When recently I've switched to a PS/2 Keyboard attached to a USB
converter I started to experience strange typos.
The problem is extra characters sent to the machine while typing
fairly fast. It can be easily reproduced doing this:
1. xset r off
2. press and keep pressed a key, say 'd'
3. press and keep pressed another key, say 'w'
4. release the first key
5. at this point you should see "dwww" which is not what I expect
6. release the second key
7. at this point I see a "dwwww"
On a PS/2 keyboard connected directly to a PS/2 port (no converter in
between), this doesn't happen. Unfortunately I've got no USB
keyboard to try directly without the USB->PS/2 converter.
I was wondering if this is a problem of the USB converter or a
problem of the ukbd driver.
Does anybody else experience the same behaviour?
