Trouble with Emacs after upfrade from 11.3 to 11.4


I’m using emacs as editor. When using Emacs with any kernel for the 11.4 version, I observe that the cursor does not follow the arrow keys, and that some characters are randomly appearing in the Emacs text windows.

This disappears when using the failsafe kernel.

What could be the origin of this flaw and what can be done for solving this issue ?


This critical bug (P2 level) has just been reopened in Bugzilla
So far, the only solution for using Emacs with KDE and the 11.4 version consists in disabling the desktop effects, with either the system configuration menu or by using a failsafe kernel.
