Two days ago I did a one week -due general upgrading. After rebooting, the "Down" key changed its usual behavior: keeping the key pressed should keep producing Down events (I use it sometimes to scroll a google page without the mouse, or to move down across a text editing page). Now, it only sends one event. If I want to scroll down two lines I have to press twice. The Up key still has the usual behavior. I checked with xev that events are not being sent (i.e., they are not just being ignored). I suspected a keyboard hw probem, and so I used xmodmap to map another key (AltGr, right next to the space bar) to be another Down. It worked well yesterday, but today, after booting, new and old key have both the same strange behavior.
I have no idea what package may be causing this...
Check the keyboard settings from KDE/Gnome/Xfce control panel, if you us one of them. Don't know how the keyboard settings are handled on window-managers and such.
