I have a computer with Fedora 16 and KDE. It's connected through a KVM switch to a monitor with another computer, and the switch uses Scroll Lock + Scroll Lock to switch between the computers.

The problem is that for some reason the Scroll Lock button doesn't work on Fedora/KDE. Num Lock and Caps Lock work. The command xset q says that it's off, and xset led named "Scroll Lock" does turn it on, but I can't "double-click".

How can I check why the button isn't working and resolve the problem? I have looked everywhere and haven't found anyone with this specific problem.
