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.
