Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

When wanting to take a screenshot and setting a delay, the window just closes and nothing happens until the screenshot is taken. There should be a window informing the user of the time remaining, so he doesn't think that the application just closed without taking a screenshot.

I just filed a bug at GNOME's bug tracker. Hope it will be useful!

PS: Should this be in the Hundred Paper Cuts project?

Thank you for your bug report, you can open an hundredpapercut task if you want though it seems rather a feature request than an hundredpapercut and their project doesn't lack candidate bugs right now quite the contrary

Oh, okay. I guess you're right, it's a feature request rather than a bug.

After further thinking, I added a hundredpapercuts task, since it's a usability bug.
