Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-04-03 23:33:34 UTC
Sometimes the MD main window behaves very strangely. The window decoration indicates that it has input focus, but GTK's state does not reflect this:
* the text editor renders the selection grey (unfocused) instead of blue (focused)
* the text editor does not render the caret
* all the items in the main menu is disabled menu is disabled, which likely indicates that gtk_window_has_toplevel_focus property is returning false for the main window

This can be worked around by focusing another app, then focusing MD again. Clicking on the window decoration does NOT work.

I am guessing this is very rare?

Basically GDK listens for the windowDidBecomeKey and windowDidResignKey notifications to update the current focus window.  You would expect that when the window decoration indicates input focus, GDK has received and processed the notification.  Of course, it is still possible that something else caused GDK/GTK+ to think that the window no longer has focus.

Do you have any indication under which circumstances this behavior is triggered?

I don't know of any repro cases. It may have been fixed by other patches. We can leave this bug in a NEEDINFO state until we get another report with the latest GTK+ builds.
