Description Pedro Villavicencio 2007-09-27 17:21:20 UTC
This bug has been filled here:

1. Assign tasks in Evolution
2. Click on the clock applet
3. Pick a task and double-click on the percentage in front of it.
4. Change the percentage and press Enter or click outside the box

If I double click on the percentage, the field changes and appears to become editable, but any keypresses are transmitted to the window below."

looks like a window manager issue rather, if you ctrl-alt-tab to the dialog the actions work correctly
Comment 2 Sebastien Bacher 2007-10-04 13:52:09 UTC
The bug has been confirmed using openbox or metacity 2.18, that's likely due a clock-applet change
