GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 315157
double click on cpu freq scaling monitor makes panel hang
Last modified: 2007-07-14 14:32:41 UTC
Distribution/Version: Ubuntu Breezy
I have the CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor applet in the gnome panel at the top of
my screen. When I double click this applet, the mouse pointer changes in a hand,
and the panel hangs completely, e.g. I cannot open the the Applications menu
anymore by clicking on it.
I'm using Ubuntu Breezy:
ii gnome-applets 2.11.93-0ubunt Various applets for GNOME 2 panel - binary f
ii gnome-panel 2.11.92-0ubunt launcher and docking facility for GNOME 2
I can't reproduce. Can you still reproduce with 2.12? Also, is it the same hand
as the one used when you move an applet?
Yes, it's the same hand as you get when choosing move in the right click menu.
But I cannot move it and all clicks (even in other applications, etc.) are
ignored, and I have to kill gnome-panel to stop the problem. Still happens with
up to date Ubuntu Breezy packages of Gnome 2.12.
Ok. It looks weird. If you double click with the left button, then I'll assume
it's a gnome-applets bug. Moving there.
Reopening so Davyd can look at it ;-)
Reported here as well: http://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/show_bug.cgi?id=16142
Notice that both this report and the ubuntu report are both occuring on X86_64
arch. Maybe it's arch specific?
I can confirm that it doesn't happen on i386.
Bug stil present in Ubuntu Dapper AMD64 with these versions:
ii gnome-applets 2.13.1-0ubuntu3 Various applets for GNOME 2 panel - binary files
ii gnome-applets-data 2.13.1-0ubuntu3 Various applets for GNOME 2 panel - data files
ii gnome-panel 2.13.4-0ubuntu1 launcher and docking facility for GNOME 2
ii gnome-panel-data 2.13.4-0ubuntu1 common files for GNOME 2 panel
Another Ubuntu bug about that: https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/gnome-applets/+bug/41258
I'm on x86 and have this happen. Although I don't even have to double click and single left click will do. Most of the panel becomes locked, the menus work though. Right clicking the panel and selecting about makes the panel responsive again. I use dapper with latest everything. Also see: https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/gnome-applets/+bug/41258

I've rewritten most of the applet. Could anyone check if the bug is still present in cvs head?
It's not present here.
I can confirm it's not present in 2.16.1 under amd64 platform.
Ok, then I'm going to close it. Thank you all for the help.
