Description Thomas Smith 2002-10-12 13:57:00 EDT

Description of problem:
System Logs window will not respond to commands when reproducibility steps are
followed. Realize this is fairly normal behaviour in a windowed system and
perhaps not under the control of redhat-logviewer code. However, it could
confuse a user in that the Preferences Window is completely hidden behind the
System Window (and any other windows opened thereafter), which gives the
appearance that System Logs is simply unresponsive.

Discovered this by going to Alerts tab of Preferences, adding a string to flag,
and the clicking back on the System Logs window to see if that had taken with
the intent of going back and adding another flag (sort of using the Preferences
Alert as a realtime editor on the flag display of System Log window). Realize
this may not be the intent, but others may try to do this as well.

Also recommend adding an "Add" button to the Add Alert Word dialog and the
XFree86 Log markers (WW), (EE), (NI), and (??) to the default alert word list.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start log viewer via Start Menu -> System Tools -> System Logs
2.Go to Edit -> Preferences
3.When Preferences window comes up, click on System Logs window visible in the
4. Attempt to use System Logs window (e.g. scroll log)

Good point. I can set the transient for the window so it doesn't let you move it
below the main window.

I have set all modal windows to transient as well. It should show up in
rawhide shortly. Thanks for the report.
