Volume knob rapid press/release problem


When ever I rotate my volume knob counter-clockwise, it manages to lower the volume, but it keeps lowering it until the volume is 0. xev later showed me that one notch would cause the 174 button to continuously be pressed and released until I hit some other button, like the spacebar, to stop it. Although it provides a nifty fade effect, I'd like to decrease the volume by a single increment.

KeyRelease event, serial 24, synthetic NO, window 0x1000001,
root 0x76, subw 0x0, time 2998136824, (660,421), root661,434),
state 0x0, keycode 174 (keysym 0x1008ff11, XF86AudioLowerVolume), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False

Any ideas?

Are you using KDE?
Provide more info about system, distro, kernel, gui info.

I'm using slackware 12.0 with fluxbox
uname -a
Linux Blitzkrieg 2.6.21.5-smp #2 SMP Tue Jun 19 14:58:11 CDT 2007 i686 Genuine Intel(R) CPU T2050 @ 1.60GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

I don't have any kde libraries installed but gtk is present. Usually just use the terminal, not too many guis. Keyboard is a Firefly Borealis.

I figure it might be a bug related to KDE. That is the only thing I know about a possible fix. Not used fluxbox much to fully understand it. Good luck on resolving the issue. If you get a fix be sure to post back.
