GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 762412
screenshot with 'select a region to grab' sometimes produces spurious frame lines

1. Klick 'File' -> 'Create' -> 'Screenshot...' -> [X] 'Select a region to grab' -> 'Snap'
2. Grab a region of a pdf viewed with envince, i.e. press the left mouse button, move
the curser, release the left mouse button, possibly slowly or moving around a bit
before you release the left mouse button.
Desired result: While dragging the mouse there is a rectangle indicating the selected
region. After releasing the left mouse butten there is a screenshot of the region.
Actual result: While dragging the mouse there is a rectangle indicating the selected
region, but in about 50% of the cases it happens that the lines are not properly removed
again when moving further. After releasing the left mouse butten there is a screenshot
of the region that includes one corner of spurious lines, leftover from the indicated
I just got the same on first try on master. I guess the times of XOR drawing
on top of the desktop are finally over, it was about time.
Now we just need a solution that works :) But definitely not on 2.8
because it likely involves ditching the X11 code in the screenshot plug-in.
