Description of problem:
With Xinerama enabled clicking on the window title bar causes metacity
to freeze. The mouse cursor has a "+" next to it, but you can't click
on anything else or use the keyboard.
I tested with TWM and it does not have this problem. Also I tested the
same version of Metacity in FC2 and it does not have this problem.
The hardware I'm using is dual head Matrox G450.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Xinerama
2. Click on the window title bar
Actual Results: Mouse cursor has a "+" next to it. You can't click on
anything else or use the keyboard
Expected Results: You should be able to use the mouse as normal.
Can you try metacity 2.8.6 as well?
This doesn't happen if you disable xinerama with the same video card
and same metacity, right?
I just updated from rawhide to metacity-2.8.6-2 and xorg-x11-6.8.1-6
and this problem is no longer present.
FYI this didn't happen when xinerama was disabled with the same metacity.
