Description louisgtwo 2003-10-14 06:43:17 UTC
I believe gtk+ has a bug which causes notification area icons to be one pixel
wide when under load. the rhn-applet just fixed this issue and wondering if gaim
could incorporate that fix also.

I use gaim's system tray icon so when I log in and out gaim logs in
automatically. Fairly often the tray icon is only one pixel wide when loging in.

Do you have a patch?  I've never seen this happen.

Still can't reproduce here.  Tried loading and unloading the plugin multiple times.

Comment 5 louisgtwo 2003-10-16 18:21:16 UTC
I don't think you can produce the bug that way. It only happens right after
login. Leave gaim and the plugin running. Log out and save session. When login
back in gaim should be running. This is when the plugin gets messed up. If you
can contact Daniel Veillard <veillard@redhat.com> he fixed the same problem in

DV, any ideas?

Comment 9 Daniel Veillard 2003-10-17 08:45:55 UTC
The eggtrayicon.[ch] is not part of the GNOME libraries APIs, it's
copied in all client code. This is a maintainance nightmare, blame
Havoc :-) !
To fix the problem I updated the module to the latest version from
the libegg CVS and applied a patch from Owen when he managed to
reproduce and debug the problem.
The new versions of the module are attached, hopefully you can generate
a simple patch from the existing version of eggtrayicon.[ch] from
Gaim. Then push it back upstream, I dunno if Owen fixed it in libegg
CVS ...

I dropped this file into a build if people want to test:


let me know if you find any problems.  The patch didn't seem too scary, except
for some DV-specific stuff at the top. :)

This is in the tree now, so I'm hoping it's fixed.
