I've spent about four hours trying to fix the background color problem on the color preview when using a GTK theme based on the pixmap engine, and I've found that it can't be worked around. The mailing list archives have a thread discussing this, and they conclude it is a bug in the pixmap theme engine.

The pixmap theme engine is reportedly really hacky, so nobody wants to touch it. That's also why the newest KDE runs GTK Pixmap-based themes faster than GTK can.

In conclusion: GTK is nice, as long as you don't want to anything slightly nonstandard. :)

Please note that if you're not using a pixmap-based theme, this message doesn't apply to you.
Current CVS LoserJabber is once again a release candidate.
The color preview now applies to your username, as Brad requested.

hrm

sad. wish GTK was cleaner.

looks good, though.

my only suggestion would be to have "dirty" flags on all windows and don't do network requests if you don't have to ... if user never changes the foreground/background color when editing a friend and hits "change", the windows client just closes the dialog like they hit cancel.

also: the add friend dialog box is coming up with the "Add" button enabled. however, if you press any key in the username box and hit backspace, then it goes disabled. when adding, you should just disable it right away.

bug..

if i do history and edit a journal entry and save the changes and click ok.. it goes okay so far, but if I click edit/view again the same entry the time goes back to 1969. Trying to save the entry gives back a message 'invalid year' from the server. bug or is my computer time traveling ?

Re: bug..

Ah, fixed. Gimme a bit before I commit it to CVS, though.
This code must have never worked... we must've never noticed it before.
