2.6.8-p2 on Snow Leopard - if I click Cmd-` (backtick) Gimp immediately stops responding to mouse movement and and keystrokes. The only way to get it back is to kill it (losing all the data). Can anyone else replicate this or is it a weirdness on my machine?
Cmd-` is the X shortcut for "Cycle Through Windows". Oddly, selecting the item from the X menu works as expected - only the shortcut causes the lock-up.

  • I can't reproduce this.
    On my system (10.6.4, X11 2.3.5, german keyboard layout) 'cycle through windows' is 'CMD' + '>' and this works as expected.

    What X11 version are you using? If you use the one from the XQuartz Project, AFAK there were some issues with the keyboard layout there...

    Ack - you're right: XQuartz 2.3.5 (xorg-server 1.4.2-apple53)
    This wasn't deliberate - I thought I just installed the vanilla one in the developer tools.
    Oh well.
