Hint showing volume never disappears, blocking buttons to minimize, maximize and close

Bug #1810105 reported by Leonardo Müller on 2018-12-30

xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When hovering the mouse over the volume indicator or changing its volume using the mouse wheel it shows the current volume set as a hint. For example:

Volume 100%

The problem is that the hint never disappears, not even clicking on it. On some occasions the hint can cover the minimize, maximize and close buttons, causing significant problems on using the desktop environment, as these three buttons won't be usable anymore with the hint over it.

Where the hint appears it's no longer possible to interact with the screen.

I do not see this bug. Did you check if it affects another user account too?

Yes, it happens with a new user.

If I trigger this bug, returning to greeter with dm-tool switch-to-greeter, login with other user, use the other user account, log out, log in again to the first user, the hint is still visible.

It seems that this happen only if using the QEMU -device virtio-tablet-pci

It seems all other input devices make the hint disappear as expected.
