           Summary: Shift randomly hangs for tens of seconds
           Product: UIM
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: x86-64 (AMD64)
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: uim-bugs at freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: mikael.cordon at gmail.com

Since several months, when I'm typing, shift key activates itself randomly and
keeps activated for 30 or 60 seconds. And I cannot deactivate it until this
time and it deativates by itself. Very annoying.

This bug has been reported many times there:

As we can see, this weird behaviour hits different systems (Debian, Ubuntu,
ArchLinux) and different desktops environments (Gnome, KDE), but there are
common points:
— X.org system, and in console mode there is no problem
— a Pinnacle PC TV card

Despite of its randomness, this problem is reproductable: type text in any
software, and let the time act… shift hang (I can continue typing but like if I
hold the shift-key down all the time)… wait until shift deactivate itself…
continue typing.
(this shift-problem has raised 5 times during this post-writing)

Maybe related… Since few days, roughly frequently, focus on the foreground
application is lost: it does not receive text input, nor shortcuts, and I must
switch to another application and switch back to my application to get focus
(this raised about 10 times during this post-writing)
