Description Bill Nottingham 2006-08-16 17:03:41 EDT
Description of problem:

When I click on the menu, sometimes it pauses for 5-15 seconds doing
'something'; this isn't really new.

However, now, when it does this, it seems to be stuck in a server grab - 
I can't switch windows or type.

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


How reproducible:

Fairly often.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open menu

you have to take a pointer grab when displaying a menu otherwise you can't get
the "click anywhere outside the menu to make it go away" behavior.

does it pause after showing the menu but before showing the icons, or pause
before showing the menu?

If the latter, its conceivable that we could do the grab later.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-12-04 14:27:13 EST
It pauses before showing the menus. I'm assuming it's rescanning desktop files
and/or icons.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 13:58:05 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-05-06 20:44:54 EDT
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.

version please feel free to reopen it against that version.
