it should only "jump" if the item you are clicking on is not completely visible.
 Is the item you are clicking on totally visible?  (not cut off at the top or
bottom due to the scrolled window)

Comment 2 Leonid Kanter 2002-11-22 11:37:55 UTC
Not, it jumps even if item (i.e. Russian in langs list) is third from bottom.
But I'm unable to reproduce this with USB mouse. Looks like something is wrong
with ps/2 driver because I see random jumps even in Gnome after installation
(while moving window, it can jump to other side of screen). PS/2 mouse itself is
OK, if I boot RH8 on the same box.

Comment 3 Leonid Kanter 2002-11-22 16:32:12 UTC
on my box 8.0.90 installer is unable to detect serial mouse
(Logitech M-S48 "mouseman+" serial).  It proposes to select mouse type
from list,  but I'm unable to do it because keyboard controller become
completely frozen! If I boot RH8 installer on the same hardware -
everything is OK. 

I have 8.0.90 already installed and configured for PS/2 mouse on
this box. I saw problems during installation (bug 78344), and also
problems in GNOME (looks like ps/2 mouse is sending more events than
needed, so I have window jumps while moving etc). If I pull ps/2 mouse
off, connect serial mouse and reboot box, kudsu detect mouse change and
propose to reconfigure, but it's impossible to do it because keyboard
doesn't respond! BTW, after kudzu timeout it start responding again.

I have PS/2 mouse and the list did not jump when I clicked on Russian. Screen
was in 1024x768, I think.

Comment 5 Eugene Kanter 2002-11-28 23:12:22 UTC
The first language selection dialog is OK, but the second one does jump. Selected 
language is in the middle before the click. After the click it jumps so it is not visible.

Appears to be another variant of the XFree86 duplicate key/event bug ?
