Description Allyn Dimock 2004-11-18 14:37:06 EST
Description of problem:

After a window has been dragged on the screen with 
mouse1-down on top bar
mouse-1 up

It may or may not jump to the mouse position on the next click of mouse-1

If the window does not move when mouse moves to drag it, then it will 
always jump positions on next mouse-1 click.  If window moves when
dragged, it will sometimes jump on next mouse'1 click, sometimes not.

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

"about" on main menu bar says "Gnome 2.2.2" but is standard 
window manager for Redhat Workstation 3, which I am told is Bluecurve.

How reproducible:

Happens about 50% of all drags & drops on my Workstation 3 system at
work.  Never happens on my Redhat 8 system at home.  I do not know
what sequence will reproduce the bug.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

Windows preferences may be relevant:  mine are set to "Select windows 
when the mouse moves over them".  The behavior is independent of 
whether "Raise selected windows after an interval" is set or not.
