Description Brandon Nielsen 2019-09-18 19:48:32 UTC
Description of problem:
Enabling background transparency results in strange menu behavior

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Modify profile to have a transparent background
2. Shrink terminal window so menu will appear above terminal window
3. Click menu button

Actual results:
Menu appears to have an additional box behind it, after dismissing the menu, this box intermittently reappears as mouse is moved around terminal or the area where the menu used to be shown.

Expected results:
Menu appears above the terminal window with no additional black box. No portions of the menu remain after the menu is dismissed.

Additional info:
Running with a Wayland session, did not test Xorg.

In looking into this a little deeper, and trying to reproduce, there seem to be 3, possibly related issues.

1 - The initial 'box' appearing behind the menu, this is definitely related to the issue linked in the GNOME issue tracker. I will attach a screenshot.

2 - The reappearing 'box', which only appears on my AMD RV630 machine, I cannot reproduce on my system with Intel integrated graphics.

3 - On both systems, with the same initial conditions mentioned above, moving the mouse over the zoom controls in the menu can cause portions of the menu to disappear. Moving the mouse away from the zoom controls causes the missing portion to reappear.

I have yet to find a good way to capture the second two issues, screen capture tools do not show the corruption.

Using X.org, the zoom menu simply does not appear when the terminal is sufficiently small. This happens with or without background transparency enabled.
