From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1)
Description of problem:
If user checks the box "Select windows when the mouse moves over them"
from within gnome-window-property, the user can no longer raise the
selected window by clicking on it (except if they click on the title bar).
The expected behavior would be that the window is raised when
left-clicking on any place within the window. RHL9 and RHEL2.1
function correctly, RHEL3 and fedora do not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.check box "Select windows when the mouse moves over them"
3. click in middle of a window that is partially covered by another
Actual Results: Nothing.
Expected Results: Window that is clicked on is raised.
Having the same problem with fedora 1 with all updates. You can click
on any window decoration and it works, but if you click in the window
itself it will not raise.
This is the same as bug number 115027 on Gnome bugzilla.
(http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115072). This should
probably be resolved as fixed upstream, after applying the patch.
Note that this bug also disables selecting of desktop icons and any
applets on the panel that require typing (such as a dictionary
applet), so it's not just a preference about raise-on-click.
