I believe you (and Keith who got me thinking about daemons) have finally 
solved this longstanding problem. Actually, I had not found the 
preference so I removed the at-spi package altogether. Now that I have 
found the preference, I may try reinstalling the package but disabling 
the feature, which is what you were suggesting. I wanted to make sure 
there was no way that daemon would run. So now we have a new question: 
What exactly does the "assistive technologies" daemon do, and why does is 
it so poisonous to pan? I guess that was 2 questions. I know that the 
reason I had this was so that I could run GOK (GNOME On-screen Keyboard) 
which I was only using so I could see foreign keyboard layouts, which can 
now be done in other ways. When I removed at-spi, it forced removal of 
GOK. Maybe when this is on, the event loop has to check constantly to see 
whether one of the virtual keys has been pressed and if so, generate a 
keypress event. Anyway, I really think there's hope now that someone will 
come up with a full explanation.
