Workspaces skipped when wrapping when the pointer reaches the screen edge wit...


Description umkowa17 2005-01-09 23:04:07 CET
When the Window Manager option to "Wrap workspaces when the pointer reaches a
screen edge" is enabled, and the Edge Resistance set to the smallest available
value (or close), workspaces will often be skipped over when changing between
them through that method.  It does not happen when changing workspaces through
other means, including dragging a window or using keyboard shortcuts.

When it is to skip a workspace is somewhat predictable - I have 4 workspaces set
up, and if I keep travelling to the right workspace, wrapping around, it will
skip over my third workspace every second time.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable 4 workspaces
2. Enable "Wrap workspaces when the pointer reaches a screen edge"
3. Set "Edge Resistance" to the smallest value
4. Quickly and evenly move the pointer to the right, observing the graphical
pager or another visual cue.

Actual Results:  
On many occasions workspaces were skipped.

Expected Results:  
Each workspace should be visited

I'm using the AMD64 deb packages (4.2 RC3) in Ubuntu from

It seems that how quickly it is done doesn't really matter.  Moving the pointer
to the left and to the right enough times will activate pretty much any workspace.

I'm not seeing such a problem here.

I've double checke, that should not happen unless PointerMotion events are sent
more than once. Can you preproduce that problem on i386? Could it be related to
a bug in X on AMD64?

Sorry, after a crash and reboot I can no longer reproduce this bug.

Reporter is unable to reproduce, so this can be closed.
