SOFTWARE VERSION: (Control Panel > General > About product) 1.2009.41-10 STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: goto "settings-> Screen calibration" EXPECTED OUTCOME: ACTUAL OUTCOME: When tapping on the screen (on the small targets or somewhere else) in the calibration application small white lines appear through the text in the middle of the screen. REPRODUCIBILITY: always EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: OTHER COMMENTS: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/2009090216 Linux Mint/6 (Felicia) Firefox/3.0.14
Thanks for reporting this! Confirmed.
I noticed similar artifacts when using the pdf reader: -goto More...> PDF reader -open the "maemo_software_copyright" file in the Documents folder -goto full screen mode (lower right icon) -use the arrows on the hardware keyboard to scroll up and down (press up two times for example) you will notice that the "full screen" toggle icon on the lower right gets similar lines through the icon. (or is this a different bug?)
(In reply to comment #2) > (or is this a different bug?) That is a different bug (and a WONTFIX according to int-121867)...
I'm also seeing this in various third-party apps (for example EightyOne, GPE Sudoku and a self-compiled claws-email). So I think the PDF reader one is related, and the real bug is probably at some lower level. Even if it's WONTFIX some documentation on how developers can avoid it would be welcome.
This has been fixed in the internal build version 2.2009.46-16. (Note that 2009 is the year and the number after is the week.) The internal ticket actually refers to several places in the User Interface where this happens - this specific issue seems to be fixed in week 42, but all issues should be fixed by week 46. Any public update released with or after this build version will include the fix. Please verify that the new version fixes the bug by marking this bug report as VERIFIED after the public update has been released and if you have some time.
The problem reported here should be fixed in the update released today for public: The Maemo5 update version 2.2009.51-1 (also called "PR1.1" sometimes). Please leave a comment if the problem is not fixed for you in this update version.
