windows contents not being properly updated with compositor


Description Rodrigo Virote Kassick 2005-01-19 02:23:23 CET
Windows that change their contents (like nautilus 'connect to server' dialog or
gthumb's "import photos" dialog) are not being properly updated on screen when
compositor is activated. The window displays the new widgets over the old
contents of the window.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open nautilus
2. open file/connect to server
3. change the "service type" from ftp to ssh and then back to ftp 

Actual Results:  
the buttons apear over a non-existent label 'name of the new connection'.
Shading and unshading makes the screen be properly updated

it seems to be a problem of windows add or remove widgets dinamically.
