[Bug 1309803] [NEW] Oscillating speed (of key repeat, animations, time, etc) after upgrade to 14.04


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

After my upgrade to 14.04, I rebooted and logged in again. I noticed
that several aspects, including key repeating, seemed to accelerate in
their speed over a short period of time, and then at the peak of speed
(such that, for example, the quickest key press I could manage would
nonetheless print at least 15 of the key, and the page loading animation
in Chrome tabs was spinning quicker than the eye could distinguish) it
would suddenly drop back down to what appears to be the base set rate.

I switched to VT1 and saw this happen there too, so it wasn't merely
confined to KDE or even X11.

Upon rebooting again, the problem had vanished. I was encouraged on
#kubuntu to submit a bug, so here we are!
