Description Warren Togami 2003-09-12 04:53:56 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703

Description of problem:
kinput2 mysteriously becomes inoperative if you click on a character choice
within the Candidate Selection dialog after you have dragged that dialog window.
 If you never click & drag the Candidate Selection dialog, it works fine.  

Unfortunately due to the annoying problems of gtk2 apps like Bug 84860 and Bug
84859 where the candidate selection window appears below the bottom left of the
window rather than under the text input, it is guaranteed that the user will
click & drag the kinput2 Candidate Selection dialog, triggering this bug.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

2. nihongo
4. Click and move Candidate Selection window anywhere.
5. Click on 日本語  (the far left choice)

Actual Results:  
kinput2 seems to no longer respond.  Western character input continues to work
in gedit, but within Mozilla keyboard input behaves strangely and unable to
enter western characters.

Expected Results:  
It should not render kinput2 inoperative.

It looks like similar bug with Bug#78017. and I can't reproduce this except gtk2
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2004-01-28 05:14:59 EST
Hmm, this sometimes causes kinput2 to fail totally and consume 100%
CPU.  Sometimes it fails completely only after several tries only in
that individual application, and subsequently works again if you
restart that application (like gedit).
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2004-01-28 05:24:04 EST
When it got stuck at 100% CPU usage, strace kept repeating this in a
seemingly infinite loop:

--- SIGPIPE (Broken pipe) @ 0 (0) ---
select(6, [4 5], [], [], {0, 0})        = -1 EBADF (Bad file descriptor)
getuid32()                              = 500
geteuid32()                             = 500

kill failed to kill it.  It took kill -9 to stop it.
Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2004-01-29 02:55:12 EST
I suspect it's maybe another bug but it's just triggered by this.
Could you please submit it as another bug and mention the sure way to
reproduce the problem?
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2004-02-03 19:23:26 EST
Yes, I think the 100% CPU usage and kill -9 problem is a separate bug.
 Maybe Bug #114886.
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2004-10-21 06:38:03 EDT
This is no longer imperative for FC3/RHEL4 as IIIMF is the preferred
input method.  Please verify that this is not an issue for RHEL3
Comment 7 Leon Ho 2006-10-11 00:54:44 EDT
WONTFIX in RHEL3 Updates.
