I've posted this before but it seemed to fall on deaf ears. So here goes
I've got gimp 1.1.4 running with KDE 1.1 on both glibc Linux and Solaris
7 x86. About half of the windows gimp tries to open (most notably file
requesters) open kind of minimized. I say "kind of" because the icon
appears in the task bar, but the window name inside it is not in
brackets, as it would be if the window were minimized. When I click on
that icon, the window opens properly on my desktop. I can then minimize
and re-open to my heart's content, but the next time I try to open a
file, the window will again only open in the task bar.
This behaviour is the same on Linux, Solaris, and all versions of Gimp
from 1.1.1 to 1.1.4 with glib and 1.2, and it's _very_ irritating. If I
run the exact same Gimp binaries with OpenWindows on Solaris, everything
Does anyone have any ideas?
