Package: libgtk-3-bin
Version: 3.14.5-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The documentation here:


indicates that the allowed values for gtk-primary-button-warps-slider are TRUE
or FALSE, however setting it to FALSE in .config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini results
in an error:

Key file contains key 'gtk-primary-button-warps-slider' which has a value that
cannot be interpreted.

Setting the value to 0 works, but the documentation is clear that FALSE should
be an alias for 0. This is obviously not the case.
