[PP][BETA] Mac OS - File|New|Blank Window draws bad window


(Core :: DOM: Editor, defect, P3)

Mac System 8.6





(Reporter: cpratt, Assigned: Brade)



(Whiteboard: [BETA-BLOCKER])

Build ID: 1999090808
Platform: Mac OS 8.6 (only)

To reproduce:
- Launch apprunner
- Select File | New | Blank Window

Result: A window is drawn, but the window contains white and grey garbage, an
insertion caret, and not much else.

Expected result: A new Editor window should be drawn.
Oddly enough, if you wait for a screensaver to kick in, and then move the mouse,
thereby forcing a refresh of the display, the window displays as expected. So...
the window does eventually draw.

kathy, I'm not seeing this on windows with code pulled early this morning.  Can
you investigate on mac?
my window (build from yesterday) on Mac comes up with a completely blank window.
If I obscure the window or similar action and then bring it back, it looks fine.
(mousing over icons will cause them to be drawn)
I tracked down a little more info.  It seems that if the empty page actually has
a character in it, the window draws correctly except the space below the
character (which remains white until obscured or you type in it).  If you add a
tag to the empty document, the entire window comes up gray.

btw, the empty html file is actually not a legal html file (no title).
kathy, please assign a milestone based on the severity of this problem. Does it
need to get fixed for beta?
Target Milestone: M12
I believe this is a bug in the view manager; cc:ing beard. It may be exacerbated
by our explicit view update call in the editor.

Summary: [PP] Mac OS - File | New | Blank Window draws bad window → [PP][beta] Mac OS - File|New|Blank Window draws bad window
as of today, the toolbars are missing when a new window is opened.  I think this
needs to be fixed prior to beta but isn't critical for dogfood.
