Thank you again for your helpfulness. You are an important asset to our
Does this bug exist in *your* windows Kicad?
If not, simply upload your windows binaries to the sourceforge site.
And update the bug database there to say this bug has been fixed. Then
But more likely, if the bug exists, then first let's recognize that the
bug is a minor bug. Fixing it may require single stepping through the
Kicad *AND* wxWidgets code in a debugger. This is trickier to debug
than bugs existing only within Kicad. Therefore I would say this bug
has an unfavorable cost to benefit ratio, which is often a criterion
used to determine which things get fixed first. Short of somebody
spending time on it, maybe the reporter could make the folks who
maintain wxWidgets aware of it. Or maybe it will go away on its own as
we move to newer versions of wxWidgets, say a year from now. There is
also the possibility that a workaround could be put into the Kicad
code. In the end, it always comes down to man-hours.
Dick Hollenbeck napsal(a):
The latest svn build of cvpcb on my Ubuntu Feisty is working as you say
it should. So it may be either a wxWidgets version difference or a
wxWidgets platform difference.
I tried to help you, but it looks like somebody who builds Kicad on
Windows will have to take it from here. Sorry.
Is wxWidgets the culprit here too?
It appears to happen in the Window install I have, not in the earlier
To prevent misunderstanding (my English is not so good) - what should I do?
