I can confirm this problem... but what is happening is that clicking to minimize
xmms makes metacity (the GNOME window manager) crash. Two possibilities :
- The way xmms tries to minimize itself is wrong.
- There is a bug in metacity.
I would tend to suspect a bug in metacity, which might be worth investigating.

Same problem here with bmp, bmpx and audacious. Is it because Metacity doesn't
managed these apps' windows? I mean they use their own window border.
Comment 4 Laszlo Dvornik 2006-03-27 09:05:13 EST
If I rebuild metacity packages without metacity-2.13.144-bling.patch,
metacity- and
metacity-, the minimization is OK.
It would be great if the maintainer of the metacity package make a new package
for FC5 updates without experimental bling patches or fix these patches.
It is a very annoying bug. :(

This definitely seems like a metacity bug, but I can't seem to find how to
reassign a bug from en Extras to a Core component... maybe you could file a new
bug against metacity and put a link to it here?
Comment 6 Matthias Saou 2006-03-27 11:31:09 EST
OK, changing the product to Fedora Core worked, so I'll now change the component
to metacity and reassign to the default owner.
Comment 7 Laszlo Dvornik 2006-04-19 06:59:15 EDT
metacity-2.14.3-1.fc5.1 fixed the problem. Please close this bugzilla entry.
