Expected results: 4) gnome-terminal is filled with

More info: 1) xev also shows that ctrl is released and pressed multiple times even though I never release the physical key.

This is caused by #21 (sigh)

The problem is that the jitter compensation code fires too easily, causing ctrl to be released when it should not be. Is this on a slow line? Jitter? Were there many screen updates at the time?

Should be fixed by r263: jitter compensation was too trigger-happy

Please re-open if necessary.
