Description David Balažic 1999-12-03 16:00:51 UTC
GNOME desktop :
If I click on the GNOME menu ( i believe this is its name ), actually on
the icon and when the menu appears I click on "Logout" , nothing happens.
This happens only if I do the two clicks fast.
Maybe GNOME misunderstands the two clicks as one double-click ?

It probably happens with other menu entries too, but I didn't try.

I installed RH6.1 from the ISO image from ( .cz mirror
actually )

This is a small GTK+ bug that I now have a patch for that
I'll be putting in the Red Hat GTK+ packages in Raw Hide


Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2000-02-04 16:14:59 UTC
Patch now applied to the package.

	* gtk/gtkmenushell.c (gtk_menu_shell_button_release): Set
	the activate_time to 0, so that we handle a quick
	press/release press/release properly and don't suppress
	the second release. (Red Hat bug #7545)
