What do you mean? The hotkeys plugin in versions 0.9.x and 1.0.x runs a thread 
that simply loops on a condition variable waiting for a key press event.

It's perfectly normal for it to stay put for extended period of times - as 
long as you don't press any key while a video widget has focus.

In 1.1, there is no hotkeys thread anymore. Key presses are processed 
synchronously instead.
