Description Steve Salevan 2010-04-21 18:34:41 UTC
Description of problem:
During long operations with subscription-manager-gui, the application will halt redrawing.  Long operations should be run asynchronously, or the GTK redraw function should be called during long operations.

git HEAD

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform a long operation (adding subscriptions, registering, etc.) with the subscription-manager-gui tool
2. Move one of its component windows around on the screen
Actual results:
As above

Expected results:
Application windows redraw during long operations

Comment 3 James Bowes 2010-05-26 11:47:55 UTC
+1 for async. manually calling redraw rarely works.

Comment 9 Jeff Weiss 2010-10-13 14:30:03 UTC
This is a higher priority from qa's point of view - UI hangs need to be fixed.

Not only do the panels and dialogs stop drawing during long operations (which are most evident when registered to candlepin1, which is slow), there are dialogs which are supposed to contain progress bars, for which the progress bar is not even drawn until the very end of the operation.  For example, when subscribing to a pool.

Comment 10 Bryan Kearney 2011-01-04 17:14:23 UTC
With the new design, there are fewer flyovers.. and I am not seeing this.

Comment 11 J.C. Molet 2011-02-08 15:50:06 UTC
This cannot be reproduced as tested in versions above subscription-manager-gnome-0.95.1-1.git.5.ea27497.el6.x86_64
