2-click mode drops pieces
Binary package hint: gcompris
My young kids prefer to use the "2 clicks" mode when playing GCompris on a laptop without a mouse in those games where you need to drag and drop pieces, for example in "Locate the Countries" or Chronos.
In recent versions of the game this has become problematic, especially on computers with more modest graphics hardware. The problem is that the piece being moved may lag behind the mouse pointer when moving the pointer too fast (which isn't fast at all on my laptop, and at least reproducible on a Core i7 with Geforce 460 graphics). As soon as the piece lags behind so much that the pointer gets located outside the bounding box of the piece, the piece stops following the pointer, and rests at the current location until the pointer is placed on it again.
This behaviour was not present in older versions, but I can reproduce it in at least versions 9.0-0ubuntu7 and 9.3-1ubuntu2. This is unfortunately a definite showstopper for acceptance from my kids.
The bug is present in at least Ubuntu 10.04 and 11.04.
