Comment 28 for bug 221112

Just made a check with xev.
Everything seems fine at xev level.

From xev point of view pressing space returns char 20 => which indeed is a space.

My latest idea about "oss" being the source of the problem is not the good one.

Did you try the configuration to reproduce the bug ?

That is :

=> xorg.conf such as the attachment I made
=> Set 'France Alternative' as default keyboard in GNOME.

then

launch rhythmbox and try to search with something including a space caracter.
