Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-04-12 14:01:19 EDT
Description of problem:

A bug discussed quite extensively at:
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122086
is still present.  It does not affect metacity, which likely
ignores those messages, but other window managers conforming
to EWMH standard are messed up.

A patch referenced in the quoted discussion, i.e.
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=21124&action=view
still applies and resolves the issue.

For a convenience attached is the same patch rediffed against
libwnck-2.6.0.1 sources but the only change is in diff headers.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libwnck-2.6.0.1-1

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put into ~/.sawish/rc a line like
   (set-number-of-workspaces 4)
2. Start sawfish; if running metacity wm you can do that by
   typing in a terminal window

    killall metacity && sawfish &

3. Make sure that you have some windows open in some workspaces
   and start mousing around in "Workspace Switcher" on a gnome-panel. 
   You will be screwed in no time at all.  Getting a window
   totally outside of display bounds, so it cannot be even
   "Alt-dragged" into a position, is really easy.

Oops, a "require" should be in ~/.sawish/rc so a minimal content
of this file for "Steps to Reproduce" would be:

(require 'sawmill-defaults)
(set-number-of-workspaces 4)

I've just committed the patch upstream, we'll get it when we pull in
the 2.6.1 tarballs:

Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2004-07-27 04:15:10 EDT
I shouldn't really have close this as UPSTREAM - its a bad enough bug
that it warrants getting an FC2 update out for it rather than just
fixing for FC3

kas: bug #109623, bug #109624 and bug #125543 all look like the same
issue to me - feel free to correct me if I'm wrong

libwnck-2.6.0.1-3 has been pushed to FC2 updates with the fix. A mail
should hit fedora-announce-list soon with the details.

This update can be downloaded from:
  http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/2/

Oh, and 2.6.0.1-4 in rawhide has the fix too.
