Description G.Wolfe Woodbury 2009-03-19 02:00:47 UTC
Using gpk under Fedora rawhide (F11 alpha) there is an annoying window margin flip-flop when selecting items.

When I click a package, the margin between the tree view (on the left) and the package list (on the right) "flip-flops" moving right, then back to the left.  The timing of the flip and the flop is variable (and occasionally absent)

The most annoying effect is that the checkbox in the list view (right pane) moves and the clicks are likely to miss the box.  Also, the mouse scrollwheel quits working because the cursor/pointer is suddenly in the left pane for a variable amount of time.


Workaround is to simply wait for the margin to return to its place, but this destroys the rhythm and flow of working with PK.  I often retreat to yumex.

(There is no PackageKit component in the RHat bugzilla.)

It is, on the "Search" page, --- hit the "Refresh Components/V.../M..." button when selected Fedora -> Fedora in the first two lists.
