Summary0002242: every other keystroke lost when using VNC
DescriptionEvery other keystroke is lost when using netsurf via VNC.

I've attached a patch which fixes the problem.
Steps To ReproduceI start netsurf-fb like this: "netsurf-fb -f vnc", I've tried connecting
with three VNC viewers: TightVNC, vinagre and novnc. In all three cases
netsurf is only responding to half of my keystrokes, if I type this into
any text box: 12345678, then the text that appears is 1357.
Additional InformationAlso reported this in the Debian BTS: https://bugs.debian.org/765880
