Description Roel van Dijk 2003-04-10 10:59:35 UTC
When I select some text in konqueror the systems stops responding to input. To only 
thing that keeps working is the mouse cursor. But I can't click on anything. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start konqueror 
2. Go to 
3. Select the first alinea of text by dragging the mouse over the text 
Actual Results:  
Everything except the mouse cursor freezes. The system doesn't respond the mouse 
clicks. I can't switch to a TTY with "CTR+ALT+F1". Keyboard input is ignored. 

Expected Results:  
Just select the text so I can copy/paste it.

I suspect that the bug is caused by the combination of qt and kde. See also the output 
of emerge -p qt 
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

here it works,  try to upgrade to xfree 4.3 but i don't know if this can fix problems. Also, 
would be useful to know which video drivers are you using for your graphic card 
Comment 4 Denis Treskunov 2003-05-23 01:30:06 UTC
If you are using Nvidia drivers, try disabling RenderAccel by adding 'Option "RenderAccel" 
"false"' line to your /etc/X11/XF86Config file, under Section "Device". This fixed the crashing 
problem for me. I didn't notice any slowdowns at all.

Did this fix the problem?
Comment 6 Randy Roesler 2003-06-25 22:58:20 UTC
Noticed the same behaviour when trying to display the web page 
Comment 7 Andrew Cooks (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-11-24 07:17:18 UTC
I was unable to reproduce the problem. Can it still be reproduced?
Comment 8 Roel van Dijk 2003-11-24 23:45:25 UTC
I now have KDE from CVS and xfree 4.3.0-r3 and I can't reproduce the bug anmore. So I guess it is solved.
