Hi, this may be the fault of fluxbox (though someone in #fluxbox didn't think so). I used gtk-recordMyDesktop and set a region of the current screen for recording. I clicked record and bad things started happening within the region: I couldn't interact with windows, and I saw some odd graphical effects.

On a hunch I switched to gnome and the problem went away.

    Hi,

    I don't know yet the reason, but I've reproduced the error.
    To the best of my knowledge, this problem only manifests itself
    under fluxbox(KWin 3/4, blackbox, unmanaged X work fine), but this doesn't necessarily mean that's it's the WM's fault.
    Anyway, I'll examine the problem and try to identify possible causes.

    Meanwhile, it seems that qt-recordMyDesktop and plain recordMyDesktop
    (0.3.7+ draws it's own frame) don't have this problem. So you might
    want to switch interface or go with the cli program.

    Also, please add the following information to this bug report:

    i) gtk-recordMyDesktop version
    ii) Graphics card and the driver that you are using.
    iii) gtk/pygtk version

    Thanks you for reporting this bug and helping
    recordMyDesktop improve :).

    Regards,
    John.-
