Gimp's color selection resets when the point leaves and returns to the window after using wacom tablet.

Bug #367698 reported by Carey Underwood on 2009-04-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gimp (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gimp

Gimp seems to be keeping track of the palette state separately between the mouse and the stylus. The palette state switches to one set of settings as the mouse cursor leaves and re-enters the gimp window, and then switches back to another as the stylus touches the screen surface. This is disruptive, as the gimp palette is on a second screen that isn't accessible to the stylus.

Architecture: i386
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 9.04
