Package: xfce4-settings
Version: 4.8.3-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I have nothing enabled in xfce4-accessibility-settings, but if I leave
my finger on the shift key for a few seconds, Slow Keys activates.

I would expect that if "Use Slow Keys" is not ticked in the
accessibility settings dialog, then I should not be able to activate the
feature from the keyboard.  It looks as if this setting is actually
there to turn the feature on immediately (rather than to allow its
enablement by pressing shift).  Obviously it's perfectly reasonable to
have it available by *default*, however there should I think be some way
to prevent its activation altogether for those who don't want it.

I often pause at the start of sentences with one finger on the shift
key, ready for the opening capital letter, so being unable to prevent
Slow Keys' activation is a little awkward.

Similarly, tapping my finger on the shift key activates sticky keys, and
it would be handy to be able to prevent that too.
