After upgrading from Leap 15.3 to 15.4, the xterm fails to print some lines of output until a key is pressed, or prints with substantial delay. It happens often enough to be annoying, and seldom enough to reproduce. The last time it was while running gdisk - quite a bit of fun.
I’ve noticed the following in /var/log/messages:
2023-08-04T14:17:52.969022+02:00 myhost /usr/lib/gdm/gdm-x-session: (EE) event6 - Metadot - Das Keyboard Das Keyboard: client bug: event processing lagging behind by 18ms, your system is too slow
I’ve got an AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT 12-Core Processor, GeForce RTX 2070 Super GPU.
CPU utilization at the moment is minimal. Memory also seem to be abundant:
total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem: 62Gi 3,6Gi 56Gi 39Mi 3,7Gi 59Gi
Swap: 62Gi 0B 62Gi
Any idea what to look for? What can be done to fix the issue?
Thanks in advance!
“Reproducible: Always” does not apply. For instance, I’ve tried to reproduce the bug that you mentioned, but worked fine for me despite having a rather elaborate .vimrc.
On Leap 15.3 it worked fine.
I’ve tried to run top and stop it via Ctrl+C. This reproduces the problem more frequently. I’ve also noticed, that not any key brings xterm back to normal, but only those that add something to the picture: a letter, arrow up (but not arrow left or right).
