Description of problem:
Apologies for the wordiness of this report, but it's a difficult
problem to describe.
When a user chooses a display mode using the "resize & rotate" applet
with KDE which differs from X-orgs default mode the following problem
occurs when they logout:
At the login prompt (GDM) it reverts back to the default display mode
which is correct, however the mouse still seems to think it's
configured for the user's display mode. In other words when I move
the mouse over a widget it's not highlighted and I can't click on it,
I have to move it so far to the right of the widget, depending on the
resolution the user chose.
Say the default resolution is 1600 x 1200.
User chooses 1280 x 1024 when logged in and logs out.
X-org reverts back to 1600 x 1200 however the mouse still behaves as
if it's on a 1280 x 1024 screen so it's mis-aligned with everything
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure X-org with a default resolution (eg 1600x1200)
2. Log into KDE as an ordinary user.
3. Use the "Screen Resize & Rotate program" (K Menu -> System Tools
-> Resize & Rotate)
4. Choose a lower resolution (eg 1280 x 1024)
5. Log out and at the GDM screen try clicking on any widgets.
I'm using a vanilla install of Fedora Core 2 with the latest updates
applied at the time of writing.
