#2 1.9.x: xpad ignores right-click


Starting with 1.9, xpad seems to ignore right-clicks on
pads, ie. no context menu pops up. CTRL + right-click
to resize the pad works fine, though, as does
left/middle-click for copy/paste. After quitting xpad,
there's still an xpad process running, which doesn't
react to anything but 'kill -KILL'. Running 'xpad -v 2'
from the command line didn't reveal any problems
AFAICT, removing ~/.xpad didn't help, either.

I'm running Slackware-8.1, linux-2.4.19, XFree86-4.2.1,
and self-compiled versions of icewm-1.2.6 and
gtk+-2.0.x (upgrading to gtk+-2.2.x is not an option
for me yet, unfortunately).

    Dang, d00d. That's too bad.

    Ok. So, it doesn't matter where you click on the pad? What
    if you click on the border of the xpad (assuming you make
    one)? The toolbar?

    I'm not sure why xpad would freeze on exit... I'll look
    into it.

    Nope, simple right-clicks just don't register, no matter
    where I click (the pad itself, border, toolbar). One more
    thing I just noticed is that xpad *sometimes* also doesn't
    respond to the "Exit" button on the toolbar, while it still
    does respond to CTRL-Q (but it leaves the xpad process
    running after closing the pad in this case). The other two
    default toolbar buttons ("Delete", "New") work fine. Strange
    ... some kind of race condition maybe?

    I really am coming up dry on this one. I'll keep it in
    mind, though, and examine the code for ideas.

    The problem seems to be gone in 1.10.1, xpad now works fine again as usual. Feel free to mark the bug as fixed and close this bug report. :-)
