Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1021548
opening session menu breaks panel autohide function
Last modified: 2013-11-10 02:08:22 EST
Description of problem: When the panel's autohide feature is enabled, and a user opens the session menu, the autohide function stops working. xfce4-panel -r is then needed to enable autohiding again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.10.1 (Release: 1.fc19)
When reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enable autohiding on the panel.
2.Open the session menu.
3.Click the desktop.
Actual results: The panel does not autohide anymore. Only xfce4-panel -r temporarily works around the problem.
Expected results: The panel hides automatically and no longer requires xfce-panel -r to work around the problem.
This bug has already been reported and fixed upstream. However, the patch has not yet been included in an official xfce release, nor in fedora 19 (32 bit). See:
Can you test this scratch build and see if the issue is fixed in it:
I just tested the scratch build and it worked. Both after opening the session menu and clicking the desktop and after recovery from a suspended session, the panel kept autohiding. So it works for me! Thanks!
