Description of problem:
I cannot focus the dictionnary applet entry by moving the mouse upon the entry
nor by clicking into it.
If i press Ctrl-Alt-Tab until the panel is focused then it's okay and i can fill
I think it's a bug in metacity sloppy focus behaviour, because if i use the
click-to-focus, the applet is rightly focused when clicking on it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add the dictionnary applet to a gnome-panel
2. Configure metacity not to use click-to-focus
3. Try to enter a word in the entry of the applet
Actual Results: keyboard event is sent to the focused window (which is not the
panel), and clicking in the entry doesnt help.
The same bug exists for Command Line applet.
I can confirm this same behaviour with command line applet.
This is a metacity bug - moving there ...
Mark: Did you actually move it? (If so, do you remember the bug
number so I can mark duplicates there?)
Also, this is a duplicate of bug 108674 in redhat bugzilla and bug
115072 in gnome bugzilla. This bug has since been fixed.
