Slow Typing notification blocks LMDE XFCE UP5

Postby on4aa on Tue Sep 25, 2012 3:17 pm

Since I have upgraded my LMDE XFCE to UP5, a "Slow Typing" notification with a keyboard icon occasionally appears for about one second after which the computer no longer accepts any keyboard input. :shock:
It appears to happen more often when dragging text, but it is very hard to reproduce the error.
I could not find any documentation about any "Slow Typing" feature.
As far as I know, the error is unrecoverable. I have to perform a hard reset, potentially resulting in data loss. :x

All suggestions are very welcome.

"Slow Typing" can be deactivated by pressing a [Shift] key for a very long time.
Incidentally, it can also be turned on in this manner.

Nonetheless, this remains a bug because I have noticed that "Slow Typing" sometimes turns on without holding any key.

Also, this needs to be documented in the help.
