Description Sven Gothel 2015-10-10 02:58:32 CEST
Johann Sorel reported that using XFCE
a NEWT Window changes its previous position 
when resizing it programmatically via setSize(..).
Comment 1 Sven Gothel 2015-10-10 03:05:36 CEST
  - xfce 4.10.1
  - xfce4-goodies 4.10
    which includes:
    - xfdesktop4 4.10.2-3
    - .. and a bunch of stuff

.. using all default settings

on Debian 8, using Mesa3D software rendering.


This bug could not be reproduced via: 
 TestGearsES2NEWT w/ command line args:  
  -manual -time 1000000 -rwidth 500 -rheight 500 -x 200 -y 200
  -manual -time 1000000 -rwidth 500 -rheight 500 -undecorated -x 200 -y 200
  -manual -time 1000000 -rwidth 500 -rheight 500
  -manual -time 1000000 -rwidth 500 -rheight 500 -undecorated 

XFCE only changed the window position, if it doesn't fit
on the screen anymore from its current position.

Closing for now, please reopen w/ a details reproducible description.

Minimalist test application

In this tiny application the program catchs the mouse events and resize the frame.
The frame 'jumps' everywhere on the screen at each resize.
