Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 69964
Drag and Drop when a save/load dialog appears hangs X.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:44:33 EDT
Description of Problem:
If you goto a site that automatically redirects you to a download (Eg. sf.net)
and are in the process of doing a drag and drop of a link to gnome-terminal as
you do it. Then galeon will grab either the pointer or the server ... I'm not
sure which "hanging" the server.
I tried the ungrab functions in sawfish-client, but I've got a radeon so my VT
is screwed up (mike's just fixed this :).
Anyway a "kilall -9 galeon-bin" fixed everything.
I'm also not sure it isn't a mozilla problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Is this still an issue?
Yes, with version galeon-1.2.3-1 and mozilla-1.0rc3-0, goto...
...click on a link for a mirror. Then when the new link comes up click and hold
the address and drag it to a gnome-terminal (_don't_ let go). Wait for the
automatic redirect to do it's thing and the dialog to appear. Pretty much the
only thing you can do now is Alt+Ctl+F1 and killall -9 galeon-bin.
What happens if you just hit ESC?
You're right, keyboard focus is in the dialog, ESC quits the dialog and then
you can click inside the gnome-terminal to "drop" the drag and drop.
It's still non-obvious that you can get out of it IMO, as the focus "outline"
doesn't show in the dialog and the window isn't highlighted by the wm (well
sawfish, maybe metacity is better in this regard ?) ... and of course the mouse
