Description Neil Bird 2002-04-29 07:37:17 EDT

Description of problem:
With rp3 run as a GNOME applet on a panel, certain activities* cause rp3 to log
off the Net (call ifdown).

* e.g.,
- move other applets around that cause rp3 applet to relocate.
- have large tasklist on same panel and grow to overfill panel (this is when I
first saw the problem, with lots of browser windows open).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run rp3 applet
2. dial up via rp3
3. drag other applets on panel around (using shift &/or ctrl)


Actual Results:  Applets all move correctly;  at some point, dialup connection
is lost.

Expected Results:  Applets all move correctly.  No logout.

Additional info:

I have finally tracked this down:  there is a 'cancel dialup upon logout' option
which seems nice & safe & I use.

However, it is checked for in rp3/appapplet.c:session_save_applet().  This
routine, if the option is set, issues an ifdown.  However, the routine can
seemingly be called upon rearrangement of the parent panel's applets, and so
does *not* want to be logging the user off the Net.

I’m going to close this;  din’t realise it was still hanging around.  Pretty
obsolete my now.
