Description of problem:
When the gnome-panel unhides (either automatically or manually), all
the drawers open and remain open. Moreover, if the panel is set to
autohide, an attempt to click on an icon in the drawer is impossible
because the panel disappears while attempting to position the mouse
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a drawer and place a launcher in it.
2.Hide the panel (manually or via autohide).
3.Unhide the panel and the drawers will open.
4.In autohide mode, unhide the panel, put the mouse over the launcher
icon and observe that the panel hides itself again.
Actual Results: The drawers open when they should not, and the panel
hides when it should not.
Expected Results: The drawers should only open when explicitly opened.
The launcher icon in the drawer should remain visible when the user
attempts to click on it.
Is already fixed upstream.
See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124794 and other
duplicate and re-scope bugs.
Please reopen so the patch can be applied and taken through testing.
This is being tracked by Gnome bug #121382. I wanted to close this as
a duplicate, but that is a different bugzilla. I will go ahead and
Thanks. I was thinking of bundling some upstream patches and see if
they can go into testing.
