Description of problem:
If I change the 'Status appears' option (offering "Icon only", "Text
only" and "Icon and text") in the Preferences screen for Gimlet, it
goes haywire, taking up >90% of CPU until it is killed. In fact, you
don't have to even switch the option, just clicking the combo box
should do the trick. Changing the option does, in fact, apply the
change, however (assuming you can select it before your computer goes
out to lunch).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on the Gimlet applet in the panel and choose "Preferences"
2. Change the "Status appears" setting.
3. Watch your computer grind to a halt.
Actual Results: The setting applies, but the gnome-im-switcher-applet
(aka "gimlet") starts taking up >90% CPU (verifiable via top).
Computer quickly becomes unusable.
Expected Results: The setting shoudl apply, but gimlet should not
then start consuming CPU cycles.
I rebuilt my gnome-panel rpm in order to get the date applet to synch
with evolution 1.5. My rpm options use -Os instead of the default
Could you please try to updating to the iiimf update in fc2-updates
and see if that works better for you?
Yep, seems to be fixed with iiimf-gtk-11.4-46.1.svn1587.
