Description of problem:
The upclick of a quick mouse click on a title bar in metacity doesn't
seem to be recognized. If you click quickly on a titlebar, it will
often be "stuck" to the mouse pointer and get dragged around until I
click again. This seems to be related to bug 109915. Going from
Update 3 to Update 4 fixed this on one system (2.4GHz Dell OptiPlex
GX260) but not another (2.8GHz Dell OptiPlex GX270). On the 2.8GHz
system, if I try to click as quickly as possible, about 1/4-1/2 the
clicks fail this way.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run metacity, with or without GNOME.
2. Click very quickly on the title bar of any window.
Actual Results: The window gets dragged around until you click the
Expected Results: Should behave identically to a slower click.
Right, we have one or two other reports of continued problems with
this in U4 in the support issue tracker. Current theory seems to be
that there may also be a kernel or X issue. There could also be a
lingering metacity bug.
This should be resolved in RHEL3-U6
