Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 148763
Xnest doesn't update shape regions
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:00 EST
If you run a session under xnest:
$> Xnest -ac :1 &
$> /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession gnome
open a window and try and resize it, you'll see that the window is
still clipped at its original shape. This happens under BlueCurve
because BlueCurve uses rounded window corners.
Fix is relatively trivial:
It'd be nice to get this in rawhide, though. Otherwise sessions running
in Xnest are very painful to use.

An example of the kind of problems I've seen:
I've added myself to the upstream bug, and flagged it to nominate it for
the 6.8 stable branch. Once it gets accepted into CVS, (assuming it does
of course) we will include it in future builds.
This patch was already accepted into upstream HEAD, and very likely to
go into stable, so I have added it to our builds (basically to make
this bug disappear from MCP).
The patch added to CVS doesn't compile with 6.8.2. Reopening bug.
That's because its not the same patch as I attached. I've committed
the patch I attached (after confirming that it actually does still
build). I'll leave it up to you guys to re-enable it, though.
Patch builds now. Present in 6.8.2-10 and later in rawhide.
Will be in all future FC3/RHEL4/FC4 builds.
