Hello,

If the system is under heavy load, and/or Emacs is compiled with debug
options which substantially slow it down, and fido-mode is enabled, then
typing quickly into the minibuffer can result in typed characters
inserted more than once.  Here is how I can reproduce it:

    emacs -Q
    M-x fido-mode RET
    C-h v

and quickly try to type "font-weight-table".  This is what I get in the
minibuffer:

    font-weweweweweweweight-tatabe

Although I made at least one typo (I didn't type the 'l'), I definitely
did not type 'we' and 'ta' that many times.

I haven't been able to reproduce with icomplete-mode, but as the problem
does not occur consistently, I am not confident it does not occur with
icomplete-mode.

It occurred to me to try --with-x-toolkit=lucid instead of --with-pgtk.
Sure enough, I cannot reproduce the bug.  So I think the problem is
something about how pgtk receives and processes keyboard input.

In summary: I can reproduce with pgtk running as a native Wayland
application, and I cannot reproduce with the Lucid build running under
Xwayland.  In both cases, swaywm.  I have retitled the bug.

Thanks.

Thanks, Sean, that's very good investigation and I'll admit induces
a "phew" on my part ;-)

And yes, I'm pretty sure this will happen with icomplete-mode as
well.

You forgot to test the following combinations:

  --with-x-toolkit=gtk3, x-gtk-use-native-input set to nil
  --with-x-toolkit=gtk3, x-gtk-use-native-input set to t
  --with-pgtk, GDK_BACKEND=x11

Could you please try all three setups and see which of those the
problem exists in?

Thanks in advance.

Cannot reproduce.  I did try both, but I can't find any mention of
x-gtk-use-native-input in the Emacs source code -- is it possible you
meant a similarly-named variable?

>   --with-pgtk, GDK_BACKEND=x11

Can reproduce, but it happens less often, i.e., you have to load up the
system further and type faster to reproduce :)

It's a relatively new feature, you should update from master and test
again.

Thanks, I will look into this, but please also update and test native
input.

Ah, sorry.  Now done.  Cannot reproduce in either case.

In the latter case I had to kill fcitx5 before I could type into Emacs.
So I thought I'd also test pgtk with and without GDK_BACKEND=x11 without
fcitx5 running.  I could reproduce in both cases.
