Hi!

Since i installed the new bzr version of the dock yesterday i'm experiencing a strange problem. After some use of the dock the cursor doesn't match with the hovered icon anymore. Here is a screenshot:

http://s5.directupload.net/images/100428/px6eqeiw.png

The mouse cursor wasn't captured when i made the screenshot, but it was at the middle of the firefox icon. But as you can se the mail icon is highlighted. If i wanted to start firefox, i had to move te cursor to the right side of the firefox ico(outside of the dock).

I als noticed that there are some small coulored pixels between the last two icons on the left side of the dock. They look like very small docks.

Has anyoe experienced the same problem? The dock i nearly unusable now. Maybe i screwed up a setting or something else.

Thanks.

didn't you play with the horizontal offset in the "Position" ?
maybe the dosk's window in out of the screen and is moved by the WM to fit the screen and then it's not where it should be.
just a guess from me, as I don't experience this.

My horizontal setting is 0,5. So this can't be the cause of the problem.

I think i found th cause. Everytime i change the theme of the dock and close the theme-manager window a small cairo-dock icon stays in the dock(You can see them in the screenshot above between the last two icon of the left side of the dock). These icons seem to be treated like normal sized icons and so the other icons are not at the right position. But why doesn't the theme-manager icon dissappear from the dock after closing the window, but instead stays there as a very small icon?

EDIT: Every application that was started from the dock remains as a small icon in the dock after closing the application.

I haven't selectedany special animation. When i middle click an icon in the dock to close the application it gets smaller. And now it stays in the dock as a small icon.

If i use an animation from the illusion plugin the icon still dstays in the dock as this annoying small icon

I went back to version 2.137 of the Dock. The problem still exists. A few days ago version 2.137 was working fine. Maybe the problem is caused by one of the docks dependencys?

Maybe, what's your WM? (Compiz, Kwin, Metacity, Musca, etc.)

I confirm the bug. I thought it was so obvious that fab would have fixed even before I would have talked about it

On my side, I'm running Compiz+xfwm4, Archlinux (everything is latest version), bzr from yesterday (bug appeared two days ago), NVidia. I can't even click on logout (second icon from the right side of the dock) :-/

I didn't change the configuration of the dock since some weeks, but it may be that an upgrade of the config file went bad. I'll try to check tonight (if I'm back home not too late)

I also use Arch...maybe an Arch Package Update is to blame? I can confirm that the bug exists since two days ago.

thanks for the hint !
although I don't see where it can come from
and of course I don't have it

Edit : anything in debug mode when the icon is about disappearing ?

I can't debug it right now, I'm at the office. But tonight I'll try to look further into this problem.

Bug fixed: it was a weird failure in a comparison. Something like:
x=0.05
if( x == 0.05 ) then...


the "if" statement never made it to the TRUE result. A simple cast like:
if( x == (gdouble)0.05 ) then...

helped him to reach the Heaven Of Bug-Free Code.

fixed thanks to Tofe
since you had the problem with the 2.1.3-7 which was working before, it's most probably due to an update in your distro (maybe gcc, considering the weird bug we found)

@Tofe
Where exactly do I need to make the changes? I mean, in which config file?

It's not in a config file but in the source code. Should be fixed now
