ADBReInit on the SE with System 4.1: Don't Call It


Because of a bug (which causes auto-repeat) in the ROM version of the Macintosh SE keyboard driver, a patch was placed in System 4.1. If ADBReInit is called, the ROM version of the keyboard driver will be reloaded, and the RAM version of the driver with the patches will not be used. Therefore, it is recommended that ADBReInit not be called on the Macintosh SE until the problem is fixed. (There is no need to call ADBReInit.) This problem will not occur with the Macintosh II ROM version of the keyboard driver.
