Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 504837
gnome clock-applet resizes itself off the right hand edge of the screen
Last modified: 2010-06-08 09:12:23 EDT
Description of problem:
(I will attach 3 screenshots to this bug which should
hopefully make the description more clear).
If the Gnome clock applet contains several locations,
then mousing over one of the locations in the applet
can cause the applet to position itself off to the
right of the screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, on my local machine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up 3 locations. I have Tokyo, London and Boston.
2. Click the clock so the applet is displayed.
3. Move mouse over one of the locations, eg. Tokyo.
Applet resizes itself and consequently moves off the
right of the screen.
Applet should remain on the screen.
3 screenshots to follow ...
Additionally I should say that the resize seems to be
caused because a "Set ..." button appears within the
location part of the applet. The applet is resizing to
cope with this button.

I can confirm that this bug still exists in gnome-panel-2.28.0-15.fc12
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Small visual bug which no one seems to care for. I don't use
GNOME any more, so I'm closing this.
