Bug Description


Place component.

Select a footprint. PCBNew hangs.

It appears to get stuck when a paint event generates some sort of mouse event (with an ID I couldn't find) which in turn generates a paint event, etc. etc.

@devs, I fixed this on OSX by conditionally compiling a GTK-specific bug fix. However, I'm not sure which side MSW should fall on (or if it's agnostic), so if someone could test it on MSW that would be great.

@Jeff- This probably affects 5.1 as well.

@Seth, no this was only introduced a few days ago:

Some guy named Seth.... ;)

:) Yup. Pretty sure the same schmuck cherry-picked it back to 5.1 to fix a bunch of GTK scrolling issues.

D'oh. Not sure why that didn't occur to me. ;)

Cherry-pick on the way....
