Re: When UI Enhancements go bad...

I'll submit a bug, assuming inhibiting resizing dialogs is unintentional. But there are other issues. For instance, with pinned modal dialogs you can no longer move a stacked dialog window to reference the one behind it. This is clearly part of the imposed behavior, and consequently another headache when I use Eclipse. I don't mean to rant about this, but it pains me that I may not use something as good as Gnome-Shell because design decisions start to actually get in the way of me getting work done!

No, that's a fair question. The Shell radicalknowly changes the behavior
of dialogs, thus it may unveil small issues in apps that weren't
experienced with other window managers because they behave very
similarly in that regard. It's possible that the windows that don't work
with the new design should be set up differently by Eclipse. Of course,
it may also be a problem with the Shell, but you cannot be sure in

I think some of the Shell's developers are using Eclipse, so they should
be able to debug this problem. Else, you'll have to provide screenshots
and run 'xprop' on the incriminated dialogs so that they have enough
information. Anyway, a bug report is probably a better place for this
kind of thing.
