Bug#630939: spurious key event after key repeat

I started to report this on xfce4-terminal, but then I also saw the same
bug in roxterm. So reporting against libvte.. however, I do *not* see
this bug in gnome-terminal.
Hold down the down arrow key so it repeats, go down a good number of
lines, and then release. The scrolling immediately stops, as would be
expected. Then, approximatly 2 seconds later, the cursor scrolls down
one more time, as if the key had been pressed, but it had not.
I can reproduce this easily, although not all the time. More than often
enough to be highly annoying and send me looking for another terminal.
I mostly see it with arrow keys, but I also just reproduced it by
mashing down the d key:
^ ^^-- a second later it went to here
I started here |
I stopped here
As a vi user, I'm now officially terrified...
I have observed the problem in mutt, vim, and less. I have not seen it when
running eg, cat -- perhaps it has something to do with programs that stty raw?
My window manager, in case it matters, is xmonad. I'm using the xfce4
desktop otherwise I have all accessability settings disabled. I don't see
extra spurious keypresses with xev.
