That sounds like the system isn't receiving keyup events, for some reason.

Keyboard jogging should only go as far as the axis limits, but that is not much of a safety net if you are jogging Z down.

FWIW I don't trust USB / GUI for jogging any of my machines. It's much more dependable to jog via HAL pins, for example with an MPG.
I have never seen the problems you have, but I am aware of the possibility.

I'm in the same boat as you, I prefer true tactile feedback and already have a project box that I'm going to be building an operator panel from for this machine. I actually wouldn't mind just removing the software jogs and cycle buttons entirely for this build. Maybe I'll have to work on my own gui :lol:

I have posted the src file for a new hal_pi_gpio that has
inputs, inverted input
outputs, inverted outptus reset outputs ( allowing double step for rpi opi bpi )

this forum is hard to follow so i have not ( this morning ) found where i posted it .
so, here it is again
the 'easy' way to build it
is to do it in a RIP
cd yourRIPdir
. scripts/rip-environment
( yes thats DOT SPACE before the 's' )

find your old hal_pi_gpio.c file
remove it from 'that place'
store it away for safety
then put my new hal_pi_gpio.c file in 'that place'
then 'touch' it to isure it's 'new' and will be compiled
touch hal_pi_gpio.c
go back down to the src dir
sudo make modules

its only a few seconds to finsih

now use it
in a hal file
loadrt hal_pi_gpio pi_pins=\

that makes pin 3 an ouput with initial value 0 and is resetable
and make pin 5 and output with initial value 1 and not resetable.
and makes pin 11 and input with and additional inverted pin ( th x is just a place holder for nice columns of print )

read the code to see more
some of the pin 'features' are enabled with these {...} sets
so the feature still needs to be turned on
loadrt hal_pi_gpio pi_pins={40,>,1,Y}
will creare a resettable pin
BUT you need to say
setp hal_pi_gpip.pin-40-out-reset 1
to turn on the feature
