Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 479888
Double click sometimes ceases working
Last modified: 2009-03-25 23:28:34 EDT
Description of problem:
Sometimes the double-click selection stops working. If it occurs, no
double-click will ever work until you tripp-click or move and click.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not easy, but possible
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Use a laptop
1. open gnome-terminal
2. place cursor over a word, remove finger from touchpad
4. click and double-click
this takes some patience
it's ok to make pauses to reset any timers, this seems random
most importantly, don't tripple-click (line selection)
Double click ceases working until a motion or a tripple-click occurs
If someone has an easy way to capture a stream of clicks with timestamps,
I can do that.
Working on a fix tonight.
