Description of problem:
GTK2 Lists behave strangely when selecting an item within the list...

To name a few examples of the problem, the Xscreensaver configuration tool,
where you select which screensaver to preview, try using the slider to somewhere
near the middle of the list and select one of the items in the list(I scrolled
to where I can see the "Lament" item in the list, and pressed that one) and
immediately was kicked to "Attraction" via "Anemone"... Trying again
works(Unless you restarted the application).

The same problem is seen in Anaconda(graphical)... An example is where you
select the system locale... Same symptoms - See bug #82380 for more info on this

If this is truely a GTK2 problem, which i very much suspect, since it's the
exact same problem in multiple GTK2 apps, it's rather critical, so i'm setting a
higher priority for this one. If you don't agree with this, please change it to
something more appropriate.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start "Screensaver" from the preferences menu in Gnome
2. Scroll the list of installed screensavers by clicking or dragging the slider,
so that the slider is near the center of the bar.
3. Click on one of the items in the list and watch closely what happens

Actual Results:  The item clicked is not the one selected, the list is scrolled
to the top and a different item is selected. Trying again makes it work.
Restarting the application and trying again makes it sick again!

Expected Results:  The clicked item should be selected!!!

What version of gtk2? (rpm -q gtk2)

rpm -q gtk2 says: gtk2-2.2.0-3

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2004-05-13 05:25:16 UTC
This works fine for me with gtk+-2.4.0
