I was giving you a way to prove that it is either LFS causing it or the keyboard itself. Sounds like you got an old stuck key that's all. But you can prove it by opening notepad when it occurs again.

You asked if it was an LFS bug, just providing a way to help you answer that yourself. I doubt it is LFS is doing that though.
:doctor:


edit:
Notice if you open notepad right now and you hold down "W" then you get a bunch of 'wwwwwwwwww"s. If you tap another key then the 'w's stop in notepad. Anotehr key can interupt note pad seeing the 'w ' key being depressed. I don;t think this happens in LFS. For example you can hold up to 3 keys at once, and they all work, and tapping other keys don't interupt anything.

Might be harder than I thought to test it in note pad seeing that that operates differently to LFS or a game for tha matter.

Perhapse try another keyboard for a little while, see if it keeps happening. I f you can;t get another KB to test with even try a different key other than "W" for a little while.

I really serioulsy doubt LFS is making the "W" key sick down because of a bug. I think dozens of other people would have reported this. Most people own a keyboard.

I didn't think you sounded rude at all. I just wanted to clarify what I said, turns out it's not a good test anyway.
