Description Ed McKenzie 2001-02-21 15:26:44 UTC
Steps to reproduce under sawfish:

1. Open control-center.
2. Switch to a different desktop/workspace.
3. Open control-center again. It apparently tries to pop up the original
window, but it fails. There's a button in the taskbar, but it can't be
clicked. The original gnomecc remains on the first desktop.

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

Comment 2 Tim Powers 2001-03-09 16:42:05 UTC
This is actually a bug in sawfish. 

I am changing the component and reassigning as per Owen's instructions.


Comment 3 Need Real Name 2001-03-20 01:23:06 UTC
It's actually due to a bug in the GNOME wm-spec. I've fixed it in sawfish anyway
as of version 0.38

Comment 4 Tim Powers 2001-03-20 15:35:53 UTC
I have built an updated sawfish package (0.38) and currently running it. I have
verified that this bug is fixed in the 0.38 release of sawfish.


Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2001-03-22 20:55:02 UTC
So I backported a patch related to the GNOME wm spec made between 0.37 and 0.38,
but it just resulted in a really amusingly broken sawfish, so I think I picked
the wrong patch to backport. ;-) John can you tell me which file this is in?

Comment 6 Need Real Name 2001-03-22 23:45:19 UTC
The relative changes were made in revisions 1.69 and 1.70 of the file

Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2001-03-23 01:06:13 UTC
OK, I think I put in only the 1.69 diff, I'll try adding the 1.70 stuff too and
see if it works.

Thanks for the help!

Comment 8 Havoc Pennington 2001-07-12 20:10:45 UTC
We have 0.38 in rawhide now, so fixed. (Of course we broke the control center in
other ways, but...)
