Hey Jitsi team!
Thank you for your great communication software!
Unfortunately, I am experiencing the same freeze problem when I switch
keyboard layouts that has been reported before on the following occasions:
Every time a keyboard layout switching is being performed (Left Alt +
Shift), the Jitsi application hangs (not responding) and needs to be
terminated in Task Manager and started anew. This problem occurs regardless
of whether keyboard layout switching is performed in a contact's chat
window or in Jitsi's main window. Selecting a different change key sequence
(Ctrl + Shift, or Grave Accent) from "Region and Language" settings in
Windows Control Panel does not resolve the problem, and neither does
switching the keyboard layout from the Language Bar using the mouse.
The operating system is an up-to-date 32-bit Windows 7 SP1 with default
language support (no additional language support software installed). The
same problem is also experienced with Jitsi installed in a VM under Windows
XP SP3 (32-bit) on the same host machine. Both 2.4 stable and latest
nightly (2.5.5228) versions of Jitsi are affected by the problem.
It is quite frustrating, because I am used to switching keyboard layouts
constantly between english language (latin charset) and bulgarian language
(cyrillic charset), and even though I am aware of this problem and try to
avoid switching layouts, I frequently end up hanging the application by a
force of habit. I would appeciate it very much if you can investigate
further into this problem and if there is something I can help with, please
let me know. Thank you in advance!
