I am experiencing an odd problem with keyboard repeating in KDE. I am running Vanilla KDE 4.1.3
Every once in a while, the keyboard simply stops repeating (by repeating, I mean when I hold a key down, it only sends the keystroke once, so if I hold down "f" it only shows "f" rather than "fffffffffffff"). I have auto-repeat enabled in xorg.conf and the repeat works fine in the virtual terminals. Coupled with this problem is that in systemsettings, the entire configuration for the keyboard is missing. However, in ~/.kde4/share/config/kcminputrc, KeyboardRepeating is set to true. I've also discovered that if I run kcminit, the problem temporarily gets fixed, only to happen again a little while later.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this?
