Bug Description

Binary package hint: eog

This bug/feature request regards eye of gnome 2.28.1, which I'm running on ubuntu 9.10.

When the "Fullscreen with double click" plugin is enabled, and when viewing a large image full screen, there is is scroll bar on the right. Clicking the scroll arrows scrolls as desired, but if you click too rapidly, it counts as a double-click and the image reverts back to being displayed in a window.

The same applies when viewing in a window and scrolling, double-clicking the scroll arrows triggers the image to be displayed fullscreen.

Since clicking scroll buttons rapidly is pretty common, I think the desired behaviour for this should be that double clicks be ignored on the scrollbar and only trigger the fullscreen/window change when they are on the image itself.

This doesn't seem to affect ubuntu anymore, as the overlay scrollbars work correctly.
