Description Jan Arne Petersen 2006-11-19 21:52:16 UTC
The GtkRecentChooserMenu should not use pdata->loaded_items as a count to number the items but the count of really shown items. See attached screen shot.

Please consider backporting this fix to the gtk-2-10 branch.
Comment 4 Emmanuele Bassi (:ebassi) 2007-02-09 16:04:57 UTC
if someone gives it more testing in the unstable branch and verifies that the
bugs are indeed closed, I will.
Comment 5 Vincent Geddes 2007-02-10 12:28:40 UTC
I have tested the bug fix and can verify that it works.

Glade uses GtkRecentChooserMenu and suffers from this bug. After testing Glade with gtk+ trunk, the bug disappeared.

I tested GtkRecentChooserMenu under a variety of cases:
  * An empty recents list
  * Clearing the recents list
  * Adding an item to the recents list
  * Removing old items off the list by adding new items from another application
