tree twisties in evo's tree view stop working after clicking GtkStatusIcon
Last modified: 2014-01-02 05:23:13 EST
Description of problem:
Small down arrows (I hope they are called "tree twisties") in tree view in Evolution stop working after som time of using Evolution.
Any suggestion how to debug it will be appreciated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start evolution and use it for some time
2. try to wrap/unwrap some submenus in Evo's tree view on left
cant wrap/unwrap submenu
This is a GTK+ issue:
Something to do with the interaction between GtkStatusIcon and GtkTreeView.
Never got fully investigated by GTK+ maintainers. We stopped using GtkStatusIcon about the time we ported to gtk3 and the problem went away on its own.
I tested the proposed upstream patch and indeed, it fixes the issue. I suggest to include the patch into the gtk2 update.
The patch has landed in GTK2 upstream, so it should be fine to include:

GtkTreeView: make tree expanding/collapsing more robust
gtk_grab_remove() *after* we did the expanding/collapsing, otherwise
grab_notify() might kick in and mess with our state. Fixes bug #675835.
