    clutter/evdev: Dispatch libinput before generating key repeat events · 1597b357
    Rui Matos authored
    Since both the libinput event source and the key repeat timer have the
    same priority, the order in which both handlers are called is
    arbitrary if both sources are ready on the same poll return. This
    means that sometimes we generate key repeats when there's already a
    real key event queued on libinput that would cancel the repeat timer
    if only it was processed before.
    
    One solution would be lowering the repeat timer source priority a
    notch lower than the libinput source but that would mean that a steady
    stream of events from libinput (e.g. pointer device motion) would
    prevent any key repeats to happen.
    
    Instead, we can fix this problem by trying to dispatch libinput from
    the key repeat timer and checking if the timer source has been
    destroyed before generating more key repeats.
