GNOME keyboard repeat stroke- and gDesklet Starterbar trouble

Today after the regualy update of my Debian unstable desktop a had some serious problems with my keyboard in gnome :( When holding down a key the stroke wasn’t repeated. Very annoying when using arrow keys (in console mode).

After a little research I found out that even though the new packages introduced this crappy thing the problem wasn’t within the new packages but instead in my configuration i my home-dir.

I used more that a hour to locate the exact configration file:

~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard

Most of the time was used googleing for an answer but after a while I decided to try figure out the problem myself and I eventually found the file above.

Another bad thing about my update was that the gdesklet package introduced a broken starterbar. After some research I found out that I now needed the python-xdg package to run… I have made a bug report in this.

Update: - It seems that it wasn’t a bug after all… just my reading skills ;)
