Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.4.7-1
Severity: normal
Tags: sid


today my terminals stopped reacting to keyboard input twice. I don't
have any way to reproduce this issue yet. All I can say is that I was
using the keyboard and suddenly the terminal stopped echoing keyboard
input. It's not only a display issue as screen shortcuts like C-a-a
didn't work anymore either. Pressing C-q doesn't help.

The only thing I found is the following line in ~/.xsession-errors:

(xfce4-terminal:13006): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_widget_event: assertion `WIDGET_REALIZED_FOR_EVENT (widget, event)' failed

This is repeated several hundred times. The file doesn't contain any
timestamps, but from the files modification time I can tell that this
message coincides with the keyboard problem.

I'll be happy to help tracking down the source of the problem.
