Package: gnome-session
Severity: normal
File: gnome

Dear Maintainer,

In chromium, I dragged an image from its original location, let go, and it "stuck" to the screen.
The windows would function as usual, but none of the gnome menus worked, and the image was stuck
in place on the screen. The right-click menu would cover the image, but other windows wouldn't cover the image.
Also, alt-f2 and the usual shortcuts didn't work. Gnome was operating in legacy mode. The desktop
environment would not function properly (but all the windows and applications still worked!) until
I killed the session.

Here is the error message from the console:
Window manager warning: Buggy client sent a _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW message with a timestamp of 0 for 0x2400001 (View Scatt)
Window manager warning: Meta_window_activate called by a pager with a 0 timestamp: the pager needs to be fixed.

There were several of these, which covered the entire console.

Thank you.
