Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Initial mouse-over events show correctly, but press events do not, and release events outside of the original area are not processed either. This is only for mouse buttons shown in the unity panel - everything displays properly when on a floating window decoration.

Will provide more details if the symptoms are not easily reproduced, but otherwise it's all quite evident. Only a cosmetic bug, but it does look sloppy for such a common component.

Steps to reproduce:
a) Click and hold mouse button on one of these window buttons...
b) ...then move cursor off button whilst still holding mouse button...
c) ...then release mouse button and move mouse either back to or off of the unity panel (or launcher).

Expected window button appearance:
a) 'Down' state.
b) 'Up' state.
c) Still 'Up' state.

Actual appearance (when window maximised):
a) Remains on 'mouseover' (highlighted) state.
b) 'Down' state.
c) Still 'down' state until mouse moves on to or off of panel/launcher, then 'up' state.

11.04, unity 3.8.12-0ubuntu1

Could you state the problem more clearly please, I'm finding it hard to understand exactly what it is that's going wrong. What do you mean with "window buttons"? And what do you expect after the mouse events? (marking incomplete for now)

Sure. By 'window buttons' I mean the close, minimise, and maximise buttons. Functionally, everything works fine, but the appearance of these buttons upon mouse clicking is not as expected:

Example actions:
a) Click and hold mouse button on one of these window buttons...
b) ...then move cursor off button whilst still holding mouse button...
c) ...then release mouse button and move mouse either back to or off of the unity panel (or launcher).

Yes, there is a bug here.
