Bug Description

When I hover with the mouse over the main toolbar, about
15 degrees of sky above the horizon vanishes. Not critical;
returns to normal when I move the mouse.

Stellarium 0.12.4; Mac OS 10.6.8 (But I believe I've also
seen the problem in Ubuntu Linux.) It's as if it's failing
to recognize transparency in the landscape (Default --
somewhere in France.) Problem occurs only when "Satellite
Hints" is enabled; perhaps I have too many satellites and
storage is overlaid. Problem vanishes if I copy in
config.ini from a different system. I'll attach my

It appears the problem arose because I marked every satellite
in the lists as "displayed" (but I didn't select "show orbits").
Silly me?

In case you still want to consider the behavior a bug, I'm attaching
my entire configuration directory. It reproduces the behavior when
I unpack it to a new user ID.

Can you attach screenshot with the issue?

Thanks. Hard to take a screenshot; moving the mouse restores the normal appearance.
Today, the screen only flickers a few times, then returns to normal.

I suspect an interaction with the OS X Dock, which I keep on the bottom where
it may overlap the Stellarium menu bar. Putting the Dock elsewhere alleviates
the problem.

You may call this priority low.

Thanks again,

I can't recreate this on either of my Mac's.

Is this still open with 0.14?

Thanks. Apologies for the delay.

Alas, my hardware level (Old MacBook) keeps me at an OS level that
keeps me at 0.12. Eagerly waiting for it to break so I can get a new one.
