[Qemu-devel] [Bug 1738283] Re: 'Less than' (<), 'more than' (>), and 'pipe' (|) can't be typed via VNC

Indeed the bug does not exist in this exact form any more, but it seems
the stray '86' keymap entry *does* still cause problems in current qemu
in one specific case:
basically, if using 'usb-kbd', we still get trouble when openQA (os-
autoinst) tries to type a '<' character, because it does this:
(note it does *not* do shift down, comma down, comma up, shift up), and
qemu gets confused and converts that into this sequence of
and that seems to mess with the key state and cause any subsequent
attempts to type a '<' to go wrong.
Removing the '86' key definition avoids the bug.

'Less than' (<), 'more than' (>), and 'pipe' (|) can't be typed via
Status in QEMU:
If I start QEMU 2.11 (from
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/Virtualization/qemu) VM with
VNC, I am unable to type following three characters: 'less than' (<),
'more than' (>), and 'pipe' (|) on en_US QWERTY keyboard. Other
characters work fine. QEMu version 2.10.1 worked fine.
/usr/bin/qemu-kvm -m 2048 -cpu kvm64 -drive
minimal-20171031.iso -device ide-cd,drive=cd0 -boot once=d,menu=on
,splash-time=5000 -device usb-ehci -device usb-tablet -smp 1 -enable-
kvm -vnc :91,share=force-shared
The ISO can be downloaded here: https://www.openindiana.org/download/
Also tried Fedora-Server-dvd-x86_64-25-1.3.iso and it's the same
If I run the same command without '-vnc :91,share=force-shared',
everything works just fine.
