Screenkey freeze when left clicking the icon in the panel and doesn't react anymore. The latest keys are still shown in the overlay but no new ones. Clicking the panel icon doesn't change anything also no right click. Only killing the program removes the overlay.

Thanks meles,
In the next release I'll add a debug option to see wich key combination causes this bug.

Changed in screenkey:
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Medium

I tried to find the keys or key combination which cause the problems because I found out that it's no just the mouse. I tried many variations but I couldn't find any scheme. I recorded the pressed buttons and post the file below. First I just recorded the key numbers after it I recorded it more detailed. "NEW SESSION" in the file, means that the program crashed and I restarted it. I hope the file is useful in any case.
My latest guess was that changing the focus of the windows (even with the mouse) leads to the crash but I couldn't confirm.

   $ screenkey --debug --no-detach
to see wich key combination causes the problem
