 Hmmm...  Looks like we need a couple more beta releases before 1.2. ;-)

Simon and me are currently at the Systems'99, and, well, we probably need
a lot of couple of beta-releases ;) gimp seems to have a lot of small
problems like the selection going away after some time and not coming
back, refresh problems (a lot, but difficult to reproduce) on all our
machines, and the return of the "w-src  w-bytes * ..." warning.

I guess most of us just ignore these problems, but just how difficult
would it be to fix this? Are we (simon and me) currently the only ones
having these prblems?

Selection going away: http://bugs.gnome.org/db/10/10498.html "Marching Ants die 
untimely deaths"

I regularly observe the selection disappearing when I use the Wacom Tablet, and
setting it as an input device through Image-Device Input. I have not observed
it otherwise.

Do you recall if your incident is purely/partially tablet related?

Thank you.

Hmmm...  Looks like we need a couple more beta releases before 1.2. ;-)

But I am wondering...  What's the point in maintaining a Gimp-specific
help browser?  I routinely compile the Gimp on several machines
(shared or private, running Solaris or Linux, and located in different
countries ;-)) and the most common configurations are:
* Basic system or KDE system that has Glib, GTK+ and some other
  libraries but no GtkXMHTML library.  On these systems, the help
  browser is not built so everybody uses Netscape for the help pages.
* Gnome system (using HelixGnome or the version of Gnome supplied with
  the Linux distro) that has many packages installed, including
  GtkXMHTML but also the Gnome help browser.

I have never seen a system that had GtkXMHTML installed and did not
also have the Gnome help browser.  Wouldn't it be easier to use it if
it is availble, and to stop maintaining the Gimp-specific help browser?
There could be a compile-time option (or install option) that installs
the appropriate version of the help files depending on the help browser
used (regular HTML browser like Netscape, or Gnome help browser).

 bex here.  I'm all done proofing all the files in the CVS.  So get out
 there and write some more!!  I think there are a ton of holes yet

 the files already in there.
 So it isn't MY fault anymore if 1.2 is delayed!
