I apologize if this a duplicate report; I tried searching but was unable to find anything similar.

This problem does not occur in the stable 2008.8 and 2008.9 release images, but in the daily/testing images, or when updating a stable release using the testing repositories, the problem is reproducible at will.

The problem occurs when using GTK applications, specifically tested on apps such as the 'oh-puzzles' package games that originally came with the 2007.2 release.

When selecting one of the application's menus, and then either selecting a menu option or closing the menu, the main drawing areas for the app will not redraw, resulting in the menu staying drawn on screen until interacting with the game/app causes the screen to change and forcibly redraw.

Steps to Reproduce:

  • Flash Neo with daily testing image
  • Install 'oh-puzzles' package from repository
  • Start any oh-puzzle game; 'Net' is easiest to see trouble
  • Click on Game menu
  • Click on Undo
  • Notice that the menu stays visible
  • Click anywhere on game board
  • Notice that only the square clicked on is redrawn, and the menu stays visible elsewhere
  • Click on Game menu
  • Click on New
  • Notice that the space around the game board has not been redrawn and still shows the menu

I'd attach screenshots if I knew how take them on the Neo. If you need them, please let me know the easiest way to take them via SSH/terminal and I will attach them here.

Looks like a duplicate of #1946.

It does seem to be related/duplicate of #1946. I'll test the apps mentioned in the other bug and grab a couple screenshots when I get home from work.
