>Summary: Info gets \"stuck\"

Initial Comment:
If I hover above a name long enough for an info window 
to pop up. And then double click the name to initiate 
chat, and my chat window is large enough to cover the 
buddy list. Then the "popup info" gets "stuck" on top of 
everything. And it doesn't go away. It will stay there 
indefinatly. The only way to make it go away is to bring 
the buddy list back on top of everything else. and then 
hover the mouse above someone elses name, and then 
move it over the boundy of the buddy list.

The problem is that the popup info of users only 
disappears when the mouse crosses the boundy of that 
user's name. However, if I open something up the covers 
that boundry, i have to reenter it and leave it again for 
it to disappear (instead of it disappearing after X 
seconds of not hovering above that name).

Its annoying to have that float above everything, and it 
can stay there indefinatly. With the fact gaim brings up 
the info popup so quickly, I ALWAYS get one when I 
attempt to initiate a chat session with someone, and 
always have to go and get rid of it.

In the picture attached, you can see the box containing 
info about a guy whose nick is "ubermouser". It will 
remain there, covering up my chat window, indefinatly.
This is a picture of my whole screen (i did not crop it to 
show just the relevant parts. just so you understand 
what is going on better, this is after all a placement 
issue), it happens because I stretched the chat box to 
cover the buddy list. The bug never occurs if I dont let 
it cover it (which is prolly why it wasnt found yet).

The bug also doesnt occur if I use alt+F4 to close the 
buddy list but did not open a window. However, If I did 
open a new window, and then I use either alt+f4 or in 
another other way close the buddy list without ever 
hovering any of the contacts in it (just the boundries of 
it, and the X button for example), it will not go away.

our installer distributes it, and a couple other things like
aspell, as a convience, but were you on unix you would get
gtk separately. gtk is developed at gtk.org, it is a general
toolkit for creating graphical interfaces with.  on win32,
gimp (gimp.org) also uses it.

I was under the impression GTK was a part of gaim... (Gaim TK)

technically the earliest one would be over a 600000 numbered
one, amost 400000 bugs earlier than yours. but they were
mistakenly closed anyway, the policy on this tracker is
different from the other trackers, since the resolution does
not depend on gaim's development, but on gtk's.

Did you intend to remove the attached picture when you 
changed it from gaim bugs to GTK bugs?

Is it actually removed or do I just not have access to it?
