Description P Jones 2003-11-17 14:31:06 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ja-JP; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
I set up gdm to accept xdmcp requests and started XNest as this "Xnest
:3 -query".
When it came up, it came up properly, but the mouse wouldn't work (it
did not adversly affect the :0 server's mouse, only :3)... I would
click on things, and they not get focus and the buttons wouldn't get
the event.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install XNest
2. run gdmconfig and turn on XDMCP
3. run XNest

Fedora Core 1 isn't available for ia64, so I'm not sure how you
are using it on ia64.  However, if you have built your own ISO
images from rawhide, or rebuilt it, that isn't Fedora Core.

Your bug report does not contain enough detailed information to
be able to do anything about the problem.  This could very well
just be a configuration problem of some kind on your end.

You need to provide completely detailed information with exact 100%
configuration of everything, what _specific_ application is being
used, etc. for me to even be able to make an assessment or advise
what to do next.

Er, don't know how I selected ia64. Sorry about that.

The problem begins on the GDM login screen, and if you login in, Gnome
panal launchers have the problem too.

On futher investigation, it looks like it might be some sort of off by
one bug in an event queue somewhere.  When I click on the desktop, it
*seems* as if the previous click is just then delivered, but when I
double click on something, like a Gnome-Term's title bar, it sometimes
get's "Trapped" there and where ever I click, it goes to that title
bar  ( and I can't seem to be able to drag the window anywhere).

Just for S&G, I ran Xvnc -query localhost, and it acted normal"
