Contact List Not Docking Correctly

Reported by: drinkteaxreadbooks Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.10.11 Keywords: contact list, docking issue


I suspect this is an issue with Windows 8.1, but after recently downloading and installing Pidgin I noticed that the contact list does not appear to dock "correctly" as seen below:

When docked, it gets placed under the taskbar instead of snapping to it and overlaps the browser. Consquently, when the browser is focused on, it overlaps the docked contact list:

  • Component changed from unclassified to winpidgin (gtk)
  • Owner changed from EionRobb to datallah

The docking functionality has a number of known issues that are not easily fixable due to the interaction between GTK+ and the windows API and is pretty much unmaintained.

Patches are always welcome to improve it.
