#1915 new defect

double-click on tray icon doesn't always show buddy list

Reported by: sambrightman Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.5.1 Keywords:
Cc: Dawudd, haridsv


If Pidgin in the system tray and the buddy list is closed then double-clicking on the icon doesn't show the buddy list if the taskbar doesn't have the focus. By this I mean that you have clicked in another application, on the desktop etc. Note that if you return the focus to the task bar by clicking anywhere on a blank portion of it (or start menu, once on tray icon etc.) then the double-click will work. Nothing appears in the debug window for a failed attempt to show it.

I think that you're seeing this GTK+ bug and the scenario is slightly different than what you're describing. (I can't recreate it with the steps you've specified.)

You're right, those steps don't always work. I'm sure they used to... very odd. It definitely reproduces if you give another application the focus, even if that application doesn't cover the whole screen/area where buddy list would be as per

1) Have buddy window closed 2) Focus on another application (with mouse, alt-tab doesn't reproduce) 3) Double-click tray icon 4) No buddy list

As before, if you first focus on the taskbar/systray then it will work as expected.

With Pidgin 2.2 at least, this bizarrely now needs two other application to receive the focus before trying to open the buddy window. It's still just as irritating - you check buddy list, go off and use other applications, double-click system tray, and nothing shows. It really does seem to be a focus issue - if you click on a blank area of the system tray first then double-click works immediately regardless of what you have done in-between.

I can't seem to reproduce this on 2.5.0 - is it still an issue?

This is still an issue with the weird two-other-applications requirement. With a closed buddy list, I click on my browser, mail, double-click the tray icon - nothing happens.

By the way, that's with 2.5.1. Am I supposed to bump the version?
