[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#657969: xfce4: Pressing Shift key toggles Slow Keys

Package: xfce4
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

When holding the Shift key for more than 10 secs. the 'Slow Keys' activate,
which renders the keyboard unresponsive for normal use.

Even if the option at "Settings > Accessibility > Keyboard > Use slow keys" is
unchecked, holding the Shift key will toggle this feature. This makes working
in programs like Inkscape, GIMP and the like extremely annoying, as you need to
keep disabling 'Slow Keys' every time it is *accidentally* enabled.

There should be an option to completely disable some or all accessibility
features for people that may not need them.
