Rarely when clicking left mouse button it gets stuck in pressed state (its like a MOUSE_DOWN event happened, but never a corresponding MOUSE_UP event). Happens on my main PC and multiple different laptops on builtin pointing device.

Additional info:
* xorg-server 1.19.6
* xf86-input-libinput 2.10.6-1

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start X
2. Click left mouse button.
This task depends upon

Currently in the repository:
xf86-input-libinput 0.28.0-1 (xorg-drivers)
xorg-server 1.20.0-9 (xorg)

Do you really use Arch Linux?

Sorry. I first thought about xf86-input-evdev package, but then compared packages between machines and the only common package is xf86-input-libinput. Actual version on my pc is 0.27.1-1.

Version 0.28.0-1 reproducibly freezes the login screen of lightdm, lxdm, gdm and all other window managers. Neithe rmouse nor keybord work. Keyboard works in the console and I can ssh into the system, but no graphical input. I downgraded to 0.27.1-1, and everything works fine again. This is on the 64 bit version of Arch Linux. This is a severe bug !
