I suspect everyone is busy.

I also fear the bug tracking system suffers from version latency bloat. A

number of bugs that have been resolved are reported again as new
items. Many people work with the semi-stable developer's releases, and
these lag CVS to varying degrees. And while Xach's form has a link to
the current Changelog, it is not always easy to relate terse language
in the ChangeLog with observed behavior in a less-than- current
developer's releases.

Anyway, the following open items, I believe, can be regarded as
resolved or near-resolved and I vote for their closure; for the most
part they are related to patches I've supplied; I have not been able
to reproduced the original behavior since the application of related

Since then I have not been able to reproduce the crash; others are
welcome to test.

I upgraded to GTK+ 1.2.5 and that removed the artifacts I was
seeing. I sent a close request to [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Seth Burgess submitted #2879; when he upgraded to Gtk+ 1.2.5, his
artifacts went away as well.

[EMAIL PROTECTED] reported #2515; in separate e-mail he told me
that he was working with a pre-patched version at the time. I do not know

if he has upgraded and retested.

[EMAIL PROTECTED] reported #3059; I sent e-mail suggesting the
with #2384 and requested that he check again with a later version; I have

not heard from him.

Be good, be well
