[Bug 1580732] Re: wireless keyboard - repeating characters unattended


*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1579190 ***

I am, once again, trying 4.6.0-040600-generic.  The problem hasn't re-
occurred yet.  However, given that it comes and goes when using 4.4
that's no guarantee that it is fixed.  Only quite a lot of time will

It's also not a supported combination with 16.04, which is itself of
some concern.

  wireless keyboard - repeating characters unattended

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When doing nothing at all, the screen (eg an editor, mail message,
  terminal etc) will start displaying '5' rapidly across the screen.

  I am a recent ubuntu 16.04 user - a fresh install "Linux TimPassingham
  4.4.0-22-generic #39-Ubuntu SMP Thu May 5 16:53:32 UTC 2016 x86_64
  x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux"

  I was previously on 14.04 and had no such issues.

  My keyboard is a Logitech wireless MK700/710.  There is nothing wrong
  with it in normal running, nor when using windows (dual-booted).

  I am not alone, and it is the same key (5) for others seeing this
  issue.  See https://askubuntu.com/questions/761522/ubuntu-16-04
