Subject: Keyboard repeat problem on Portege 4000
I use XFree86 4.1.0 on a Toshiba Portege 4000 laptop installed from
NetBSD's xsrc module which was updated today, just before the compilation.
The problem is that when typing fast the keyboard sends some keys twice or
more ressulttinggg llikkke thhiiisss. The problem is only in X, not on
console, and only with the internal keyboard of the laptop, not the
external. I have tried to fix the problem with the X "BounceKeys" setting,
and it seems to help for a while, but after being in X for something like
20-30 minutes, it seems like the BounceKeys option resets itself, and they
keyboard starts repeating by itself again.
I know that the problem has occurred on other people too, namely Hubert
Freyer (http://mail-index.netbsd.org/tech-x11/2001/11/02/0000.html), and
under a different operating system also using XFree86 4.1.0, namely Linux
It would be great if there was a solution to this, but even if there
isn't, I'd appreciate if someone gave me tips on how to debug this
problem more. How can I probe the BounceKeys option status while
running X, for example.
