Summary: Pop ups do not disappear in windows

Initial Comment:
Running Gaim 1.2.1 on Windows XP SP2 (and this bug
existed in 1.1.2 and 1.1.3 as well), pop up windows
(such as the user information pop up on the buddy
list), and the tool tabs on the actual im window (send
file, send, remove, enlarge/shrink font, etc),
sometimes do not disappear in windows.  I have run both
the included GTK 2.6.2 rev a, as well as a GTK 2.6.4
installer I found for Gaim.

This error does not crash gaim for me to provide you
with a backtrace.

The GTK 2.6.4 seemed to make it harder for the popups
to not appear, but they still do.  Once a pop up has
appeared, the only way to get rid of it is to move the
mouse back over the button/buddy that caused it to
appear.  Doing so will clear the popup.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Install windows gaim.
2) move mouse over buddy list until just before popup
3) alt tab to a non-minimized/maximized window that
does not overlap the buddy list.
4) popup will appear, you will tab to the new program
and the popup will stick.

If it doesn't happen, keep trying.  You need to get the
timing right.

Keep in mind, this is not the only way you can get the
pop-up to stay, it's just the easiest I know of to
reproduce.  There are many scenarios that can get it to

Windows XP Professional
Dual Intel Xeon 2.8
Nvidia quadro

Also, this issue exists on every windows box I've seen,
which is roughly 100 in the office (using different
install images)...  so it's not just a corrupted thing
on my box.

If you need more info, feel free to let me know.  I
would be willing to help in almost any way, including
working with a developer to test to see if the issue is
fixed for them.  Just let me know how I can help.

This is not a Gaim bug, but a bug in GTK+, the widget toolkit
used by Gaim.  Your bug is being moved to our "gtk bugs"
tracker, where it will be grouped with similar bugs.
