Description Alan Cox 2007-01-09 15:47:28 UTC
When using Sun java jvm to run applications some menu pull downs (normally
larger ones) appear in the wrong place on the screen (and can be used there but
with difficulty). Switching to another window manager and disabled effects gets
the menus appearing where they belong.

An easy way to see this is the menus in DecoderPro from JMRI

Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2007-10-12 16:26:54 UTC
Alan, can you still reproduce this with IcedTea and Rawhide (or F7; F6 is going
to be EOLed soon)?

Sorry, guys, wrong bug number -- you have never seen these attachments ;-).

Comment 7 Matěj Cepl 2007-12-10 09:23:00 UTC
Fedora Core 6 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora 7, 8, or
Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know
in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we
will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

[This is mass-filed message to all open Fedora Core 6 bugs related to Xorg or
Gecko. If you see any other reason, why this bug shouldn't be closed, please,
comment on it here.]

Comment 8 Alan Cox 2007-12-10 15:26:55 UTC
I'd love to be able to test it but right now compiz won't even run on my desktop
with FC8. Once I have that sorted I'll test further.

Comment 9 Matěj Cepl 2007-12-10 17:27:59 UTC
Marking just as NEEDINFO, just to know on which side of the playground the ball is 

Comment 10 Alan Cox 2008-01-08 21:17:12 UTC
Still broken on FC8 in some cases but usually offset by less and mostly shows up
on pulldown menus in JMRI

Comment 11 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-09 16:09:26 UTC
Cool, thanks, passing the batton to krh.

Comment 12 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 07:08:47 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 13 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 07:03:10 UTC
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
