Description CongDong 2013-08-01 04:54:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Sometimes, after I leave full screen , I can't resize one of the two windows, and "Minimize Window" "Maximize Window" button on the title bar can't work too.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Prepare a machine with two physical monitors.
2.Create a rhel guest with spice+qxl+spicevmc
3.# remote-viewer spice://$ip:$port --full-screen=auto-conf --debug
4.Make sure can see the two displays of guest are full-screen on each monitor.
5.Click "Leave fullscreen", after leave fullscreen , can see two guest displays, check the title bar, and try to resize the window.

Actual results:
1. After leave fullscreen, can't resize one of the windows
2. The edge of the window looks sharp, but gnome windows are mellow.
But if drag the title bar to move the window, the edge will be ok.

Expected results:
After leave fullscreen, every window of guest should be ok, can resize it, and no sharp edge.

Additional info:
1. I can reproduce this with command "virt-viewer $guest" too
2. If I click "View->zoom->zoom in(or out)", then the window will be all right, can resize it as usual.

The window border and titlebar are drawn by metacity.

fwiw, I can't reproduce (0/10)

I remembered it could be reproduced easy, but I tried again today, and it's hard to reproduce, the frequency is about (2/40), but the problem is existing.
