[Techtalk] An interesting little problem

Hi All,

A weird problem has just arisen in this install of Claws-mail, v.
3.7.1, running on Mandriva 2009 - it's only arisen in the last couple
of days, and I hope someone has some clues for me!

The w key is not producing any input when composing messages (I have
to go back, put caps lock on, and press shift-W to get the letter -
shifted-W works fine, it's just the lower case that's gone missing).
It's only happening in Claws; it's fine in a terminal, in Kate the
editor, in Joe, in OpenOffice... just Claws. And it's only the W.

Claws is a GTK+ program, and I'm running KDE4(.1something); could it
be something in my GTK setup that's causing this? I'm at a loss,
because I've been using Claws in a KDE environment since early KDE3,
and had no problems...
