1 Does anyone else suffer this ailment?

3 In KDE, my right ctrl key is sending ctrl AND THEN a linefeed. It is REALLY
4 annoying.
5
6 It's a PS/2 Dell keyboard and I use a Dell USB mouse. This doesn't happen at
7 the console.
8
9 bill$ xmodmap
10 xmodmap: up to 4 keys per modifier, (keycodes in parentheses):
11
12 shift Shift_L (0x32), Shift_R (0x3e)
13 lock Caps_Lock (0x42)
14 control Control_L (0x25), Control_R (0x69)
15 mod1 Alt_L (0x40), Alt_R (0x6c), Meta_L (0xcd)
16 mod2 Num_Lock (0x4d)
17 mod3
18 mod4 Super_L (0x85), Super_R (0x86), Super_L (0xce), Hyper_L
19 (0xcf)
20 mod5 ISO_Level3_Shift (0x5c), Mode_switch (0xcb)
21
22 My /etc/conf.d/keymaps just has
23 KEYMAP="us"
24 SET_WINDOWKEYS="yes"
25
26 and that's it. My keyboard layout is for a generic 104-key keyboard. I use a
27 USA layout and a Greece polytonic layout which yields this in the KDE
28 keyboard layout screen:
29
30 setxkbmap -model pc104 -layout us,gr -variant ,polytonic
31
32 Also, it doesn't repeat.
33
34 Wow, it gets even more weird. I just ran "startkde" from xinit and with
35 EVERY keystroke I see "kglobalaccel" spewing out EVERY
36
37 "GlobalShortcutsRegistry::registerKey: Registering key "blah blah blah" for
38 "KDEappgoeshere" : "Shortcut name"
39
40 and then unregistering the whole set again. I can kill kglobalaccel and it
41 stops the printout, but I still get the weird linefeed when I use the right
42 control key in a terminal.
