Re: [gtkmm] sensitivity seems to be 'ignored'

Hi all,

ok, the attachment holds a short C++ example file (
I also did a pure GTK+ version of it (buttons.c) - same trouble.
Example usage (after compiling and starting):
click "cool button" - uncool button set insensitive, click it anyway
wait some seconds until uncool button is sensitive again
look at console output: the uncool button's event got processed
even though that button was insensitive.
Because this trouble is also with GTK+ should I ask at that
mailing list too?
Or does someone know a workaround?
Any help/suggestions appreciated! Thanks.
Jeffrey Rush.

Even when you don't click on it a 2nd time? That sounds very strange.
Maybe you could give us a simple example to reproduce this behaviour.
Ideally you would also check whether it happens with pure GTK+ code.
