 Bugs
======

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
	#108691)

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.
