From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020 Firefox/0.10.1 Description of problem: When I captured the screen shot of a single window, two shadows of the GIMP's windows appeared on the captured image. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gimp-2.0.5-5 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start GIMP. 2. Set the target window to overlap with GIMP's windows. 3. Open "Screen Shot..." dialog. 4. Check "a Single Window" option and set "Select Window After" 0 second. 5. Click the target window. Actual Results: Shadows of the GIMP's windows appear on the captured image. Expected Results: Whole of the image of the selected window is able to be captured even it is hidden by GIMP's ones. Additional info: GIMP's packages: gimp-2.0.5-5 gimp-gap-2.0.2-2 gimp-print-4.2.7-2 gimp-print-4.2.7-1 gimp-data-extras-1.2.0-12 gimp-print-utils-4.2.7-2 gimp-print-plugin-4.2.7-1 gimp-help-2-0.1.0.3 xsane-gimp-0.92-13 gimp-print-plugin-4.2.7-2 gimp-print-utils-4.2.7-1 x-org's version is 6.8.1-12.

The problem you see lies in the method how GIMP acquires the screenshots (under X11 anyway), to change this would require substantial efforts. I'll close this UPSTREAM, as the bug is known there as well: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144788 As I understand it, there are two ways to wrkaround the issue: - Ensure that the target window isn't obscured by the GIMP's windows. If necessary use a suitable delay to hide the GIMP's windows in the meantime. - I'm not so sure about that one (whether it works on all graphics cards): Enable backing store (option "-bs" when running the X server), then it will at least show the contents of the obscuring windows instead of some random garbage from the obscured window.
