Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 588870
Alt-Tab on second screen blanks after second tab
Last modified: 2010-05-04 15:54:35 EDT
Description of problem:
When using alt-tab to switch the active app, if the dialog or whatever it is called is displayed on the second monitor of a dual monitor setup (no xorg), the third tab will blank the icons. Meaning that once I've hit tab 3 times in an attempt to cycle through the running apps the icons are gone, just a grey window. I can continue to cycle and if I've counted where I wanted to end up can get the app I want. This never happens if the alt-tab window shows up on the primary monitor (the one with the 'task bar?')
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Alt-Tab on secondary monitor
2. Tab at least twice
Blank alt-tab 'window'
Continuously display all running program tab icons / screens
Already fixed upstream.
So, next time we update the gnome-shell packages will be better.
Thanks... I asked on irc if it was a known issue but wasn't known to the people I asked I guess.
