Description Trever Adams 2006-03-16 16:53:33 EST
Description of problem:
If one goes to http://lists.samba.org/archive/samba-cvs/2006-March/thread.html
and then reads on of the archived messages, and then goes to any other website,
the window list "button" will not update the title. This happens whenever the
site title is long.

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

How reproducible:
Every time
Comment 1 Trever Adams 2006-04-27 20:29:50 EDT
This still exists. I am wondering, is this a possible security threat? If this
is some sort of buffer overrun, then it is. If it is a protection against buffer
overrun, it is probably broken since the text stays stuck.
Comment 2 Trever Adams 2006-05-02 14:59:52 EDT
This may now be fixed. I cant get it to happen in the MAY archive of samba-cvs.
I will try and make it happen more, but if anyone else has seen this, please
check. It may be fixed.
Comment 3 Trever Adams 2006-05-04 18:33:51 EDT
This does indeed seem to be fixed. As of the last update I cannot trigger the
bug. gnome-applets-2.14.1-1.fc5.1
