I filed a bug about this, but I've no idea what component to file it
against, so it's against something fairly random:
After updating Fedora 17 to latest a couple of days ago, my keyboard
In fact I found out that what's happening is an accessibility feature
called "slow keys" is getting activated. Unfortunately this is
activated silently, so there is no indication what has happened, nor
how to revert it. This is going to cause a lot of problems for less
technical users, since the only way out for them is to reboot.
Also, in the Accessibility menu, it shows that "slow keys" is
disabled. You have to enable and disable it (using the mouse) in
order to fix the bug.
And it keeps happening too ... It's happened twice already this
morning. I don't know what I am doing/pressing which starts this off.
Some usability lessons:
* Never activate a feature without visual feedback.
* Make it easy and obvious to revert.
* Provide a way to permanently disable accessibility features for
those who don't need them.
