IF the option "Attach selection frame" is enabled (lock icon) and select a window or rectangular region, this selection position is modified.

    could you please provide more information on this?
    Like:
    - What are the steps to reproduce the problem (1,2,3 ...) with pre and post states
    - What is the window manager you use?
    Cannot reproduce. If I start xvidcap and have the lock enabled, select an area either by clicking on a window or by drawing a rectangle, the rectangle stays where it is and the control moves.

    I'm using Ubuntu Feisty. The default window manager is Metacity (I think)

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Open XvidCap
    2. The lock is enabled
    3. Click on the selector tool
    4. Click on the window and automatically the window is selected
    5. As you can see in the attachment, there is a little offset (-5, -5) between the selection and the window borders.

    Also I wonder if the lock feature is useful :/

    There are two things here:
    1) a small horizontal offset which may be due to metacity interpreting the movement coordiantes differently as compared to beryl, e.g. or it may even be a bug here (will research that.)
    2) I've seen worse placement oddities with lock and window selection due to window managers overriding the placement of the main control window as it follows the selection frame. This has been a major nuisance in the past and some of it appears to linger.

    In the past, the lock and moving around the control was smth. I personally used a lot. Now that we have the draggable frame, it may not be worth that much anymore and a potential candidate for removal. I'll raise a poll in the Help Forum.

    This seems to be fixed as a side-effect of the fix for bug # 1952636.
    Please test again with current SVN.

    Not really. If you select and unselect some times the same window, the bug is reproduced. Also I jave noticed that the "lock" function is always actived staying the lock button actived or not.
