Hi, Sebastian,

     Please upgrade your kernel to the latest errata, or , at least to 
2.4.18-19.8.0.  The trouble is with Speakup.  http://linux-speakup.org/  I 
*believe* that RH has found a way to fix this.  I posted a request for 
non-English keyboard users to test this, but I didn't get a reply.  I 
would appreciate a message here or directly saying whether the problem is 
fixed.

          TIA.
