Hmmm... Odd function key bug?
Powerbook 5,8 running MorphOS 3,8. set to British keyboard.
Fx keys (F1, F2, etc) operate as if the Fn key was held, toggling to normal use when the Fn key is actually held.
Symptoms: F5 doesn't refresh page on Odyssey, but does adjust volume slider*. Fn + F5 refreshes page on Odyssey.
(* F5 doubles as 'increase volume' key on Powerbook.)
Other Fx keys are similarly transposed, reverting to normal when Fn is held.
Numerical keypad keys (u,i,o,j,k,l) operate as normal, (ie they return numbers when Fn is held, and operate as normal letters when the Fn key is not held) so it's not as simple as 'Fn is toggled to on.'
Can anyone else confirm this?
This has survived rebooting.
