#2500 new defect

Sugar scrollbar location symbol in Pippy may be scrolled off the screen

Reported by: greenfeld Owned by: lfaraone
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Pippy Version: Unspecified
Severity: Unspecified Keywords: AU
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: New


It is possible to convince Pippy to move its console output window's scrollbar location indicator beyond the bottom of the screen. I do not know if this is a problem in Pippy or in another part of Sugar.

I saw this in F14/SoaS 0.90 with Pippy-38 added and in OLPC 10.1.3 os353 with Pippy-38.


  1. Start Pippy.
  2. Run a text-based activity such as "Pascal" to put some data on the screen.
  3. Click on the horizontal line between the code text area and the console text area. Click and drag it almost all the way up and down the screen while watching the scroll bar for said area.
    The rounded location indicator in the scrollbar periodically will go beyond the end of the screen, and stay off there if you release the mouse button while it is gone. One can get it back in a usable position by clicking in the scroll bar area to paint a new scrollbar icon, or resizing the console area again.

Testing in version 58 of Pippy, this poblems is still present. You can move the horizontal line below the toolbar, once is there you can only get it back by pressing the hide/show console button and manually resizing the console area.

I don't think this is a urgent issue, but might worth considering it.
