- Subject: Control_L and Control_R release same?
Hello. I recently noticed that if I ssh to my linux box and do this:
Hold down left control key and press and release x
While still holding down the left control key, press and hold down the right
While still holding down the right control key, release the left control key
Press and release c
That works as expected. I get a ^X^C. But, if I start up an xterm and
repeat the same steps, I get: ^Xc
It seems that when going through the X client that the release of either
control key generates the same key release signal.
Why does this matter? I am a little fast and sloppy while using emacs.
When my fingers happen to land on both control keys at some instant, the
next control character I think I am typing comes out as the unmodified
character. Very annoying.
This same behavior does not happen if I run an X client from a linux box,
only when running from Windows and attaching to the linux box.
Thank you for your help.
