Description Kevin L. Mitchell 2001-08-07 22:04:02 EDT
Description of Problem: I have windows of a certain name set up to be sticky by default. They aren't. The toggle in sawfish shows that they're supposed to be sticky, but if I switch to another viewport, the window does not follow. If I toggle sticky off and back on, the windows are present on all viewports, as they should be. How Reproducible: Select a window, say, an xterm. Pull up the window menu and go to "Toggle," then select "sticky" to make the window sticky. Pull up the window menu again and go to "History" and select "Remember attributes." Then start up another such window and switch view ports, and watch the original window come along for the ride...but the new window be left behind. This is 100% reproducible on my system (with all updates applied).

It seems to work for me. Can you duplicate it with a gnome-terminal or something?

My apologies for taking so long to get back on this. I upgraded to RedHat 7.2 in the meantime, hoping that the bug would be fixed. It is not. I can reproduce this behavior with any X window, including Gnome terminal--and yes, I have all the updates. Once again, the failure mode can be replicated in this fashion: 1) Start up a program that displays a window, such as xterm or gnome-terminal. 2) Go to the window manager menu, select "Toggle," then select "Sticky" to make the window sticky. 3) Go to the window manager menu, select "History," then select "Remember Attributes." 4) Start up another instance of the same program. Switch screens. Note that the original window will come along for the ride, but the new window will not. Switch back to the original screen and select "Toggle" from the window manager menu and note that "Sticky" is indeed selected, even though the window does not display "Sticky" behavior. 5) Select "Toggle" from the window manager menu on the new window and turn "Sticky" off. Then do it again to turn "Sticky" back on. Now the window will indeed come along for the ride when you switch screens. Need any configuration info from me?
