( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
After much pain and strife, I solved the problem. As I suspected, it was not the part of any of my code. Rather, it was a configuration issue, my own fault, not the upgrade's.

First, there were some other symptoms that turned out to be related to the problem.

  • Qt applications would show up incredibly huge. This was not a big problem, nor did I notice it right away because I seldom use those programs.
  • Some Tcl/Tk programs exhibited the same behaviour as the Qt programs. The also showed the scrollbar wierdness that I originally saw.

    After thinking about this for awhile, I realized that I had been mucking with my X configuration a little, but I had dropped it and never finished with it. Since my oft-used applications were not affected, I didn't link it to the problem. But, upon removing  Load  "xtt" from the "Module" section of my XF86Config, all of the problems vanished.

    Ah, lessons learned.

    See you, space cowboy

    Title:
    Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
    and:  <code> code here </code>
    to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



    • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
    • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
      <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
    • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
    • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
