There is one downside. I'm not sure whether that patch was the culprit.
My Thunderbird is jerky when scrolling and lags while writing this
message. The letters sometimes appear later than typed and in groups. Like
I (kbd): My Thunder
TB: My Thunder
I (kbd): b-i-r-d
TB: is silent
I (kbd): still typing...
TB: bird is

Perhaps it's not only TB.
