#170 preferences window keeps resizing (flickering) with some wms

GTK+ (3)

Observed behavior: the preferences window keeps resizing rapidly, flickering very fast and using 100% CPU. I tested this using lives version 1.4.6, awesome wm version 3.4.11 on gentoo linux. The reactions in a bug report I found at the xmonad window manager's bug tracker (linked below) suggests it is a bug in lives' handling of window manager hints.

    Same question I just asked on there:

    Does it happen with all tabs selected, or only the first tab (GUI) ? In particular does it still happen with the Warnings tab (which uses a scrolled window to fit its contents) ? Does it happen with the Themes tab (which has only one sub widget) ?

    In LiVES svn most of the tabs now use scrolled windows for their contents so this may resolve the issue.

    I have observed this behaviour occasionally with the progress dialog but not in other windows.

    This was finally fixed in 1.6.4
