Description Frank Arnold 2007-03-05 06:00:52 EST
Description of problem:
I have gnome-power-manager configured to display a logout dialog when pressing
the power button of my laptop. Effectively it's the same as `gnome-session-save
--kill --gui`. The dialog gets displayed, but is completely unresponsive. On my
desktop with FC5 the background fades out after running that command. That's not
the case on my laptop with up to date Rawhide.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to GNOME
2. Open a terminal window
3. Run `gnome-session-save --kill --gui`
Actual results:
Logout/shutdown dialog gets drawn, but no actions can be performed. The only
option to get out of this is to kill gnome-session.

Expected results:
Possibility to do something inside the dialog, and actually log out.

Additional info:
With Compiz enabled, I get a blank window without controls.
The system is a PowerBook G4 with Radeon Mobility 9700.

In longer term it would be nice to sync the appearance of this dialog with the
gnome-panel dialog (accessible from the main menu).

Turns out, this happens only if a11y is enabled. Without a11y it works.

adding to FC7Target

Sees to work fine here with current rawhide. Do you still see this problem ?

Yes, it's still not working. The only difference is that now no widget gets
drawn inside the dialog, even without Compiz. It's just a grey square.

But a11y support needs to be enabled in your personal preferences to reproduce this.

gnome-session-save --kill --gui 
works fine for me with a11y turned on, too.

can you attach your ~/.gnome2/session ?

Sure. Here it is.
Comment 10 Frank Arnold 2007-04-19 03:39:06 EDT
Just updated from 2.18.0-3 to 2.18.0-5, and what should I say... it works.

Maybe the fix of bug 229912 did the trick.
