Package: acpid
Version: 1.0.10-4
Severity: important

After last update, setting brightness with fn+up and fn+down causes keycode 232 and 233 being continuously pressed and released (seen with xev), making system quite unusable.

Restarting  acpid   stops the problem until brightness is set again. The problem seems to be caused by last "update netlink patch to version 6", beacuse recompiling the package without it resolve the problem.
