Package: gnome
Version: 1:3.8+2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
Installed debian 7 on my w500 tablet and tried to sign in to gmail using my
it failed due to the N key output as n on the virtual keyboard
(after altering gdm settings to use gnome-shell no fall back mode via ssh)
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
tried other virtual keyboards and they worked allowing me to login okay but was
unable to kill matchbox-keyboard without resorting to the terminal to pkill
tried upgrading system to testing and that failed
   * What was the outcome of this action?
was able to login but the bug with the gnome virtual keyboard remains
also found that keys e,c and n sufer the same bug
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
uppercase E, C and N
not tried other distros with gnome3/shell to see if it has been fixed as I've
only just got the screen saver working and don't want to lose hours of
installation work
