Re: stuck pointer in dia-88.1 under wmaker

Hi Cyrille,

Thanks for the hints. I haven't instumented the dia code (yet? we'll see...)
per your suggestions, but do have a couple of interesting observations:

- I disabled gpm, and made X read mouse events directly from /dev/psaux,
  and the stuck pointer problem continued as before;
- I have been using the sawfish window manager for a week or so now, and
  have not had one stuck pointer.

So, completely anecdotally, it seems that dia and windowmaker can have a
slight disagreement that other WMs are not prone to having. I have run dia
quite a few times on another (desktop) system reliably with windowmaker,
so I know my problem is not a universal one. I would not be surprised if my
(laptop) mouse pointer creates some odd mouse event timings that cause
windowmaker and dia to wedge.

Thanks for the help.

My system:

- dia 0.88.1-1 (tried both debian package, and self-compiled from 
  8/15/01 CVS snapshot, with identical results).

I've got pretty much the same setup, except for the WM. Needless to say, I
can't reproduce this. I'm not quite sure gpm is the cause of problems -- it
works great for me.

I do have seen similar problems in Mozilla, though, when doing drag&drop
related activity. It is possible that we loose opportunities for focus

Could you place trace messages just before calls to gtk_widget_grab_focus()
in app/*.c ? 
Even better, it would be great if you could attache trace callbacks to all
focus-related messages sent by ddisp->canvas in
["focus-in-event","focus-out-event","grab-focus", etc.]

Good hunt.
