Description Benjamin Bellec 2010-05-04 20:13:58 UTC
Description of problem:
When maximizing a window by double clicking, then the next window opened is not grab when we want to move it. Instead it's the first window which is grab.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 6 Beta 1 (i386 DVD)

How reproducible:
Each time a window is maximize by double clicking.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new window (for instance Nautilus)
2. Maximize it by double-clicking on it
3. Open a new window (for instance Terminal)
4. Grab the Terminal to move it on the desktop
Actual results:
This is not the correct window which is grab (in that case Nautlius instead of Terminal).

Expected results:
Grab the good window (Terminal in that case).

This entry is a duplication of a know bug on F12/F13 (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=533066)

I'd love to fix this, unfortunately, I've still not reproduced it once, and it's basically impossible for me to fix without being able to reproduce.

The video attached to the Fedora 13 bug is very helpful, *except* that when I do exactly the same sequence of steps I don't reproduce it. :-(

Comment 4 Benjamin Bellec 2010-05-05 13:18:57 UTC
I understand.

What kind of video card (and driver) do you use ? I ask, because (as said in the F13 bug entry) this happend strangly on my two PC (both with radeon driver)... I'm asking on the french fedora forum for have more precision on this track.

Perhaps can you test a LiveF13 on a PC with radeon hardware ?

I have same problem on my RHEL 6 laptop.

When I maximize window 1, I tried two ways which both experience this bug:
 - switching to other window using window list on panel, then moving it - moves window 1
 - having laptop screen and external monitor without mirror screen; having window 1 on one display and window 2 on second one, it happens also (moving window 1 on display of window 2...)

My graphics card is some intel one:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
	Subsystem: Lenovo Device 20e4

Comment 7 David Kutálek 2010-06-01 11:42:15 UTC
By the way, the problem is not only when you try grabbing.
Also click to eg. a close button is sent to wrong window.


Comment 8 Benjamin Bellec 2010-06-01 11:54:49 UTC
Of course ! It's just an example.
It occurs also when you want to close a window : that's the wrong window which is closed...
