Bug Description

GNOME Shell & mutter on 3.33.91
When pressing volume up or down on Xorg and keeping it pressed, only the first key event is sent, so the volume only goes up or down once, and doesn't scale up/down as long as you keep the button pressed.

This is a regression for our vast majority of users using the normal ubuntu product and quite visible one, I wouldn't put it as low.
