Just sort of left here for now:

Since that link was from last July, can you ping upstream? 

This bug is part of an FES ticket: https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-engineering-services/ticket/39

Adam, please respond to Comment 3 so I can update FES ticket 39.

Adam, any progress?

Comment 8 Adam Goode 2011-05-03 14:40:08 UTC
Sorry, I am totally behind on this. I need to push out the new version which has at least a partial fix for this.

Comment 9 Thom Carlin 2011-08-01 00:04:06 UTC
Another bump

Comment 10 Adam Goode 2011-08-12 18:43:33 UTC
With 7.24 in rawhide now, it's better but still not perfect.

Comment 11 Thom Carlin 2011-10-01 10:04:36 UTC
Hi Adam,  what remains to resolve this?

Comment 12 Benjamin Gilbert 2012-10-20 16:38:04 UTC
The remaining piece is a modified version of the GtkSheet widget.  Upstream says the original is ill-behaved when embedded into another widget as nip2 does.  Upstream isn't satisfied with the forked version, either, and wants to find an alternative when nip2 is ported to gtk3.  So hopefully this is not a long-term problem.

nip2 has a compile-time option to disable GtkSheet and fall back to GtkTreeView, at some cost in functionality.  I propose to enable the fallback beginning in F18.
