Description David Jaša 2013-06-06 16:17:02 UTC
Description of problem:
dialog asking what to do with new message should pop up over window that received ctrl+q/File-Quit, not over concept window, and it should be highlighted

This is similar to bug 810460 - evo seems to do noop instead of requested action.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have a main window and a New Message window opened, each on separated desktop and have main window focused
2. tell main window to quit the whole application (ctrl+q or file - quit)

Actual results:
* a pop-up is issued:
  * over the New Message window
  * without any highlight
* main window gives no indication of what's going on whatsoever

Expected results:
* the best thing: just save the messages quietly and quit, restore the messages quietly on the new startup
* the next best things:
  * highlight the pop-up window in WM
  * bring the pop-up on top of the window that requested evo to quit

hanging evo bt

The issue is somewhat worse if you issue another ctrl-q/File-Quit while the pop-up is waiting elsewhere - evo then shows all window widgets as disabled and it does not respond to any input anymore. The attached backtrace is of window in such state.
