I had input "glitches" during the last few weeks where some input
apparently got stuck in the X server. This might be one incarnation. It
seemed to happen after a dist-upgrade.

Short answer: No, they all suck. Learn to deal with it, keep backups and
choose the one that you find sucks the least.

I think it's a special version of the three component dilemma: Secure,
solid, stable: choose two (stable counts as two). Although, I'd say
"secure, stable, useable" is a better fit.

Got Backup?
