Hi, all

In my attached example.c, gtk_socket_add_id() is used to embed another existed xwindow into a GtkSocket. It works in fvwm or blackbox but failed in GNOME.

Can anybody tell me why this could happen? It's funny. Shouldn't gnome support gtk better than other wm?

Or maybe I have mis-configured my gnome desktop. Then what should I do to make it work?

To test my example:
1. gcc `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0` example.c -o example
2. use xwininfo to get a pre-existing window id
3. ./example <that window id>


Hey Cloudor

This sounds like metacity bug - it doesn't reparent window properly on
ReparentNotify. Please file a bug at against
metacity component.

Desktop-devel-list is more about generic discussions about desktop, you
can use gnome-devel-list next time.
