Horizon Client for Linux fouls key repeating permanently!

I've installed the client on a number of Debian platforms, including even Ubuntu, and seen this happen on all of them.

 

Once Horizon Client has launched a remote session, the operating system's key repeating function (when you hold a key like space or backspace down and after a second it starts repeating) becomes inoperative.  Once this happens, it also stays this way until the X session is restarted or system re-booted (including after Horizon is shut down). 

 

Was this intentional or how does one fix this or stop it from happening?

Hi, 

I have a similar issue on Horizon Client for Linux v 2106. Key starts repeating unexpectedly and it doesn't stop until I press a different key. (it can go like that for minutes or hours). Having ticket opened with VMware which are investigating this. Will post here the solution once I have it. Or if someone else has a solution already, it would be helpful.

@icsmasy or @cparke2 do either of you have a VMware SR that you can send? We also have a case open and are trying to associate our case with any existing ones to raise the visibility. From our testing rolling back to Horizon Client 2012 has stopped the issue temporarily until we get a solution.
