I’ve read some old posts on this problem but I occasionally encounter it when I am on a connection with higher latency, on current builds. My use case involves using NoMachine across oceans. While I don’t mind slow responsiveness (it is expected), the NoMachine behavior of spewing repeat keypresses on the server side has in the past caused me great inconvenience when doing certain things.
Typing “Hello” but getting “Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeello” isn’t so bad, but pressing Backspace once then getting 50 Backspaces results in data loss. I’ve had unwanted up/down/left/right repeats screw me up as well while editing documents.
Could this be made more robust somehow? My feeling is that it is easily reproducible simply by connecting to a server far, far away.
I’m using the current consumer Linux products, but this has happened to me under Windows as well.
