Description Robert Nichols 2005-05-01 22:03:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
Ethereal's "Open Capture File" dialog includes a button that opens the
"Display Filter" dialog, but when the Display Filter dialog opens, all
keyboard and mouse events still get passed to the Open Capture File dialog,
leaving no way to interact with the Display Filter dialog.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Ethereal and click on the "Open a capture file..." icon.
2. In the capture file dialog box, click on the "Filter" button.
3. Try to do anything in the Display Filter dialog box that comes up.

Actual Results:  The Display Filter dialog is unresponsive to mouse clicks.  Even while the
mouse cursor is in the Display Filter dialog box and its frame is highlighted
indicating that it has the input focus, keyboard input can be seen to afffect
the parent Open Capture File dialog.

Expected Results:  The Display Filter dialog should receive keyboard and mouse events.

Additional info:

Using a Gnome desktop (gnome-session-2.8.0-4).

Seems like a GTK+ problem, File chooser dialog grabs all inputs.

If the file chooser dialog is modal, any child dialogs that are popped up from
it must be marked as transient for the parent and as modal as well, in order to
receive input.

Fixed in ethereal-0.10.14-2. Matthias, thanks for hint.
