I am also having problems with animations. Email and music applets seems to have been broken once the animation starts there is no way to stop them.

@taiebot: and do you have this bug after having restarted the dock? (and relaunch these applications)

icons are animated until the dock hides (not until the application opens).


yes, when the dock hides, all animations stop
maybe we should relaunch the animation if an icon is launching ...

I click a second time the icon is animated until the dock hides

so it means myData.bIsRunning is FALSE ?

Yes, maybe but the main problem is that the animation should stop when the application opens (or after a timeout).

I only have this bug when the dock is launched at startup (no problem if I relaunch it after).

so it means myData.bIsRunning is FALSE ?
I can check but it's maybe due to something else? (because the animation is not stopped)

I think that when I click a second time, there is an animation (because I click on an applet) and it continues because gldi_icon_is_launching() returns TRUE, no?

yes it stops after a timeout (that's the bug I fixed recently)

it seems to be working correctly for me (for instance, try with a command "sleep 20 && program-to-launch", don't forget to define the class then)

I'll try later (when I'll be using my computer )
