Description Bastien Nocera 2006-11-01 04:42:51 EST
gnome-panel 2.8.1

1. Open gnome-terminal
2. Open the gnome-terminal preferences
3. Focus the terminal window (with the prefs overlapping)
4. Take a screenshot of the terminal window

The whole part overlapped by the prefs dialogue will be garbled (see attached
screenshots). Patch attached is a backport from GNOME Bugzilla 121492, which
makes the screenshot be taken from the root window, and the region pertaining to
the window clipped.
