#2939 closed defect (needinfo)

Ctrl key stuck when switching windows

Reported by: Francesco Potortì Owned by: Francesco Potortì
Priority: major Milestone: 4.1
Component: android Version: 3.0.x
Keywords: Cc:


Sometimes it happens that when switching to another non-xpra window and back to the xpra window the Ctrl key is stuck: every letter I press in the xpra window is modified by Ctrl. If I press Ctrl, things revert back to normal.

This happens frequently, but not most of times. I have not yet found a way to reproduce it.

If you can reproduce it, please include the log with --debug=keyboard enabled on the server side.

All key events are sent to the server with the list of active modifiers and the server will do whatever is needed to ensure that the current server-side state of modifiers matches that of the client.

This is needed for the case you describe and also when alt-tabbing away from a window.
With most OSes xpra will see the Alt and Tab keys being pressed but by the time they are released it no longer has focus and does not get the key release event.

Bump. Without more details, I will have to close this ticket as 'needinfo.

No way. I tried to reproduce it several times, but I cannot ever seem to guess the sequence of events leading to the bug. Once I had it happen with Shift (rather than Ctrl).

Will keep trying...
