window size is too small.
Description of problem:
gpk-application window size is unusable(too small) and unchangeable.
size is 311x220.
xwininfo: Please select the window about which you
would like information by clicking the
mouse in that window.
xwininfo: Window id: 0x5600004 "Add/Remove Software"
Absolute upper-left X: 776
Absolute upper-left Y: 511
Relative upper-left X: 776
Relative upper-left Y: 511
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Add/Remove Software
On most systems it's maximized - still unchangeable though. Dragging the maximized window causes it to become tiny-size.

If this fails to fix the problem, please re-open this bug. Thanks.
Patch 1, 2 do not apply to gnome-packagekit.spec(0.3.8-2.fc10).

Actually applying the patches successfully *does* gpk-application resizeable, but it still starts out maximized.
Hitting the "unmaximize" button makes it unusably tiny. And it doesn't remember its size or position between uses, so you have to Unmaximize+ Resize-to-usable-size the window every time.
I think I've fixed this in rawhide -- can you please re-open if it still does not work? Thanks.
gnome-packagekit-0.3.9-1.fc10.i386 still exhibits the behavior from comment #4 - gpk-application *is* resizeable now, but:
a) always starts maximized, and
b) when unmaximized, becomes unusably small.

gpk-application --verbose log
The log shows gpk-application using 'small formfactor mode' on my 1920x1200 display...
Ahh, I've patched 0.3.9-3 to fix the size request -- it was a stupid typo on my part, apologies. I didn't hit this as I run my setup in a double-wide screen.
This now works for me (tested on two machines) but please reopen if 0.3.9-3 doesn't completely fix things.
Either I'm testing it wrong, or it's still not working.

- using small form factor mode
My monitor's 1680x1050, for the record.
I really don't think this is a preview blocker. Moving over to F10Blocker.
Thanks for testing this so fast Will -- apologies, I'm getting sleepy here:
* Mon Oct 27 2008 Richard Hughes <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 0.3.9-4
- Barr. Actually apply the patch. Sleep time.
Can you retry 0.3.9-4 please? Thanks.
No apologies necessary - rumor has it you're only human. :)
0.3.9-4 works as expected. Closing.
