    Default vmware issue with keyboard

    when i start vmware my issue is that when i make any type of key press it duplicates it
    for example if type: startx

    it shows ssstarrrrttttxxxxxxx

    i try to compensate with using kdbrate -r 20 -d 500 but it doesn't always work any suggestions

    Follow the part (by pureh@te) to stop the process and then see if it works better. Then report back.
