you can close it.  How do inform you when a patch appears?

Comment 7 Matthias Saou 2005-08-04 16:25:30 UTC
You can just add a comment to this closed bug or send me a personal email directly.

Comment 8 Brian G. Anderson 2005-08-05 22:21:26 UTC
Actually I just got a response to the bug I filed over at sourceforge: not a
bug.  It has to work this way so that synergy client doesn't get in an endless
loop.  Key repeat at the client keyboard repeats if one moves the synergy server
cursor back to the service desktop.  FYI.
