I have been informed, via the Claws mail users (e-mail) list, that the following issue may be Unity-related. Comments / ideas / suggestions? Thanks.
Often when I am editing or creating a Filter in Claws mail and I make a mistake, the Filtering window / dialog windows will not respond to mouse clicks (OK; Cancel). Hence, there is no way to close these windows.
I can minimize every window, Super-Window to see all windows on that desktop, etc., so a hidden window does not appear to be the issue. When this issue arises (often), the only way to get rid of these windows is kill Claws mail using the System Monitor, then restart CM.
Suggestions? Thanks ...
FYI: replies / followups, from the Claws User List (oldest first):
Reply 1 (another CM user). Stuff like that happens to me on Ubuntu 11.10 Linux all the time. It's especially annoying on the Quick Search search construction window, which if you do it slightly wrong, gives you an error message box with an OK that clicking does nothing to.
Reply 2 (me). This is exactly the behavior I am describing. It has been an ongoing occurrence / annoyance for some months (probably since some CM update).
Reply 3 (Claws mail development / support team). Do you use Unity? This seems to only occur when using Unity.
Reply 4 (me). Yes, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Unity.
Reply 5 (Claws mail development / support team). Unity is the problem. Not sure if we can do anything about that, but it doesn't look good.
