Re: gnome-theme-manager ate my baby

Well, I can tell you right now, this happens to me every single time I
use the theme manager. thats right. every time. it doesn't kill my
system, I always stop it before then, but open it up, cpu hits 100%, and
stays there till I close it(or the system halts, as in your case). I
have yet been able to gdb down why it happens though.

This is one of many many problems, but several pertain to the preview
icon code I think. Like, sometimes on slower machines, or for no
apparent reason whatsoever all the preview icons simply kick back to
a ?. Not something I would want to see in supposedly more polished
release of the Desktop.

And I do I agree the whole thing needs a major overhaul, its got broken
functionality out the wazzoo, and more then one would prevent a release
in my opinion - example, with the 2.9 stain if I use a "custom" theme I
cannot scroll the list beyond whats visible. It bounces back to the top
when I try.
