Cannot type & panel flickers


Description Dale Gallagher 2006-08-10 12:08:18 CEST
Occasionally (At least once a week), the ability to type characters within any application disappears! Also, when I try to switch workspaces using the mouse, nothing happens (but I can using a keyboard shortcut). I can't figure out how to reproduce this bug (yet). At the time though, Mozilla Firefox (, Thunderbird ( and  a slew of terminals (Terminal are usually open. Finally, when trying to logout of Xfce (in order to reclaim my keyboard), clicking on the logout button causes it to visibly flicker (the button) without doing anything.

This is "possibly" related to?

Comment 2 Dale Gallagher 2006-08-15 12:13:11 CEST
I can confirm that the typing issue is related to bug 2136.

However, the panel logout button flicker has not occurred since my original bug report, so will leave this bug open until I'm able to confirm and/or reproduce it.
