I can reproduce this here.


1. Press Shift+NumLock to turn on MouseKeys.
2. Hold down arrow on numeric keypad. Pointer moves slowly.
3. Start a bare X server on another vt:
        $ Xorg :1
4. In the new, bare X server: press Shift+NumLock to turn on MouseKeys.
5. Hold down arrow on numeric keypad. Pointer accelerates (as it
6. Run gnome-settings-daemon in the bare X server:
        $ DISPLAY=:1 gnome-settings-daemon
7. Switching back to the new X server, try MouseKeys again.
8. Pointer moves slowly and does not accelerate.
