fedora 26 very strange keyboard bug

Hello everyone, I have been testing fedora 26 workstation since first alpha release. Everything works, and I know that I should avoid to use it in production envinronment, but i don't care. Too much interested in newer versions to drop the opportunity just for one or two bugs. But yesterday something really misterious appened with my keyboard after the sudo dnf update. 10-15 seconds after boot the keyboard go nuts, refusing any input at all, and with scroll lock led on. If I disconnect it and reconnect, it works as usual for the same 10-15 second, and then boom! Scroll lock again. The keyboard model is a Logitech G110, and i'm wondering if that strange issue has something to do with some newer mod inside the kernel that should support backlight ( the keyboard have backlight) or something like that. I'm making a small video to show the strange scenario, cause if I plug in soe other keyboard and start typing with it, if I press num lock I can unlock the G110 for another 10 sec. Also dmesg show nothing new or inusual, and this "10 second keyboard death timer" is really annoing me. Now I'm writing from the same keyboard, on the same machine, on fedora 25, no problems at all. I need little help or advices to how to debug it or give more useful information for dev team, I don't know where to find the related logs, and usually i look at dmesg to see what has crashed, but it didn't help. Thank you very much for reading, hope to find a solution or at least properly submit a bug to the mantainer of the related not-working package.

Best regards, Sergio Martinelli

All pre-release issues should better be reported and discussed on the Fedora devel mailing list

I don't have an answer for you, but similar (thought not exact) things have happened to my HP ZBook laptop keyboard. See
