Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 205215
clock applet slowly wanders across the screen
Last modified: 2008-04-03 14:22:23 EDT
Description of problem:
This is a bit hard to explain, after a while the clock applet when locked in
place starts to wander across the screen ever so slowly. The attached screenshot
displays the problem.
This problem has existed for quite sometime, maybe years.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add clock-applet to the panel
2. lock it in place
3. wait... for a long time
clock magically starts wandering ever so slowly but still highly annoying
That the clock applet behaves better than your average dog. stay put.

so to be clear, the problem is that when the clock gets longer (because of a
longer date string or something), it doesn't reshrink later?
It sometimes reshrinks if I left-click the clock.. other wise it keeps growing.
Right-click doesn't seem to have the same effect as left-clicking it and if you
first do a right-click, it won't reshrink with a following left-click.
It doesn't naturally reshrink except upon restarting the session.
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against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained.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flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained.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.
I'll give the GNOME guys a break, it only took a complete rewrite to get rid of
this.. closing as fixed in Development as the intlclock our one true future does
indeed fix this, after years of this I have giving up on my youthful naivity.
Embrace the future, all hail the intlclock.
