Description Zack Cerza 2004-07-08 16:57:35 EDT
Description of problem:
With nested panels/drawers at depths greater than 2, clicking on the
root panel/drawer's hide button produces an entertaining visual effect
but doesn't actually close any of the drawers.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a drawer to the panel. Let's call it drawer 'A' .
2. Add a drawer to drawer A. Let's call it drawer 'B' .
3. Add a drawer to drawer B. Let's call it drawer 'C' .
4. Click on drawer A.
Actual results:
The drawers dance around a bit, but don't close.

Expected results:
The dancing I don't mind, but the drawers should at least close ;)

Additional info:
The drawers' dance moves are even more entertaining when you have >10
or so levels. Also, you can get the same effect by clicking on either
of the panel's hide buttons. In that case you only need 2 levels of
drawers open.
A number of people have suggested disallowing the nesting of drawers.
I think that's an unncesessary feature removal. It shouldn't be too
hard to make the drawers recursively close each other.

Confirmed. This definitely worked at some point in the past, will
investigate further
