#3 Capture frame color inconsistency

Gtk2 GUI (20)
David Liontooth

In the new GTK2 GUI, the initial gray frame is expanded using a red frame when you use the selector. The resulting frame is a mixture of the initial gray and the subsequent red lines.

    It's probably a good idea to keep the red color -- the gray used (inconsistently) by the new GUI doesn't stand out enough.

    The frame is meant to be always red and always on top.
    Can you please provide the command line parameters you are

    When I start gvidcap I get a small gray frame -- the same color as the background of the toolbar.
    When I use the selection icon, the new frame as it were uses the old gray frame and then adds red for
    the extra parts. When I move the frame, it instantly turns gray again. It looks like GTK sets it to a default
    color (perhaps?), which in my case happens to be gray. Configuration file below.

    I found the source of the problem -- libgtk2.0-0 2.2.4-1. After updating to the latest 2.2.4-2, the frame is consistently red.
