submenu expansion delay
Status in GTK+:
Status in gtk+2.0 package in Ubuntu:
In the top panel of the GNOME desktop, say I have clicked on the
"Applications" menu. This brings up a list of menu items. Now I move
the mouse pointer down to the "Internet" menu item and I expect the
"Internet" submenu to appear. However, sometimes the system will get
preoccupied with loading the "Accessories" submenu as I move my mouse
cursor past it.
Result: If it is still loading that submenu by the time my cursor has
reached the "Internet" menu item, it will take a second or two before
the system realizes that it has to expand the "Internet" submenu since
that is what my cursor is currently hovering on.
Expected result: The expected behavior is for the system to
immediately start loading whatever submenu the user's mouse pointer is
currently hovering on, rather than impose a delay if a submenu you
have moused over is still in the process of being loaded.
I consciously notice this issue most often in the Applications menu
and the System menu of the top GNOME panel. However, I suspect it is a
GTK bug and thus might affect any GTK menu in the system. This bug is
not a huge issue, but it is slightly annoying and does increase the
perceived latency of the menu system from the user's standpoint.
I am using libgtk2.0-0 2.12.9-3ubuntu4 under Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy
