Description Shane R. Stixrud 2002-10-05 15:36:57 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
I have configured a "menu panel" and placed an applet tray on this panel.  After
booting in to gnome the redhat applet appears fine.  After running an
application which requires root the authenication keys applet stacks on top of
the RedHat applet.  This result in both applets being only partly visable.  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a menu panel
2.Place applet tray on this panel
3.Make sure rhn_applet and authenication keys applet is loaded

Actual Results: Applets stacks (up and down), making nither fully visable.

Expected Results:  Applets should stack left to right instead of up and down.

Possibly a side effect of the same breakage in

Trouble seeing how this bug is related to that crasher bug in gnome bugzilla. I
just uploaded a screenshot showing this bug. I have two tray applets running
Gaim and Rhythmbox and instead of getting stacked horizontally in a horizontal
panel they get stacked vertically.
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-10-26 11:10:52 EDT
The crasher bug in bugzilla is because the applet tracks its orientation
incorrectly (it confuses PanelAppletOrient or whatever with GtkOrientation)
resulting in an assertion failure.

So I'm wondering if this bug is caused by the same, just the applet 
thinking it's vertical. If so this bug would be fixed in GNOME CVS.

Ok, I finally managed to get GNOME 2.1.x running and correctly enough this bug
is gone in that version. As a sidenote the 'handle' is larger and due to that
less visualy pleasing in this version.
