When i open a file in anjuta the contents of the file are scrambled across the
screen, often overlapping other text and sometimes blinking or moving across the
screen. When i move the mouse its gets re-scrambled, its very weird....
I dont know what to look at for more information, looking at the emerge logs, i
have recently upgraded x11-wm/metacity-2.10.3, x11-libs/libwnck-2.10.3,
My guess is that it could be pango, will keep looking for clues.
Steps to Reproduce:
I create a new user and the anjuta works correctly.
As the buggy user deleting the .anjuta directory makes no difference.
It must be one of the other dot files.
hmm, scrath my previous idea.
anjuta doesnt display a file correctly even on the newly creeated user.
A simple text file can display correctly, its the highlighting (selecting text)
or special code (eg c keywords) that appears to be driving it crazy.
trying to open ~/.anjuta/user.properties causes anjuta to crash.

Screenshot showing garbled text
As you can see from the screenshot the highleghted text isnt correct, its
supposed to be the GPLv2 text from /usr/kde/3.4/share/apps/LICENSES/GPL_V2
This also occurs on an x86 box.
This happens only since recently, probably after the update of a library anjuta
depends on, but I do not know which one...
could you please try with pango-1.8.1 instead of .2 and report back results?
Yea, downgrading from pango-1.8.2 to 1.8.1 fixed it for me :)
The same for me with 1.8.1-r1

Exactly the same problem occurs with SciTE on my amd64 box : with Pango-1.8.1,
all is correct, with Pango 1.8.2, any text restitution can become randomly
crappy. So the problem is somewhere between Pango-1.8.2 and the Scintilla text
widget... Where ? I don't know ! And my knowledge about both is alas very
poor... In my opinion Pango-1.8.2 should be hard masked.
The problems are due to a recent change that is not going to be reverted in
pango. The specific applications/libraries that relied on the old behaviour
will have to be fixed (I think anjuta already released a new version with a fix
for this problem).
For more information see http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=312075.
anjuta has already been fixed. Just waiting for anjuta-1.2.3.ebuild ;-)
