#1119 closed defect (fixed)

altgr workaround causes spurious ctrl key events to be sent

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: alas
Priority: major Milestone: 0.17
Component: keyboard Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

Related to #62, see also #923, #824, #759, #602, #425.

The workaround detects when Alt_R follows Control_L and undoes the control keypress. This causes applications to see the control key pressed briefly.
We should try to detect those spurious key events and avoid sending them.

Status: newassigned

Mostly implemented in r11924 + r11926

Still TODO:

  • verify spurious numlock changes (caused by firing from a timer instead of key event?)
  • backports for older branches - after checking for regressions (as per list of tickets in bug description)

@afarr: just a FYI, please close. You are unlikely to trigger this code unless you use a keyboard layout using altgr on win32.

Noted... and I don't, so I'll just close and presume I'll remember if it ever comes up again.
