Re: Mouse click processing delay problem in X

Hi!

I have a fresh clean FC2 with SELinux and found a really annoying thing
with the mouse in X ( GNOME Desktop ).

Sometimes when I click on window titlebar, move the mouse for example
upwards,
a selection rectangle appears on the desktop ( above the window ). As if the
click
was not correctly processed.

Looks like the click is noticed with some delay and the the current mouse
position
is evaluated and not the position when the click actually happened.

( by click I mean pishe the left mouse button and hold it, without releasing
it,
a standard "move the window with the mouse" operation )
This is not a "click". This is a "click & hold" and is used with "drag" features.
A "click" is a press & release.

If you do not already have focus on the window you are attempting to drag it will not select it for dragging. You will need to first "click" to set the focus, then "drag" to do the move.. Your descriptionn fits the situation where the title bar is not the window with focus.

Your description is symptoms I have seen on a lot of different platforms when the window where I do the "drag" does not have the focus so the action does a "select" on the desktop or other window instead and draws a box to outline the region selected by moving the mouse.

This is _very_ annoying. Is it a known problem ?

David
