Package: xfce4-settings
Version: 4.6.5-2
Severity: important
Tags: sid

Having had to turn on sticky keys because of a problem with the way of my linux
maxhine interpreting modifiers keys I bumped into a problem. After turning the
sticky keys on the keyboard is usable in a more decent characteristic, however
the sticky keys - if the keyboard is not being used get turned off. Further
more the settings for them are not being saved after a restart. The sticky keys
functionality works again after unchecking and checking the checkbox in the
accessibility settings dialog.

Is there a fix for that  ? Or should I use the xmodmap to set the sticky keys
and keep them working all the time or this will not work in the X.org ?
