Description Vlado Potisk 2007-02-05 15:52:08 UTC
Description of problem:
There seems to be some undesirable interaction between clusterssh and KDE. After
switching desktops the position and sometimes also the size of the two X-term
windows change in some cases. That is really annoying, because it leads to
confusion which host is which.

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

How reproducible:
Sometimes. Not always, but often enough to reproduce it quickly.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open cssh sessions to two hosts
2. move the X-term windows to desired screen positions, e.g. one left, one right
3. switch to other desktop (screen) and back several times
Actual results:
X-term window position changed

Expected results:
Windows should remain in the original screen position

Comment 1 Duncan Ferguson 2007-02-05 19:29:34 UTC
This is known problem and is due to the perl/TK libraries not differentiating 
between a minimize/maximise event and a virtual desktop switch event.

I will recheck perl/Tk to see if this has changed recently.
