Description Wiktor Wandachowicz 2005-08-02 05:46:48 UTC
In recent KDE 3.4.1 there's a regression bug with Quickstart applet, which shows
itself when icons inside needs to be repositioned. In KDE 3.2 and 3.3 all that's
needed was to click on such icon, hold the button and move the icon to the right
place on the applet's space.

However, in KDE 3.4.1 a copy for dragged icon remains in the old place. So, to
rearrange icons, they have to be dragged and an old copy needs to be deleted.
It's not a real problem, rather aesthetic, but there was no such behaviour
before. So, from a usability point of view this of course is a bug. Just a
little annoying, to be honest.

I can confirm that this problem can be observed in both x86 and amd64 stable

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -av kde-meta
2. Log in to X
3. Right-click on the panel, select "Add" -> "Applet" -> "Quickstart"
4. Drag any icon into another location on the applet's space

Actual Results:  
A copy of the icon remains in the old position, while a new copy can be dragged
as desired.

Expected Results:  
There should be no multiplication of icons in the quickstart applet,
it should work just as it was in KDE 3.2 and 3.3.

Most probably this is a general, upstream bug.

BTW, if you need any information about my configuration (make.conf, USE flags,
emerge-info, etc), just drop a line and I will happily add it.

Yes, this is probably not Gentoo specific and was just reported here:
