Well, it's not you and it's not Debian. I'm seeing the same under
Fedora. I believe this problem arrived with vim 7. I am now on Fedora
7.2 and this problem is definitely there. I don't know what is causing
it or how to cure it. It is very annoying, needless to say.
I can describe it a bit more precisely, I think.
* The first char typed on a line will echo just that char.
* The second, and every subsequent, char will attempt to pronounce
* the two chars or read them out separately. For instance, if the
* first char is an 'a', Speakup will say a. If the second char is
* a 'd', Speakup will say 'ad'. If the first is a 'b' and the
* second a 'd', Speakup says 'bd'.
