Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: gnome-panel
there's a drawer problem. When the drawer is on the edge of the screen
for a panel that's is set to autohide, it gets stuck when I try to
resize the drawer. If the drawer is open and its against the edge of the
screen, I would choose the properties and resize the drawer and it would
try to resize against the edge of the screen. It wouldn't work and then
it would put the size back. This would repeat and it would give the
illusion that's it's vibrating. It would keep doing this over and over
and basically freeze the machine.
* I'd have a panel that's against an edge of the screen. In my case it
was a panel on the bottom of the screen that's set to autohide but had
the buttons on the side to slide it to be hidden.
* There'd be a drawer on the edge of the panel, next to the edge of the
* The drawer would be open at certain size, 24 i think, and while it's
open I would right click the drawer at put the size to 48.
* This is where it would stick as it repeatedly tries to resize the
drawer and fails. The machine would freeze at this point.
** Affects: gnome-panel (Ubuntu)
