0001996: Key Presses twice on embark screen and in fortress inventory
When trying to move a single square on the embark screen, a single key press will move two squares instead of one.

When there are a large number of stones in the fortress item inventory, a single key press to scroll to the rocks section will (if there are a large number of stones) be registered as two key presses, making it impossible to select stones from the fortress inventory.

These two errors seem to be the same bug related to how key presses are registered when the game lags due to performing a lagy operation.
No tags attached.

I dont think this is a bug. You can modify the microseconds for key presses in the Init option, for it being registered twice.

I used to get it a lot when shifting through Z levels.

As for it skipping over the Rock stock menu, for myself that has always been a Zen thing. I go to the stone stock menu and wait. The key pressing gets que when the stone stock menu is loading. This doesn't strike me as a bug, as that how it operates on the other stock menu screens, and you'll probably face the issue if you got any of the other stock screen to be as large as the stone screen.

The problem with the Stones category in Stocks was already reported as 0001920.

Is this fixed in 31.06?

I no longer get this behavior in 31.06, so it appears to be fixed.
