Description Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2011-09-21 16:19:30 UTC

Open MD.
Click on the File menu.
Click again to deselect.
Move the mouse to the toolbar, over the "Create new file" button at the left.
Notice that the tooltip shows up, but the button doesn't respond to mouseenter (it doesn't get the square around itself).
Click (but don't move the mouse out of the current toolbar button) - nothing happens.
Click furiously - still nothing.

Move the mouse one button to the left (the open file/solution button). The button does now get the square when the mouse enters the button, and clicking works as expected.

What it looks like to me:
When clicking in the menu, MD loses focus. Clicking on the "Create new file" button activated MD, but the button doesn't do anything when it is clicked, because the mouse never entered it (it just magically appeared inside it - and apparently the mouse must enter the button for it to be clickable).

This is actually pretty annoying, it happens several times per hour.

Seems to work with the new GTK.
