Should I file a bug for this issue? I don't know if it is a bug or an expected side effect of my configuration. I have not been able to reproduce it under normal conditions. The issue is in Freeciv trunk SVN revision 22295 compiled with delta disabled and fold_bool_into_header turned of.
To reproduce, run the server with the compression turned of. Start the gtk-2 client. Then go to the research dialog. Left click the researching or the goal pull down. Keep the mouse button down while slowly moving the cursor to the option you want to change to. The pull down's focus should now briefly jump to the originally selected tech before it jumps back under your mouse. I suspect this is related to the client constantly sending the packet PACKET_PLAYER_TECH_GOAL or PACKET_PLAYER_RESEARCH when the research dialog is open. This causes the server to respond by sending a PACKET_PLAYER_INFO (containing the recently "updated" information). I don't know where in the gtk 2.0 gui code (or general client code) they are sent from. I don't know the delta protocol beyond what I have read in README.delta. (I don't recall reading anything about it stopping packets not containing any new information) I therefore can't tell if this is a side effect of my configuration or a bug triggered by it. -- Sincerely Sveinung Kvilhaugsvik _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivfirstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
