Your message with subj: Keyboard polling a bit slow

I don't think this is a keyboard polling but the result of the refreshing=
algorithm. Read kdebase/konsole/konsole/TEmulation.cpp for an explanation
change "#define BULK_TIMEOUT" and recompile to speed up refreshing rate.

has caused the attached bug report to be marked as done.

This means that you claim that the problem has been dealt with.
If this is not the case it is now your responsibility to reopen the
bug report if necessary, and/or fix the problem forthwith.

(NB: If you are a system administrator and have no idea what I'm

somewhere.  Please contact me immediately.)

Hi there,

I'm running XFree4.0 with a rather fast keyboard repeat rate ("xset r rate 170 70").   This
produces about 70 characters a second, which means that if I'm scrolling up and down in
less or whatever, it does so almost in sync with the monitor :-)

This isn't the case in konsole - if I hold down a key, it prints about 20 chars at a time,
almost as though you're polling the keyboard every 20th of a second or something!

Unless there's some hardcore reason that konsole can't be optimised, is it possible that 
this could be sped up a bit?
