Description Ted Clark 2002-08-26 09:32:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020408 Description of problem: The sawfish window/root window menus stop working after a while. The Gnome panel Main Menu -> Extras -> Preferences -> Sawfish window manager menus continue to function. I have to kill and restart sawfish to get the menus working again. If I start sawfish from a terminal so that output goes to stderr I get the message "Error: Menu is already active" when I middle-click the desktop or right-click the close or minimize buttons on a window (crux theme). I am able to duplicate this problem without Gnome by starting sawfish from a $HOME/.Xclients file. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Use the sawfish root window menu and window menus for a while. 2. 3. Actual Results: After a while the menus stop working; the menu is not mapped, and the message "Error: Menu is already active" is sent to stderr. Expected Results: The menus should continue working for the duration of the session. Additional info:

More details: the sawfish-menu process somehow gets into an unkillable state, and has to be nuked with a "kill -9".
Comment 2 Bryan O'Sullivan 2002-12-10 00:56:19 EST
I forgot to mention in the earlier comment that killing the recalcitrant sawfish-menu process unwedges things. Unfortunately, killall doesn't find the process, so I have to use ps and kill manually. Ugh.

bos, try 'killall rep'
