In fact, the "strange messages" that this topic is about seem to only appear if assistive technologies is enabled...

so run:
Code: [Select]
xfce4-accessibility-settingsand on the "Assistive Technologies" tab, make sure there is NO tick in the box labelled "enable assistive technologies"
(or tick it, then untick it again)

Then reboot to test.



As an aside - On the "Mouse" tab, make sure "show location of pointer on keypress" IS ticked if you want the Alt+C (find mouse cursor) keybinding to work.

Still haven't seen any strangeness here, but I looked, and no boxes are checked - so, that must be it...
