[Solved] Xorg + fluxbox first keystroke lost

Hi,

Recently I've noticed a pretty strange thing. I'm running Arch with fluxbox on it and when I change workspaces my first key press after change is lost (ex. in doesn't show in urxvt). I'm using xorg-server 1.12.1-2, fluxbox 1.3.2-1, vanilla kernel 3.4.0-rc4 (64bit). It's an asus k52j laptop if it helps. The only thing I've noticed is the xev output after the workspace change.

That's the first keystroke

KeymapNotify event, serial 36, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
    keys:  68  0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   
           0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0  

And shortly after the second

KeyPress event, serial 36, synthetic NO, window 0x2400001,
    root 0x150, subw 0x0, time 1611281, (60,-19), root:(573,4),
    state 0x10, keycode 52 (keysym 0x7a, z), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (7a) "z"
    XmbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (7a) "z"
    XFilterEvent returns: False

I've pressed the same key twice 'z'.

Thanks for any help in advance,
xartii

Strange. Does the driver make a difference if you switch between "evdev" and "kbd"?

Re: [Solved] Xorg + fluxbox first keystroke lost

Changing driver from evdev (the one with the missing first key stroke) to kbd, results in completly useless keyboard outputing strange characters. In console (runlevel 3), not a terminal in X ,everything works fine so I suppose it's not my kernel misconfiguration. Any other ideas?

Bounce
Anybody has any other idea what can be wrong. I'm asking for help because I can't figure it out by myself.


Thanks in advance

Re: [Solved] Xorg + fluxbox first keystroke lost

Have you experimented with different values for XkbModel, XkbLayout and XkbRules?

Couldn't find out what was the problem but it got fixed after last Xorg update so the topic can be marked as solved.

Thanks for all help,
