Curious of xnee, I installed it to try out too, I was hit by the same
error, launching in -v suggested the program was stopping after
"closing down while loop in async loop", I grepped for that in the
source and found it would exit after a variable (presumably the number
of events to record) would reach 0, this var being initialized to 100.
xnee --record --mouse --keyboard --future-clients --out rec.xnl \
you should have room for more events.
In general, keyboard and mouse record and replay worked fine here, but
I did not particularly configure xnee for special cases like compose
keys or meta keys, the biggest problem being that the documentation is
a bit confuse to me.
I think that this program is a bit low-level for the tests you might
want to achieve, and it exposes various problems to the test suite that
are not very interesting: it has to follow strict timings, and might
not be able to replay what you did as fast as you want it to.
I've found dogtail to be quite interesting, perhaps it is the good
layer for the integration of functional checks in your packages?
