12 * GTM uses gnome-config which has bugs that can cause data loss
because it not backup the configuration before rewriting it.
Therefore, it is possible to partially or totally lose config info
including file lists if the application terminates at the wrong
time (larger file lists are more likely to do this), or if you run
out of disk space. This could be vastly reduced by storing the file
lists elsewhere, and reducing the number of gnome_config_sync calls
for large file lists.
14 * Files can be selected such that the application will work as if none
have been selected and actions will not work. All of the circumstances
to reproduce this are not known, although one circumstance is doing a
shift selection and making the pointer leave the file list widget
before raising SHIFT. Possibly some GTK+ bugs here.
15 * When a file is being downloaded of unspecified size, a non-sensical
"estimated remaining" time is displayed.
16 * When the properties dialog is open and a file is downloading, the
dialog continually brings itself to the front, and the cursor in the
text field continuously moves to the start of the field.
17 * When dragging a file to another position in the file list, and a new
download starts, the file list should not jump to the new download.
18 * When dragging the scrollbar to another position in the file list,
and a new download starts, the file list should not jump to the new
download, even though moving the mouse pointer will fix the position.
19 * When selecting files with different auto download settings, UI
event sounds are emitted by the auto download toggle menu item
and/or toolbutton, as if it had been toggled by the user.
(Residual bug from bug 13)
20 * When you have approximately 1000 files on your file list, you will
start losing files when you quit and restart. This is because
gnome-config does not support really long configuration settings.
21 * Some tasks are still too slow with large file lists - mass auto
download turn on/off, mass remove from list/start/stop/restart.
22 * The dialog on drag & drop does not currently check for invalid URLs.
23 * The dialog on drag & drop allows escaped URLs, but "New Download"
and "Numeric Download" doesn't. Should be consistent.
24 * Needs to warn users when they try to specify a directory that they
don't have write access to, on the preferences and download dialogs.
Need to give an error when a URL can't be downloaded because of this.
25 * Clean up preferences layout.
26 * Downloading a lot of files at once (say 10 connections+) seems to
cause a LOT of updates and uses a lot of CPU. If it's too much, the
file list won't update. It seems to update the whole list and not
just the one line. This may not be fixable. "Doctor! Doctor! It
hurts when I do _this_!" "Well don't then!"
27 * Where a set of files has been chosen to be deleted, and some need
to be confirmed, and some not, confirmation should occur before any
of the files are deleted.
FIXED IN 0.4.9
3 * [FIXED] Wrong message on the applet when the CORBA interface was not
properlly started. The message is URL already in the list
6b * [FIXED] When adding an URL with -g option the applications gives
an error but adds the URL to the list
FIXED IN 0.4.8
8 * [FIXED] The download info window has checkboxes for auto download and
use proxy, but this only reflects the focused file, not the entire
selection like the menu and toolbar toggle for auto download, which
is potentially misleading.
FIXED IN 0.4.7
2 * [FIXED] Assume http://, ftp:// or none (last one works like it
is working now) for any given URL (also recorded in SourceForge bug
4 * [FIXED] The auto dl button on the toolbar has a strange beaviour
while changing the selected download file. (When the selection is
changed, the auto dl button sometimes fails to redraw itself in the
new toggle position. When a window redraw occurs or the mouse cursor
is moved over the button, it is redrawn OK).
7 * [FIXED] Terrible performance on startup with large file lists.
Largely due to gnome_config_sync being called unnecessarily for each
individual file. Also affects numeric download feature.
9 * [FIXED] Should do something about preventing or warning when files
of the same name are attempted to be downloaded to the same directory.
10 * [FIXED] Numeric download and multiple start generates an add sound
in succession for every file added, which can become crazy for large
numbers of files.
11 * [FIXED] Numeric download will stop adding files potentially part
way through if a duplicate URL occurs.
FIXED IN 0.4.6
1 * [FIXED] Double negatives (disable proxy and disable auto download)
5 * [FIXED] The queue list has three bugs. Loses its order,
loses stuff and sometimes items get garbled and lose information
6a * [FIXED] When a download is started without a network connection lots
of error windows pop up
13 * [FIXED] When you select a range of files with different auto download
settings, the settings of that range will be homogenised.
