Description Peter van Egdom 2003-03-02 23:22:42 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206

Description of problem:

Starting KSnapshot (/usr/bin/ksnapshot) from a GNOME session and saving the
picture results in GNOME becoming unresponsive to further mouse actions.

Only restarting X with <CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE> can bring the system back to a
running state (or perhaps by going to a virtual console and try some action
there, although I did not try that).

Programs like Konqueror and Kview do work when saving a file; KDE's
file-selector in these programs starts as expected, but the file-selector in
KSnapshot does not appear.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a GNOME session.
2. Start KSnapshot (/usr/bin/ksnapshot)
3. Save screenshot

Actual Results:  
 GNOME hangs and does not respond to further mouse clicks.

Expected Results: 
 KDE's file selector should appear.

Hmm, it works for me with fresh installed RHL 9.
