Duplicated keystrokes on broadcast mode

Bug Description


I'm using Terminator 1.90-0~1694~ubuntu16.04.1 with English US (international, with dead keys) keyboard layout. With this layout I have to press SPACE after single-quotes or double-quotes, to get the quote, which is standard.

Terminator is duplicating the quotes when broadcast mode is On, using such keyboard layout.

As a quick fix, I'm using the English US (non international) layout only on Terminator, but sometimes I have to switch back to type some accented characters.

thanks in advance,

I take it you mean that the active terminal gets the single character, and all the receivers get the character twice?

Honestly the input system, and getting broadcast to work for all situations is a bit of a nightmare. I think this might need quite a deep dive to figure out even *if* we can fix this. It depends on what the numerous key events look like, and if it is possible to ignore some of them, without fouling the broadcast up for all the other cases.

Changed in terminator:
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Incomplete

Hmm. I just tested the head with the same us dead key layout, and I get a single character in the receiving terminals too. Are you using some input subsystem like xim or something? It might help if you describe your distro, desktop, and anything unusual (i.e. not a plain vanilla Ubuntu install using a normal input method and keyboard map.)

The problem seems to be gone with 1.90-0~1739~ubuntu16.04.1.

Marking as ummmmmm.... Fix Committed. Presumably we did *something* that changed the behaviour!
