I have this nasty problem:
Sometimes while extremely using the keyboard (for example while playing Quake 3) keys stay activated (=being pressed) even though I don't press them anymore.
Let me explain this with Quake 3: My player keeps on walking to the left though I stopped pressing the left move key, for example.
This must be an XFree86 issue because I started Q3 from the bash with xinit, no KDE...

Any idea?

I don't think this will help much, but this same thing happened to me playing Q3 on Window$. I never really fixed it until I moved from WinME to win2k.

Well this is not a Q3 issue! It must be a XFree86 issue because the keyboard repeating also sometimes occur in KDE... :?
