Libreoffice: artefacts on shaded instance when opening another instance #2

Hi,

I am on efl-current and enlightenment-current from git.enlightenment.org. Deleted previous $HOME/.e/ and $HOME/.elementary to get a clean default settings and theme for E.

The issue is that, when one instance of libreoffice is shaded, and I open another instance, the shaded instance produces artefacts. Nothing else is running. To cross-check, I tried under fvmw2. Not getting the artefacts there, which might mean it's not a driver issue (driver is amdgpu for a Radeon RX 560).

Please see attached clip, which shows how I produce the issue on E (clip is with my custom theme, E's defautl theme produces the same result).

Best,
kdato

(copy from other ticket which i will now close)

oh i now see what is in your shot. it's not garbage - its a shaded window. troug double-clikc the titlebar to unshade... it looks like it partly unshaded and that is the window content "squashed"

fvwm2 won't be a valid comparison as it doesnt composite or shade like e by squashing the window content into the title... :) how do you make it become partly unshaded?

Ah, I see.

how do you make it become partly unshaded?

The shaded window partly unshades automatically, when the second instance opens.

hmmm but shading/unshading fixes it right? iw onder if libreoffice is doing somethingh with netwm activate or focus like forcibly trying to impose some focus policy and that request causes the shading to stop part-way through animation?

Yeah, shading/unshading easily fixes it.

I couln't say. :) I played with E's Windows settings, tried all sorts of combinations. Made no difference.

I have more information regarding the issue. I.e., raster writes above:
"oh i now see what is in your shot. it's not garbage - its a shaded window. troug double-clikc the titlebar to unshade... it looks like it partly unshaded and that is the window content "squashed""

  1. When I disable auto-save in Libreoffice, it seems to hold steady in the shaded state. So, auto-save triggers the partial unshade and "squash".

  2. Recently I started to use three other programs: Audacity, Audacious and Celluloid.

--Celluloid: when a video is on pause, Celluloid partially unshades and "squashes" when the window loses focus; when a video is playing, the window goes into that state instantly

--Audacious: it happens in Qt mode on song change; in GTK mode, the shaded state holds steady all day long

--Audacity: refuses to go into a shaded state outright; in other words, when I shade the window, Audacity goes into the partially shaded and "squashed" state right away.

the apps must be doing something like requesting activation or something and this is interrupting the shading animation... but i've never seen that before in any app i use... :/
