Description Matthew Harelick 2000-06-25 15:42:31 EDT

When I use netscape 4.72, when I pull down a menu, netscape freezes, and
the X-windows desktop stops accepting events. This occurs in either 
kde or gnome. 

I have been able to test this by bringing up xev before
launching netscape, using the menu, and then noticing that there are no
events showing up in xev. I can move the mouse and I see the cursor move, 
but the events are not registering with xev. 

Before anyone says that this is a netscape problem only, I usually end
up killing the netscape processes from another console session and 
control still does not get restored to the Xwindows desktop. 

This is a critical problem as it is an obstacle to my use of my Linux 
box on the net. I am in fact typing this from Internet Explorer. 

My system statistics are as follows:
CPU : AMD K6 - 2 400.
MB : Tyan S1598C2
RAM: 128M
Video: ATI Rage 128.

I am using the Suse version of the Xserver recommended to fix 
strange behavior associated with the ATI card. 

Thank You

Matthew Harelick

we can't duplicate this with XFree86 4.0.1 in Red HAt Linux 7.0 beta, so we must
assume that the problem is either solved or localized to your installation.
