Description of problem:
Also check bug #97385 on bugzilla.gnome.org .
I commented out the offensive code, in case it's needed for other things
(unlikely, AFAICS) - basically, a one-liner.
ftp://go-nix.ca/incoming/gnome-panel-2.0.6-10.src.rpm are based on
gnome-panel-2.0.6-9.src.rpm as distributed with RedHat 8.0, with an extra patch.
I'm hoping the GNOME people (I sent the patch to GNOME bugzilla about 23
minutes ago) will pick it up. It's a small fix, so they should.
Here's the patch file itself:
Hope this helps ...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Bring up the Run dialog box.
2. Type "mozilla google.ca"
3. Watch the icon in the dialog box shift back and forth between the default
"Application" icon and the mozilla icon as you hit each key after "mozilla"
Actual Results: The application icon displayed switches back and forth between
the default icon anf the mozilla icon, causing the dialog box to jitter (the
width keeps changing back and forth).
Expected Results: The application icon should only change when the calculated
application name changes.
Thanks for the patch, I'll just track this on gnome.org to save
paperwork. Closing here. We'll get the fix with next gnome-panel release.
