Description Tim Waugh 2001-01-28 08:16:36 EST
In Red Hat Linux 7 I was able to get the 'Run program' (foot->Run...)
dialog to appear when I pressed Ctrl-shift-r, I *think* by default rather
than by changing the configuration.

Now it doesn't work, and I can't even configure it to work.  I have:

C-R   Run shell command:

But pressing the key combo just temporarily removes focus from the active
window and then gives it back.

In fact, I can't get C-R to do _anything_.

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2001-01-30 09:06:55 EST
If I downgrade to sawfish-0.34-1 it works.

Odd, the key binding is actually in the panel as far as I know, but swapping
Sawfish versions makes it work... the configuration for this is in "Global
Properties" for the panel.
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2001-02-05 20:22:15 EST
Problem here is that the panel was reading the key event from uninitialized
memory that happened to be used previously for a similar key event, since the 
two were adjacent in the event queue or something, so the panel was completely
broken but worked through dumb luck. Recent Sawfish versions through some
unrelated change insert an extra event in the queue and disrupt the mysterious
alignment of planets that allowed the broken panel to miraculously work.
Upstream maintainer for gnome-core is sending me a patch.

I'm building a fixed package now.
