Description Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-16 14:17:12 UTC
drag-and-drop is broken in any GTK+ app with x11-libs/gtk+-2.10.7; please mask this thing.
Comment 1 Patrick Ohearn 2007-01-16 14:24:35 UTC
Confirmed, has anyone filed upstream yet?

See URL... (the upstream summary is wrong)

I'm completely unable to reproduce this in any app I've tried, including firefox.  I don't have thunderbird available, and that's the only app mentioned.  Can someone give me an example of a program that fails?
Comment 4 Daniel Gryniewicz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-16 18:57:19 UTC
Okay, so far, only certain types of dragging in mozilla-based programs are failing.  Everything else seems to work fine.

Example: in firefox, I can drag links around, but I can't drag bookmarks around.

Well, example - broken in www-client/mozilla-firefox, mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird, net-ftp/gftp - simply doesn't work...

Okay, I've masked gtk+-2.10.7.  Hopefully upstream will fix this...

For the record, gftp works fine for me.

Reopening apparently needs a comment
Comment 8 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2007-01-16 20:54:56 UTC
Added patch to revert the bug fix that caused regression for the most probably broken mozilla libraries, as we can't exactly fix mozilla-firefox-bin and other -bin's. 2.10.7-r1 should be fine now for thunderbird, mozilla-firefox and seamonkey.
The reverted bug fix is a more of a corner case, more at the upstream bug URL (including details on how mozilla libs are broke).

Thanks, d'n'd works again with this patch...
