[FIXED] Keys stuck up or down in Minecraft
« on: February 20, 2013, 14:53:39 »
Occasionally, while playing Minecraft, I get keys stuck in either the "up" position or the "down" position.  I'm running 32-bit Java (1.7.13) with WinXP-SP3.

I can't find a consistent recipe for reproducing it, but it seems to often happen when mouse-clicks and keyboard events coincide.  I use autohotkey to feed in mouse clicks as fast as possible (hundreds per second) and then I just move around using the directional keys.

I've tried every version of LWJGL that I can find:
2.8.4: Keys stuck up, often.
2.8.5: Clicking clears the state of other keys like shift.
2.9.0 (nightly): Keys occasionally stuck up or down.

This problem has been reported to the Minecraft bug system.  They say they are waiting for a version of LWJGL that has it fixed. ( https://mojang.atlassian.net/browse/MC-886 )

Is there some way that I can gather more information about the state of LWJGL when I get into a situation where I'm holding a key down but Minecraft thinks I already released it?

Thanks for pointing me to that github issue tracker.  Is that where people should be reporting LWJGL issues?
