(Jaunty) When clicked on conky, mouse position is sent to the left top corner of desktop

Bug #366811 reported by Cz-David on 2009-04-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
conky (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: conky

When conky is without decoration with own window every click made in the space of conky is sent to it's relative position on the desktop. Resulting in drawing a select rectangle from the left top corner of the desktop to the actual position of mouse cursor, in worse case moving some unsuspecting icon to it.
This happens with compiz and metacity.

I can confirm this behavior as well, I am not sure what logs I should be grabbing. All I can provide is a screen shot as well. Notice the pointer on the conky window

Can you guys check if you still have this problem with 1.7.1 which I just released?
If you are running 9.04 or 8.04 there are backports available here:

I have just updated to 1.7.1. The bug is gone. Clicking is going to the right position under the Conky. Thanks.
