Description dnelson 1998-12-21 21:01:51 UTC
After starting X/fvwm2, the desktop fails to scroll/switch
when the mouse is moved to an edge.  One has to manually
switch desktops using the pager.  From this point on,
automatic scrolling/switching works.

I have verified this bug to be true. When you first start fvwm you
cannot scroll with mouse from one virtual screen to another until you
click a different window in the pager module. It then scrolls from one
screen to another properly.

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1998-12-30 04:14:59 UTC
That is just the way fvwm2 appears to be working, and from looking in
the source this behavior looks to be intentional. Dunno why.
