[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#506304: xfce4-mcs-plugins: Sticky keys get deactivated randomly

Package: xfce4-mcs-plugins
Version: 4.4.2-4
Severity: normal

I have Sticky Keys turned on, and during the middle of my session
Sticky Keys stop working.  If I go back to the Settings Manager and
reactivate them, it works again.  This will happen in the middle of a
session.  This seems to be the same bug that has been reported on
Xubuntu here:


One further note: I do not have the "Two Keys Disable" option turned
on.  I do sometimes press two keys at once, though.  (I just started
using sticky keys.)
