Description of problem:
With rp3 run as a GNOME applet on a panel, certain activities* cause rp3 to log
off the Net (call ifdown).
- 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):
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
Expected Results: Applets all move correctly. No logout.
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.
Iâm going to close this; dinât realise it was still hanging around. Pretty
obsolete my now.
