Bug Description

indicator-datetime 0.1.98-0ubuntu1, Ubuntu Natty
indicator-datetime 0.2.0-0ubuntu1, Ubuntu Natty

1. From the clock menu, choose "Time & Date Settings...".
2. Check "Time in other locations" (if it isn't checked already).
3. Click "Choose Locations...".
4. Click the Add button, and type "wellington". Press Down until "Wellington (Wellington, New Zealand) is selected, and press Enter.
5. Open the clock menu.
6. Close the "Locations" window.
7. (Once bug 741686 is fixed) Click "Choose Locations..." again.

What happens:
5. The new location is not in the menu.
7. The new location is no longer listed in the window either.

What should happen:
5. The new location is shown in the menu immediately.
7. The location is still in the window.

I'm guessing that in step 4, you didn't choose an entry from the list, you just pressed Enter or some such. You have to select from the list (just like you do in Ubiquity) or it doesn't take. That would explain issues with step 7.

Step 5 is just because locations are only saved when the location dialog is closed. Straightforward enough to change that.

I did choose an entry from the list. So this is not just about saving locations when the window is closed; as far as I have been able to tell, there is no way of saving them at all.

Can you try both choosing an entry with your mouse outside the location list and choosing with your mouse inside the list?

I think I'm seeing a bug with gtk not emitting the 'match-selected' signal when the mouse is inside the list? That would be surprising though.

(sorry, to be clear, use your keyboard to actually choose the entry, I'm just curious about whether your mouse was hovering over the list at the time or not)

I can still reproduce this, just not consistently. It's always been when I chose Enter, but I haven't been able to narrow it down more than that yet.
