XFCE strange mouse grapping behavior and mouse offset


Description torkildj 2012-07-14 13:48:38 CEST
When using GTK application as gThumb og Audacious. When holding left mouse button around toolbar area, it will enter grabbing mode, this works fine. However after having moved the window and put it where you want, then left clicking (for interacting with the program) anywhere inside window will trigger grabbing mode again (why? seems very strange behavior) and this time the mouse will have a huge offset compared to the window its moving around. Sometimes the window is so far offset that it will be outside the visible area of the screen. I have not been able to find any related setting that i could change to make this behavior go away. If you use the titlebar of the window for moving window, this behavior does not happen.

Using Fedora 17 (64bit version). Bug observed using several different machines with different graphical setup
1. NVIDIA official driver
2. radeon opensource driver
3. on VNC desktop without any acceleration

I have attached a video of the problem. Hope you can figure out what is happening.
