Description Remi Collet 2007-01-28 10:07:05 UTC
With all latest updates :
- thunderbird-
- glib2-2.12.9-1.fc6
- gtk2-2.10.8-1.fc6

Drag and drop of message from right panel (message list) to left panel (folder
tree)  doesn't work anymore.

The rollback to
- glib2-2.12.3-2.fc6
- gtk2-2.10.4-4.fc6
solves the issue.

Comment 5 Russell McOrmond 2007-02-02 18:58:23 UTC
Please note that this is for both Firefox and Thunderbird.  I rebuilt from SRPM
both of these packages adding in this simple patch, and it fixes the problem for

Hopefully the Fedora folks can get updates out there quickly -- this is a pretty
simple thing to get fixed.

It's been built for a few days now in rawhide and fc6 updates.  But the Fedora
guys that sign it haven't pushed it out as an fc6 update.  jkeating said he
would try to get to it this weekend...
