Probably a dupe of #1948.

Probably a dupe of #1948.

And we already have this fix in dx-2

In Write's title widget it works fine on dx2 on XO-1/1.5.
m_anish: are there any errors in shell.log and activity log while you can reproduce the issue?

I briefly revisited old discussions on this issue and I did some thinking, and I think the following approach is sensible:

  • If the instance name textbox has the gtk.HAS_FOCUS flag, ignore all updates from datastore (don't update title)
  • Update the title widget with the new title if the datastore sends an update and the textbox isn't focused
  • Write the new title to the datastore on the focus-out event.
  • If editing the title then clicking the Stop button doesn't cause a focus-out event, and it can't be seen how to obviously make that focus-out event occur before Stop's clicked event is triggered, make the activity stop handler look for changes in the activity title and update the datastore if necessary

I think this should solve all the issues that were raised before, but I might have missed something.
