dragging gnome-terminal tab to desktop maximizes new terminal window
Last modified: 2011-05-31 10:48:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Dragging a tab from gnome-terminal to the desktop puts that tab into a new window. Prior to F13, the new window kept the same size as the tab it came from. In F13, the new window starts maximized, which is annoying, nor is the old size of the tab its unmazimized size, which is also annoying. This change greatly reduces the usefulness of tab dragging.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gnome-terminal
2. CTRL-SHIFT-T to create a second tab
3. Drag a tab to the desktop
The new terminal window is maximized.
The new terminal window should be the same size as the tab which was dragged.
I'm running with Compiz enabled, but I was on F12 also and tab dragging worked fine there.
I'm still running the same version of gnome-terminal as before---though many other things have since been updated---and can no longer reproduce the problem.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
