No idea, sorry. But I experience similar problems and I may add some
When I start pd, I usually can type tilde characters. After switching to
another application and then back to Pd, I can't type tildes anymore in
Pd. And there seems to be no way to restore tilde-typing ability until I
restart Pd. Actually, it is not only the tilde character, but all
characters of the same key cannot be typed anymore (^,`,~). On a Swiss
German layout it is the key left of back space.
After the problem has been triggered, [keyname] still shows the correct
characters, while [key] only outputs 0 for ^, ` and ~.
This problem occurs only on one of two machines with similar setup:
#1: Ubuntu 14.04 i386, Pd 0.46.6 from git, Intel graphics driver
-> Problem can be triggered
#2: Ubuntu 14.04 i383, Pd 046.6 from git, Nvidia proprietary driver
-> Problem cannot be triggered
I mention graphics drivers specifically, because there were some reports
about Pd crashing X11 while typing in certain Ubuntu setups with Intel
drivers. Maybe this problem is related.
