Description of problem:
Sometimes the K menu in KDE hangs in the open state and blocks all
mouse clicks. Pressing 'Esc' or 'Alt' is the only way to close the
menu. The K menu and right-clicked context menus in the panel are
affected. Window menus and context menus for other applications are
This bug was initially reported as a kde-specific bug. Someone seems
to have traced the problem to a patch for qt3.2.3 that needs to be applied
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the K Menu
2. Navigate through the menu, clicking around on sub-menus
3. Frequently, the menu will freeze up and all further mouse clicks
will not be recognized.
4. Press alt or esc on the keyboard to release.
This happens approx. 90% of the time I use the menu.
I also have this behaviour. This additional behaviour is also observed:
Mouse clicks on taskbar do not always respond first time.
If I use the window bars in the taskbar to switch between windows,
sporadically the mouse clicks on the icons are either ignored, or else
the bar becomes activated, but the window is not brought forward. If I
keep clicking the window is eventually activated.
I installed qt 3.3 from source to test it out but I don't think it
fixed this issue. I can't find any information about the apparent
patch that has been applied to the mandrake rpms.
it's a know issue and was fixed in qt CVS. The qt-3.3.0 has this fix.
I don't see this problem anymore with qt-3.3.0
I see this problem, KDE 3.2.2-0.1 and qt-3.3.1-0.2. Closing klipper
seems to make it go away.
