Well yes someone could look into this. Now I believe that's a
Windows-only problem, right? So we come back to our problem of lack of
Windows developers. Also there is not technically a bug here, so that
makes it less urgent compared to other bigger bugs. Don't make me
wrong, there is obviously a problem. But that only happens because
some other programs are apparently messing with system events. And
they reckon also that that's a bug on their side, as showed
So on our side, that's more of a "bypassing other program's bug"
issue. Well it would still be good if someone did it. :-) And we are
aware of it and don't intend on putting all the blame on others.
But I just wanted to relativize the issue and why the chances of it
being improved in a fast way by any of the GIMP developers are slim.
But we welcome developers wanting to help faster on this, come on, we
don't bite! :-)
Also I asked somewhere but didn't get any answer: does anyone who have
the problem also have other GTK+ programs? And if so, do you also have
the problem on the other GTK+ programs?
This information is important as it could help us to target more
efficiently if the issue comes from GIMP or GTK+ code.
