Unable to change weapons

linux, Ubuntu Feisty, a self-compiled 1.9.0beta5.2

Playing the first level of Eternal Doom, I am unable to switch weapons. I mean 1) any weapons I obtain during playing, and 2) any weapons gained by i-d-f-a.

"Show ASCII codes of pressed keys" seems to work. Every key appears in the console, and there is nothing unexpected. I use keypad to move, and keypad produces codes different from the keyboard's numbers.

Setting s for shotgun, f for fists or p for pistol does not work. The "setup controls" menu accepts and saves my choices. But, back in the game, I can press the keys as many times as I want, and nothing happens.

Once what happened was that pressing 3 on keyboard made me slowly move forward, and putting 7 down on the keyboard made my pistol fire after a slight delay. One key made me strafe, and there were actually multiple keys that made me fire, but always after a delay. These changed a bit while I tried them out. I mean, for a while, the game did random things from the numbers on the keyboard. Keypad continued to function as expected. But after a while (a couple of minutes in the 1st level, space station, of Eternal Doom) this stopped, and after that the numbers did nothing.

Back to linux's console, all keys worked as expected. I have a wired keyboard, so this can't be about transmission or battery problems of a wireless kbd.

This has nothing to do with Eternal Doom. I tried plain Doom2, and encountered the same problem.

This seems to be a duplicate of #1809223.
