That's what I'm hearing as well - it happens often enough on Roku stick to be a real problem. Maybe we need to have our app detect the device and disable the "long press" functionality if it's a stick...
In the code I'm working on now, i'm seeing this happening to me somewhat frequently on Roku 3 & Roku 4 to the point where it's becoming a quality issue. It's like the roku is busy doing something else and doesn't notice the user released the key, and then keeps scrolling forever until the user clicks something else. I wish there was a way to poll the current keystate (hey remote, are you *really* still being pressed?)
I rarely have the problem and use keypress logic extensively. What I do notice is more on the stick which I already mentioned and with the ROKU 4 and it's remote, especially when the battery is getting low (which is about every three to four weeks on mine). I stopped using the ROKU 4 remote altogether and took out the batteries. Rule of thumb - never buy the first release of anything. But other than that I have no real issues with keypress release

Does this help establishing the phenomenon exists?
(^) initially i recognized the remote as IR one because of the rubber direction keys with central OK (design before used only in IR remotes) and though how stupid of them to try and control teh stick with one - but then i looked up and seems "new" (?) packaging of sticks sports a RF remote with that design instead of the plastic rocker D-pad with OK underneath.
Basically the "My Movies" grid screen can get stuck infinitely scrolling, which is so weird because it seems to be a regular roGridScreen sub-type. There is no hidden remote. This all happened using the remote held, using left/right arrows made it stuck scrolling and repeat use of the arrows won't un-stuck it. The << / >> stop it but... only temporarily. It is a repeatable bug, not a one-off. WTF...
