X-term window size and position changing unexpectedly
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:
There seems to be some undesirable interaction between clusterssh and KDE. After
switching desktops the position and sometimes also the size of the two X-term
windows change in some cases. That is really annoying, because it leads to
confusion which host is which.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sometimes. Not always, but often enough to reproduce it quickly.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open cssh sessions to two hosts
2. move the X-term windows to desired screen positions, e.g. one left, one right
3. switch to other desktop (screen) and back several times
X-term window position changed
Windows should remain in the original screen position
This is known problem and is due to the perl/TK libraries not differentiating
between a minimize/maximise event and a virtual desktop switch event.
I will recheck perl/Tk to see if this has changed recently.
