Description Mark McLoughlin 2005-07-01 14:03:58 UTC
It would be really nice for Sabayon if two fixes for Xnest could be backported
to rawhide:

  1) Modifier state confusion:

     Basically, you Alt-Tab from Xnest and when you come back it thinks Alt
     is still pressed.

     The first patch has been committed upstream, the second patch hasn't
     been yet, but its trivial.

   2) Warning spew when using the -parent command line arg:

      Recent versions of Sabayon embed the Xnest window in a GTK window and
      we see lots and lots of

       xnest warning: unhandled event
       xnest warning: unhandled event
       xnest warning: unhandled event

      The patch is pretty trivial and has been accepted upstream.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2005-07-05 10:16:14 UTC
Please reopen the upstream bug reports linked to above, and nominate these
patches in X.Org bugzilla for inclusion in 6.8.3.  Once they've received
review and acceptance for 6.8 branch, we'll consider adding them to our

Note that FC5 will almost certainly ship X11R7 which will already contain
these fixes if they're in CVS already.  So the patches will only apply
to FC3/FC4 updates.

Also, once accepted into 6.8 upstream, if this is critical enough to warrant
RHEL updates for Xnest, please file a separate bug report against RHEL4
for each issue individually for Proposed-list tracking.


Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2005-07-11 12:24:39 UTC
Re-opened the upstream bugs and nominated for 6.8.x

Only really concerned about seeing these fixes in rawhide ASAP for Sabayon. An
FC3 update would be nice, but not so important. RHEL4 is not an issue.

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2005-07-12 11:24:25 UTC
Both patches committed to xorg-x11-6.8.2-43 in CVS.  Will be in rawhide
