Description Mike 2003-12-20 16:12:25 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Gecko/20031114

Description of problem:
display <some image_name>

click on the image to bring up the "commands" menu
select "Miscellany"
select "Preferences"
select "Display image on a centered background"
select "Apply"
Image will re-draw
right click image to bring up "shortcuts" menu
select Image Info

At this point I see an hour glass that never goes away. I cannot bring 
up the task bar or <alt>-tab to any other application that's running.  
I have to <ctrl>-<alt>-F1 to a console window, login and issue a kill 
command to kill the "display" process.

======================

Note: you'll have to edit "~/.displayrc"  file to set:

display.backdrop: False

to reverse the actions above.

======================

I've had other's confirm this problem and some commentary can be found
in the archives of the Fedora Core E-mail list under the subject heading:

Request for verification of Bug in ImageMagick.
