Description Steve Bryant 2009-07-04 10:45:35 UTC
Description of problem:
The Software Log Viewer applet (/usr/bin/gpk-log) has a filter box that allows you to display only the updates that contain the entered string.  Despite there being a "Filter" button, it searches the installed package list a short time after each character is entered.  The "Filter" button appears now to obsolete.

If the characters are entered reasonably quickly (i.e. before the search for the previous character completes and it displays on the filter bar), the sequence of such characters is reversed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Type in the filter box reasonably quickly.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type a search term such as "kernel", "ker" (pause then add) "nel", or "fred"
Actual results:
"lenrek", "reklen", or "derf" appear in the seach box and are used to filter the installed packages.

Expected results:
"kernel", "kernel", or "fred" appear in the filter box ... with characters in the order typed(!)

Additional info:

Comment 1 Steve Bryant 2009-07-04 11:09:37 UTC
Once the filter text entered returns no matches, any further text entered is no longer scrambled but appears as typed.  This indicates that the issue could be caused by the applet initially searching the installed packages as each character is typed.

    Don't connect to key press _and_ release in gpk-log. Fixes rh#509636

Next release on Monday, I'll backport to F11 if there are no problems for a few days in rawhide.
