Re: Fatal bug warning (X server/Keyboard control)

I've been bit 3 times recently where my system froze up and I couldn't recover
with warm booting. This occurred when I was going into the X-server on the
Lispm (OBS console but probably occurs on any non-embedded lispm).
I believe I have tracked it down to a problem deep in the guts of console
input (and I've reported my suspicions to Symbolics). It appears that
mixing input buffers with the :RAW property and enabling auto-repeat is
the problem. The only two systems that I know of that use this :RAW property
are Keyboard Control and the X server.
Actually, given the problems I've had with auto-repeat on my UX-400s, it may
well not be limited to non-embedded lispms.
