Default Sub menu's close after 3 seconds
I've installed the latest version of lxde-meta from an updated ports collection in a clean install of PCBSD 8.1.

All works well except the menu's, both the start menu and also when I tried to add applications to the application launch bar.

When I open i.e. the internet menu, I see the items in it but after 3 seconds it closes the menu. When I keep my mouse above this sub menu, it will reopen again and close again after 3 seconds. When I try to open it at the 2nd second it will close after 1 second. So the time does not depend on when I open it but on some other clock.

The right click desktop menu does not have this problem.

Does anyone have a clue what I can do to solve this?

Kind regards, Nico

I can confirm that. Problem also present in PC-BSD 8.1 with lxde-meta installed from ports and 9.0-current snapshot installed from DVD.

PS. Kris, is you maintainer?

Yea, I'm seeing it here. I'll have to check if its a bug in the port specifically, or something upstream.

It may be a week or two before I can dig into it, so if somebody else wants to take a look at it, then
feel free. I'll be happy to commit any patch

Hi Kris,

Glad to know you notice as well and it's not related to only particular systems.
I've also found the issue and posted the question in FreeBSD 8.1 installing through ports.

I've tried upgrading some ports without succes.

The timing seems to be such a clear clue.
It's exactly 3 seconds. (I timed 10 in 30 seconds with my watch, that's exact enough for me)
Too bad my knowledge of the ports and BSD in general is too limited at the moment.
Haven't got a clue myself where to look and what to look for.
A base install of PCBSD is easy enough but I'm still struggeling trying to get FreeBSD working well. Yes I read and even printed parts of the handbook. Right now I need to cut down on my BSD time, it's very interesting but also taking too much of my time!

Currently I'm using fbpanel, that also seems to be working quite well.

weird... I have the same thing for 8.2RC1 but for bringing up OSS sound mixer on kde. Could it be a xorg to qt C code thing? I would love to browse the source code to find it, but I have been extremely busy these days.
