[Bug 1550050] Re: repeating phantom key when bt disconnects


Generally I don't think this is because of a lacking key event. If the
keyboard goes away also its corresponding input device node will
disappear. If that happens the upper input stack should take care about
that. Adding mir as component here too to get their view on this while
doing some more investigation.

Bug description:
  Every now and then when having bt mouse/keyboard connected - you will
  see when selecting a text box there is a repeating character (there is
  no specific character, but always repeats)

  It seems to be related somehow to bt devices disconnecting
  the only cure is a reboot

  This was reproduced by turning off the keyboard while holding down a
  key. We suspect the key up event is never delivered. This mimics the
  case where the BT connection drops off momentarily or perhaps an event
  is missed over the BT connection.
