My keyboard skips one or two characters, whenever I stop typing for 5 seconds or more. Since I just installed 11.3 openSUSE, I don't know if this issue is an improper configuration, a bug in 11.3, or my keyboard failing. It doesn't matter what application I am running, or what keys are pressed.
Keyboard failure doesn't seem likely. I cannot find anything in either yast or personal preferences that might fix it. Thus, I suspect something in SUSE, maybe the keyboard driver.
It is very annoying, having to kkey first characters twice after pausing.
