When viewing system log, a new event causes screen to rescroll.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
I am studying the log file - having scrolled to the line of interest.
Some loggable system event happens - a new line appears at the
bottom of the list, but then the whole list rescrolls - and the window
shown is the beginning of the file, not where I was looking. Not helpful.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
No version number shown
Steps to Reproduce:
1.System Tools -> System Logs
2.select System Log.
3.scroll to the middle of the list
4.wait for a (short) time until a new loggable event happens
5.observe that you are now looking at the beginning of log, not middle
As discussed above
When I am looking at the system logs, I don't want them to 'move'.
Perhaps there could be an added 'mode' button on the GUI - with two
restore viewing position after new event
view latest lines as they come
