Description of Problem:
Hovering over a variable in the debugger gives a popup in the upper left corner of MD
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Run application with a breakpoint in code
2. Hover over a variable in the debugger. In my case I've seen this with both class level and local scope variables
The popup with the variable info appears at the upper left hand corner of MD.
The popup should be at or near the mouse coordinates.
How often does this happen?
Every time I debug
I'm running Ubuntu in a VirtualBox install on Windows 7.
This is in all likelyhood a bug in Ubuntu. Works fine everywhere else.
what version of MonoDevelop are you using? What version of Mono? What version of Ubuntu?
I can't reproduce this with Mono 2.10.9, MonoDevelop 2.8.7, on Ubuntu 11.10
I was able to reproduce this on Ubuntu 11.10, but it only happened once. The next time I hovered over the exact same variable, it showed up where it should have. Haven't been able to reproduce since.
I can't repro on OpenSUSE so far.
I suspect it's a bug in Ubuntu's window manager.
It happens 100% of the time for me. I'm using Virtual Box to run Ubuntu 11.10. I believe I have Unity 2D as the window manager.
I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 in VirtualBox as well.
But what version of Mono and what version of MonoDevelop?
I built and installed my own:
* Mono from trunk of the mono-2-10 git branch
* MonoDevelop from git master
* mono-addins from git master
* gtk-sharp from trunk of gtk-sharp-2-12-branch
I'm running the master of mono as of last week. I typically update my MD every other day or so using the monodevelop-latest ppa found here:
I still can't reproduce...
I've tried using monodevelop-latest packages as well, still can't reproduce.
I've tried running monodevelop in fullscreen and non-fullscreen modes to see if that made a difference. Still can't reproduce.
I give up.
This is a compiz bug.
