When openning the xmms preferences window, I just cannot use my mouse and
click in the window.. I hear some *beep* and this message in my
~/.xsession-errors "Error: Stacking constraint failed". I'm almost sure
this bug is in sawfish.. It cannot be in xmms like i thought first because
when I launch xmms from an xterm (not from my gnome-panel) the error is
still in my ~/.xsession-errors. I configured sawfish to beep on error and
when i click in this window i hear beep.
I use absolute-e theme in sawfish (if this may help..)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch gnome+sawfish
2. launch xmms.
3. Ctrl-p to open preferences window in xmms
4. try to click in this window.
Actual Results: I hear beep and my ~/.xession-errors contains one more
"Error: Stacking constraint failed"
Expected Results: I should be able to click in this window to modify xmms
If you want some config (like ~/.sawfish directory) files of mine, just
I am logged in for 5 days now without restarting X or sawfish and IIRC
yesterday i didn't have this problem.
IIRC (still), I had this problem once with wolverine or fisher...
I cannot reproduce this at all - xmms shows no errors and there are no errors in
the .xsession-errors file. Do you try to handle xmms windows any particular way
in your .sawfishrc or sawfish preferences? what about transient windows?
I'm getting the exact same behaviour. I'm trying to add a directory to xmms's
playlist. The directory window opens up but it refuses to accept any mouse input
(not even the scrollbar works). Keyboard input is processed, though.
I'm using sawfish and launch gnome using 'startx'. I get the same error messages
in my X log file. My X session is also long lived, but I can reproduce this
behaviour every time, regardless of how long I've been using X.
If you wanna check my config files see http://confiote.ath.cx/~anvil/config.tar.gz
It contains my .gnome* and .sawfish* directories
P.S : i dont know what's a transcient window.. :(

It's probably some xmms braindamage, though sawfish should be able to
wrangle xmms without beeping.
Closing on RH level
Very similar bug as listed on the XMMS's bugzilla. One solution/workaround given:
