Ok, I'll give the proprietary driver a try to save some patience.

But, uhm, *cough*, why are keystrokes executed twice depending on
execution time of screen? The non-engeneer might expect that one key
press event should result in one or none reaction of the gui, but never
two. Feels like honey in the keyboard. Sharp tounged aliens might
possibly call it a bug.
