Caps/Num lock GDM/GDM3 on Squeeze
I recently decided to replace Lenny on my laptop with Squeeze. All went fine, but now with both GDM and GDM3, the Caps and Num locks come on when GDM starts, and behave erratically. I have to hit the caps/num lock key several times to disable the lock, and sometimes it will come on again after a random time. This behavior persists into my GNOME session. I'll be working on code and *&%#! -- on comes the caps/num locks.
Initially I thought this was an X issue. I uninstalled GDM3 (which is the version installed by squeeze) and logged in at the console then started X via startx. The caps and num locks remained off and behaved in the normal manner. I then tried SLiM, and again the keys behaved normally.
Then I tried GDM (2.20 in the squeeze repos), and it behaved the same as GDM3.
Even though I purged GDM3 and GDM, I'm wondering if there's some residual configuration data in my home directory, but I can't seem to find anything related.
Using SLiM isn't so bad, but once I log in I get asked to unlock the keyring, so typing my password twice to log gets annoying.
