Now that I am hacking Metacity as well, things are getting very interesting. Havoc nailed down the transient and non-transient dialogs misbehaving thing today. (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94876). Great stuff from him, no wonder he is one of most respected hackers :-). Also I need to convince Mark that the patches I gave him would solve 100 % CPU hogging of the panel, but that will take some effort. Hmm, still fighting the gnome-pixmap-entry bug about removing the focus from the preview, scaling the image and removing scrollbars. Anders suggested me to use GtkAspectFrame so as to take care of the ascpect ratio as well. Hopefully I should complete it next week. Okay, going back to work now...
