I realized while working on #12241 that the parent parameter passed to the Add setting dialog was not used to make it transient for the main window. This issue should be fixed in greeter:feature/12247-replace-lists-of-if. If this branch cannot be merged on time for 3.0, I can backport the fix.

#9 Updated by intrigeri over 2 years ago

#12247 was resolved, but I think I've seen the problem again, and anyway: since then Alan set #12364 as the parent so I guess that means he agrees the problem is not fully fixed.

I haven't seen this happening in 3.4. Has anybody else seen this happening (@goupille?) If not we might consider closing this ticket and reopening it if necessary.

Lowering priority as this does not make anything dysfunctional.

I don't think many people would report such "aesthetic" issues to help desk.

intrigeri, since I think you're still using the same libvirt setup: is this still happening?

I'm not 100% sure but I think I've seen it recently.
