Description Charlie Martin 2005-01-09 04:20:55 UTC

Description of problem:
The typing monitor (Typing Monitor 2.8.0) under Fedora Core 3 (updated
today) causes the mouse cursor to become invisible after a typing break.

To replicate:

 - set typing monitor (via, eg, keyboard preferences)
 - let monitor active or activate with Right-CLICK -> 'Take a break'
 - wait out the pause

cursor will no longer be visible, and clicks are no longer observed or
passed to applications.  However, the 'find cursor' operation will
show the concentric diamonds.

(PS.  'About' shows richard@imendio.com as author.  I'll also send a
note to that address.)



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-panel-2.8.1-3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
 - set typing monitor (via, eg, keyboard preferences)
 - let monitor active or activate with Right-CLICK -> 'Take a break'
 - wait out the pause 

Actual Results:  Mouse cursor invisible, keyboard focus no longer
available, cursor locator identifies a spot on monitor.  Restarting X
server necessary to recover.

Expected Results:  Cursor comes back after wait.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

I can not reproduce this bug in Fedora 8 with gnome-terminal-2.18.3-1.fc8.

Fedora Core 3 is not maintained anymore if you can reproduce this bug in Fedora
7 or Fedora 8 please reopen this bug.
