Bug Description

Budgie Extras is a set of python based applets that are either preinstalled or are available to be individually installed. They are exclusive only to budgie desktop users and cannot be installed or run on any other desktop environment.

A number of issues have been raised since the 18.04 release. As part of ongoing 18.04 support the Ubuntu Budgie Team proposes to wrap up fixes on a very targeted basis. In this series of SRU's we have wrapped up DR's that have been classified as LOW by the UB dev team. In addition the scope of the change has been assessed to limit the potential of regression. This is to ensure each SRU request is strictly limited in scope with the risk(s) being easily determinable.

This is the master SRU for this and the following defects where are also resolved:



 Reported via our discourse support forum: https://discourse.ubuntubudgie.org/t/two-small-issues-sticky-applet-window-missing-shutdown-button/247

 “popup menu for usb drives”-applet can occasionally become stuck on its popup position and cannot be closed without logging out and logging back in.

 The impact is for Ubuntu Budgie only and anyone running the budgie desktop together with the DropBy applet.

[Test Case]

 1. Using Budgie Settings, check that on a panel that the DropBy applet has been added - please note, the dropby applet is installed through the package "budgie-dropby-applet"
 2. Insert a USB pen-stick
 3. A popup window will appear on the panel - this is the drop by applet
 4. Dismiss (close) the popup window by clicking elsewhere on the desktop i.e. move the focus away from the popup window
 5. Repeat steps 2,3 and 4 several times. In each and every time the popup menu should be dismissable.

[Regression Potential]

 * The worst case scenario is that the panel applet does not correctly start or function correctly when a USB stick is inserted. This can be mitigated easily by removing the panel applet via Budgie Settings or uninstalling the applet via command line/ Software Center

 * The OP who raised this has tested this for a week and verified the fix in a test PPA
 * Ubuntu Team has independently verified that the fix works by constantly checking the test case repeatedly.

The change looks good, but since it's low importance I would recommend batching it up with another fix.

An upload of budgie-extras to bionic-proposed has been rejected from the upload queue for the following reason: "As discussed - change is good and passes SRU review, but I recommend batching it up with another upload due to its low-importance. Thank you!".
