windows dragged in the pager disappears after killrestart of xfwm4


Description Alexander Toresson 2005-11-20 08:57:11 CET
After a killrestart of xfwm4, and then dragging a window in the pager, but not
from or to the current workspace, the window just disappears.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a window open on a workspace that ain't the current workspace.
2. Kill xfwm4
3. Start xfwm4
4. Drag the window you kept open to another workspace using the pager, but not
to the current workspace.
Actual Results:  
The window disappeared

Expected Results:  
It should not disappear

Should be fixed in SVN now, all branches.
Comment 2 Alexander Toresson 2005-11-21 09:47:08 CET
Sorry, your fix doesn't fix it. The issue is still there and there's no
difference from before.
Comment 3 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2005-11-21 19:38:43 CET
Humm, works for me.
Comment 4 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2005-11-21 19:44:26 CET
what "xfwm4 --version" gives?
Comment 5 Alexander Toresson 2005-11-21 20:45:55 CET
I carefully watched the output of q-collective's script that downloads xfce from
svn, and saw that it failed to compile xfce4-dev-tools. After making automake
1.9 the default instead of 1.4, it compiled fine.
I don't know how these things were connected, but at least your fix works now. I
deleted the old xfce source I had, forcing it to do a full re-checkout again,
which may have affected things too.

Fixed then.
