edimax keyboard/VGA/mouse switch: only usable if you are fast typist

...and if you are not using emacs.

So what happens? This broken thing automatically sends "release all keys" event one second after you release _any_ key. So if you hold down shift and start typing, LETTERS COME OUT ALL CAPS, unless you pause for a second in typing, when it sends you bogus shift release event and you continue with small letters.

The same thing happens with control, and makes emacs unusable :-(.
