Description rastor 2001-04-21 21:44:18 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i586)

After upgrading to Red Hat 7.1, XMMS "always on top" feature conflicts with
the the "+DIR" functionality of the XMMS playlist.  Attempts to mouseclick
in the directory chooser window cause a beep.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run XMMS
2. turn on "always on top" (ctrl-A)
2. open playlist editor
3. click and hold "+FILE" button; release on "+DIR"
4. attempt to select a directory

Actual Results:  I heard a beep through the PC speaker and the directory
selection window did not respond.

Expected Results:  I should have been able to select a directory and add it
to the playlist.

The keyboard works, it is only the mouse that fails, and only when "always
on top" is turned on.  Also, windows sometimes "get on top" of XMMS,
although I am unable to reliably reproduce this.

I have discovered how to reliably get a window "on top" of XMMS.
1. Run Netscape (I used version 4.76)
2. open a find window (alt-F)
3. close the find window
4. click anwhere in the browser window

I'll assume you're using Sawfish, so..

This is caused by a problem with Sawfish, the stacking gets confused.


In the misc of the sawfish config. an option called "Keep transient windows
stacked above: ---", set this to "none" to make the problem go away.

It's fixed in the sawfish cvs, if a new version is out or not, I do not know.

Yep, that fixed it... this has been a minor annoyance for me for the last 8
months.  Thanks for the solution!
