How did you get this to happen?

Comment 3 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-09-26 10:16:07 UTC
I think a lot of selinux applet crashes are due to its bad ui which is overfond of badly synchronized popups. I'll bet most of them assume the window that spawned them never changes state during their lifetime, which is wrong (especially since sealert can be slow as a pig and the user is not likely to wait doing nothing while it processes an entry)

Besides, this is just bad ui. Inline notification (like the firefox yellow bar) is much better than opening lots of small popups all over the screen.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-28 20:45:21 UTC
I really do not know what you mean.  What popups?  The notification that a alert has arrived?

Comment 5 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-09-29 05:41:50 UTC
the "report this bug" and "this bug was filed as ..." popups

Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-29 12:05:32 UTC
What would you like to see?  Do you dislike the report the bug being a popup windoow?  Would you rather see the report this bug change to the "this bug was filed as" window?

Comment 7 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-09-29 12:30:28 UTC
It would certainly be nicer if sealert did all its work in a single window withour any popup

Comment 8 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-29 12:36:22 UTC
Patches Accepted :^).

If I get help I will suggest your changes.  Most changes were done with a Summer Intern, hopefully I will get some back over Winter break or next summer.
