I see a keyboard input problem on Manjaro update since Oct 22 update on my DELL Vostro 13 5310 laptop. When I try to open a text file with Gvim or VSCode, the cursor in editor window keeps inputting “enter” key, which causes scrolling down of edit window in GVim, or a lot of new lines entering in VSCode. It stops only when any key (ESC, enter, space, shift, whatever) is pressed.
The issue is so annoying to a programmer, that I can’t do my coding works anymore.
At first I was thinking it a hardware problem (key stuck maybe) until I noticed not all apps had this problem. I see Gvim and VSCode were heavily affected. Meanwhile, XEdit, Firefox (I have some web editors opened), Alacritty and gnome-terminal worked fine.
Thus I started thinking it might be software related. So, I tried to use Gnome on Xorg, and the problem was gone at all. Gvim and VSCode were back like my old friend. When I went back to Gnome Wayland, the same problem appeared again.
Is there any report on this issue? Or any guideline or suggestion to help debugging more?
