Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187496
scrolled window shrinks in one line
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
First, I load several sets are loaded in a graph; when I
choose a set and when I select hide (with the pop-up menu), the scrolled
window shrinks definitively to one line (which is boring for further
manipulations on other sets). This probleme is the same if I select
the menu Data/evaluate Expression and if I work on several sets.
The problem is the same if I recompile grace for the source. It is
independent of the architecture (i386, x86_64)
I tried to apply sloppy patches on the code, but they did not cure
completely the problem.
The probleme seems to be related to a new behavior of the openmotif
library, but my knowledge of OpenMotif is not sufficient.
I installed a binary version (working on FC4) which displays the same
problem on FC5
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I tried to change a line in src/motifutils.c
XtSetArg(args, XmNscrollBarDisplayPolicy, XmSTATIC);
XtSetArg(args, XmNscrollBarDisplayPolicy, XmCONSTANT);
With the dirty patch , the scrolled window has two lines after a first
operation on sets, but shrinks in one line aftter a second operation
Steps to Reproduce:
I guess that this is related with:
This seems to be a bug in motif and not grace, although it clearly affects

openmotif rpm file (modified)
Thank you for finding the bug. I patched the openmotif src rpm file and I added
the patch. Xmgrace works very well. I do not know if my rpm file is built with
the state of the art and I do not know the maintainer of openmotif. If you can
forward my mail and the package for an update of openmotif, it will be great
Sincerely yours, Pascal
You beat me reporting the bug to the right component.
I will let this bug opened while the issue is not fixed in openmotif package.
Since grace does not use openmotif anymore I will close this bug. This problem
does not apply anymore.
