Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

1) Release of Ubuntu:
Description: Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS
Release: 10.04
2) The version of the package:
  Installed: 1:2.30.2-0ubuntu0.2
  Candidate: 1:2.30.2-0ubuntu0.2
3) What I expected to happen:
I'm using nvidia twinview (with two displays), therefore i have two gnome-panels running at the bottom of each display. In each panel is running a window list. The window list should update itself in each display automatically showing only truly running programs.
4) What happened instead:
The window list displays minimized applications which have been previously closed and shouldn't be displayed anymore. Clicking on these minimized non-existent applications, maximizes other truly running applications that should've been displayed instead of the previously closed ones.

Thanks for the report, do you get the same on Maverick?

Actually i am not using maverick, so i cannot tell. But what i can tell for sure is, that i have experienced the exact same behaviour on Karmic (the 32bit version).

There is one more thing i would like to add: the panel clock hangs very often, it just freezes. I have to navigate to the clock settings via the context-menu and change some settings (weather, seconds) + change it back, so the clock is able to update itself. This has happened, as the bug mentioned above, only in dualview-mode. Maybe there is a connection between those two incidents.

Kind regards,

Stefan ~~

i've tested it with maverick64, getting exactly the same. Let me know if you need anything more from me in order to reproduce the bug. And, since i haven't heard anything for weeks now, it would be very kind if somebody could have a closer look on this issue.

Kind regards,

Sorry guys, but your behavior is disappointing. You do not react in any way for month and let this bug expire.

Why do you want users to collaborate with you, when you do in fact just nothing in return?

Sorry, but that sucks.
