Comment 1 Michael Gates 2011-12-31 20:41:48 UTC

Create an application that fires off some stuff into "Application Output." I used an app that throws an exception and doesn't catch it.

Make the MonoDevelop window fairly narrow, so that when the exception fires and its details are dumped into the "Application Output" pad, you'll need to scroll to see the whole width.

Run the application.

You'll get the MonoDevelop debugger window up, with "Application Output" flashing in the status bar at the bottom. 

Click on the flashing "Application Output. You should get the pad, crawling up from the bottom of the window, with colored scroll indicators at bottom and right.

Move the mouse down to the bottom scroll indicator. A scroll bar thumb will appear below the pad.

Move the mouse onto the scroll bar thumb. 

Your mouse cursor is now down in the status bar area, so MonoDevelop re-hides the Application Output pad! If you click fast, you can scroll the pad left/right for a couple of tenths of a second while it fades out of existence.

I suspect that the bug is in Gtk-- the thumbs should NOT be letting their mouse messages get to whatever's underneath them-- but it's showing up here.

What distro and GTK+ version?

This sounds to me like a bug in Ubuntu's "overlay scrollbar". The MD autohidden pads hide when they get a "mouse leave" event, indicating that the mouse has gone outside the pad.
