I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 and after splitting a single tex document into multiple files I noticed a strange bug. Here are the steps to reproduce the problem on my machine:

  • Opening Kile, it automatically restores the files that where open on last use.
  • Switching to a different open file, either by clicking on the tab or using the Alt+Left/Right keys.
  • About one second later the panel content disappears (except the program's title 'Kile') and the menu bar is integrated into Kile's program window.
  • Another second later, the panel again fills up with it's original content (in serveral steps) and the menu is reintegrated into the panel.
  • The same happens on opening or closing files - which automatically changes the selected file tab - when there is more than one file open at a time.

My system is up-to-date and restarted the computer but the problem persists.

Now my questions:

  • Does anyone know what could be the reason for that?
  • Where could I find log files to track down this problem?

The same story here. At this stage no cure is found. –  01es Oct 24 '13 at 13:02
