Re: Public screen closing bug in OS4.1

2. Ringhio is causing OS4's "Open/close screen automatically" to fail to close screens.

I've done some tests with my own public screen (not using Screens prefs, which adds an extra layer of debugging)

CloseScreen() returns TRUE if the only visitor window is Ringhio, so the calling app believes the screen has closed. However, the screen hasn't closed.

I think now that this is an Intuition bug, as if the screen hasn't physically closed then there is no way CloseScreen should return that it has.

Ringhio is not at fault, although it is highly likely that the way it draws its notifications means Intuition isn't aware it is open. However, it must be locking the screen, otherwise the screen would close. The bug is that Intuition should not be reporting that it has closed a screen successfully when it hasn't.


I tried to tell you and others, that CloseScreen() is working exactly as documented and expected

I've just proved that it isn't. Please make up, both of you
