Description Erich Hoover 2005-08-03 14:18:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8b3) Gecko/20050729 Fedora/1.1-0.2.5.deerpark.alpha2 Firefox/1.0+

Description of problem:
On recent rawhides (about the same time as bug #), closing a "drawer" in the gnome panel causes the panel to disappear on all workspaces except the one that you are actively using.  By launching the panel manually (killing the existing copy and quickly loading one from a console) I saw this error:
** (gnome-panel:30306): CRITICAL **: panel_toplevel_pop_autohide_disabler: assertion `toplevel->priv->n_autohide_disablers > 0' failed

The panel does not segfault (it stays running) but it's very difficult to work on a multiple workspaces when only one of them has the gnome panel.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Install latest rawhide
1. Create a drawer on your gnome panel (if you don't have one already, works for new or old drawers)
2. Open the drawer and change to another desktop
3. Close the drawer and change to another desktop

Actual Results:  After step "3" the panel is gone on all desktops except the one the drawer was closed from.

Expected Results:  The gnome panel should have stayed.

Additional info:

Occurs on both x86-64 and i386.

oops - forgot the bug number for timeframe reference: it's Bug 164664 "Firefox
crashes with cairo assertion".

This is actually a bug in gtk+ which is fixed in gtk+-2.7.5:


Should see it in rawhide soon
