Now it seems that after a while (15-30 min) the X has been
started, the BounceDelay option resets or changes by itself,
as the problem suddenly comes back and you have to restart
X to get rid of it. Now does anyone know more of this problem,
or the BounceDelay option in overall and where it is stored
and is it possible that it is changing spontaneously, or
is this hardware really evil? ;-)
