In install panel if you click on the checkbox of a plugin it's description appears and disappear immediately
which plugin reproduces this?
This is related because it is the same side-effect. If you try to use arrow keys and spacebar, each time a plugin is selected in the install panel, the current item is reset to 1 and you can't "go to the next" plugin in list with keyboard anymore.
I tried to debug this but the control flow is not obvious and I was having difficulty figuring out why
certain code was being executed. Shlomy tried and also got a bit lost in the control flow. This is a tricky bug that requires advanced debugging skills.
Fixed in revision 22633. It required a very complex and tricky fix :)
your fix improves things in that you can n ow read the description after checking a checkbox, but you still can't use arrow keys and spacebar to select a bunch of plugins because the current item gets reset to 0 after each checkbox toggle.
Ah, keyboard. I didn't test that.
Same issue exists with update panel too.
Alan, try the update I checked in in revision 22658. I believe this fixes the issue you mentioned last with keyboard handling.
looks like you fixed it! thanks! --alan
