gtk layout differences between 2007.2 and 2008.testing

Our application: http://gvsigmobileonopenmoko.wordpress.com

Displayed fine on 2007.2 running:

cacao: 0.98+hg20071001-r8
classpath-common: 0.97.2-r5
classpath: 0.97.2-r5
classpath-gtk: 0.97.2-r5

But fails to display properly on the latest 2008.testing with:

cacao: 0.99.3-r5.1
classpath-common: 0.97.2-r8.1
classpath: 0.97.2-r8.1
classpath-gtk: 0.97.2-r8.1

Most noticeable differences include the failure to draw the splash screen correctly (is drawn centrally on 2007.2 and in the top left of the screen on 2008) and any pop-up dialogues (in 2008 they often needlessly take up the entire width of the screen. The open file dialogue in 2007.2 is shown as two boxes, one on top of the other, whereas in 2008 they are squashed next to one another).

Upgrading cacao and classpath on the 2007.2 installation broke our application in a similar manner.

Almost identical problems were suffered when running the application with JamVM. The gvSIG application is available to anyone who would like to conduct testing.

When you say Gtk+ you actually mean AWT of GNU classpath implemented with Gtk+? If you want someone else to even consider looking into it you should create a reduction. The most simple java program exposing the issue (for every of your issues).

Thanks Zecke,

This small java application would display the file open dialogue on 2007.2, but not on 2008.x:


Juan Lucas, can we provide an example of the splash screen?

Thanks, Joseph
