|Subject:||GNUstep or X11 Problem|
|Date:||Wed, 21 Feb 2007 23:38:57 +0100|
Hello all,I have discovered a serious problem on our GNUstep desktop and am not sure - actually I have absolutely no idea - whether this is a bug in GNUstep back or a general problem of X11.
I start two GNUstep applications. In the first app I click on a button knowing that the operation behind the button takes approximately 10s to complete (some kind of complex export). During these 10s I can do absolutely nothing on my desktop. Under MacOS X I am used to simply activate another application in the meantime e.g. Mail.app or do some stuff in a terminal session. I of course can do nothing in application A as long as its main thread is performing some operation. But on MacOSX I can simply activate another app by clicking on its window and stay productive. Not so on my GNUstep desktop. I tried that with Window Maker, Enlightenment and GNOME and got the same problem with all three window managers. :-(
I suppose, this is a general issue of X11. Can anybody with more insight confirm this? Or is this a problem in GNustep back?
