#1999 closed defect (fixed)

Object Chooser appear in front of activities that are being launched

Reported by: rgs Owned by: bernie
Priority: Low Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar Version: 0.88.x
Severity: Major Keywords: security isolation
Cc: tomeu, walter, jasg, mabente, km0r3, sascha_silbe Distribution/OS:
Bug Status: New


Test Platform

  • Sugar 0.88
  • Fedora 11
  • XO-1

Steps to reproduce
1) open up Write
2) call the Object Chooser to choose an image from the Journal
3) leave the Chooser open and go back to the Home View
4) launch a new activity (i.e. Terminal - it probably reproduces with anyone)
The Bug
While the activity you chose in step 4 is launching it will be blocked by the Object Chooser. This shouldn't happen (right?).

It is not sugar issue but activity, I found this in, at least, TA (#2002) and Write (2001).

IMO this is still a Glucose bug - buggy activities shouldn't be able to disturb other activities.

However it isn't high priority for now: There are many other ways activities can interact badly, especially since Rainbow integration still isn't working well enough to be enabled by default.

This bug does not occur with the object selector of ImageViewer and JukeBox.

The issue in Write was resolved (tested in version 74)

If there are other activities not setting the parent id, should open bugs for that activity.
