Description of problem:
When starting xawtv in my Xinerama-using enviornment the window frame and the
xawtv video overlay appear on different screen.  The offset on each screen is
identical, it's just that the two components use different screen.  xawtv seems
to be be somewhat xinerama awayre since it prints

xinerama 0: 1600x1200+1600+0
xinerama 1: 1600x1200+0+0

at startup.  But somewhere there is a little mistake,

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create Xinerama setup.  Screen 0 is at the right with a nonzero offset. 
Screen 1 has offset 0.
2.start xawtv

Actual Results:  Window frame and contents on different screens.

Expected Results:  Window frame and contents on same screen.

please try xawtv-3.85-1 in rawhide. Please let me know if it's fixed?

Comment 2 Dmitry Bolkhovityanov 2003-06-14 13:47:51 UTC
I've tried XawTv with Xinerama under RedHat9 (xawtv-3.81) today, and the problem
still exists.  3.85 and 3.88 from rawhide exibit the same "separated" behaviour.

Comment 3 Ulrich Drepper 2003-10-07 00:16:59 UTC
I do not have the same setup anymore.  I now use two separate video cards for
the two screens and in this setup xawtv works as expected.

Comment 4 Marcin Garski 2004-09-28 20:37:45 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer included xawtv
in Fedora Core. It has been replaced by tvtime.
Please upgrade to the latest version of Fedora Core and open a new bug
if the problem also occur in tvtime.

If you still use xawtv and this bug still persists, please report the
problem in upstream bug tracker or on mailing list
(usualy they can be found on xawtv website
If the project don't have bug tracker and mailing list, you should
sent bug report by email to xawtv maintainer.
Also Fedora Legacy Project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some
older releases, and if you believe this bug is interesting to them,
please report the problem in the bug tracker at:
