Ah, well, I checked out the sources for this fine specimen. Oh man...
Then we have Debian guys adding their perls to keyboard handler:

++ if (inp.type != EV_KEY && inp.type != EV_REP)
++ return;

Obviously EV_SYN is completely useless message. And who cares about
keyboards with scroll wheels, volume sliders, etc, right?

This package either needs lots of love or it just needs to die...
