Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 221499
mouse grab of title bar loses grab and pointer snaps away from window
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:52 EST
Description of problem:
Often, when using the mouse to grab the title bar of a window to drag it across
the screen, the window moves a little then the mouse seems to lose the grab and
the points snaps to some distance away from teh original grab point, but still
dragging the window. This just started happening today so I think the bug has
been recently introduced. The same problem occurs with all of the window
decorators. The same problem does not occur with metacity.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Most window grab&drags
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Press Button-1 over title bar of a window
2.drag window around screen
pointer snaps away from window
mouse pointer should remain at grab poisition on wiondow during drag
Hrm, what sort of xorg.conf do you have? I'm unable to reproduce this bug,
window dragging is working as expected here. Also, does this happen with compiz
as well (enabled via "Desktop Effects" item on System->Preferences menu), or
Created attachment 145124 [details]
Can't reproduce the problem using compiz with a couple of minutes of dragging
windows around. Switching back to beryl and the problem occurs immediately on
xorg.conf attached in Comment #2.
Hrm, your config looks pretty similar to the one I've got here, though I don't
have anything for these three:
Option "NvAGP" "True"
Option "HWCursor" "True"
Option "CursorShadow" "True"
Maybe try with those off, see if there's any difference? Also, what driver
version is this with? I'm running 1.0-9746...
I'm also running 1.0-9746. I have no i386 rpms on my system so I'm definitely
running 64bit binaries.
Turning those options off didn't change this problem, but it did momentarily
introduce some nasty block artifacts around the pointer. Also the pointer would
just disappear at times, but still worked if you could guess where it was.
I have a GeForce 7800 GT with 256MB on PCI Express 16X
Please see if you can reproduce this with the 0.1.99.2 packages built yesterday...
...or with the 0.1.9999.1 packages built today.
Sorry, my system was down for repairs...
I cannot reproduce this problem with beryl-0.1.9999.2-2.fc7.x86_64
Seems that bug is fixed. Thanks.
Cool, happy to hear it.
