#2884 closed defect (fixed)

auto-refresh failure: cancelled

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: critical Milestone: 4.1
Component: server Version: 3.0.x
Keywords: Cc:


Running a simple xterm with --quality=10, maximize and unmaximize until the lossy picture sticks.

Problem is that the server schedules an auto-refresh but a new damage event comes in and cancels it, without re-scheduling a new auto-refresh for some reason. (without even sending a draw packet?)

What happens is that the refresh is scheduled, but cancelled by:

And this damage event never sends a screen update either!

This is caused by r17480.
The easy fix would be to take it out, or make it more clever by comparing with the refresh list:

         if delayed:

But we already handle intersections with the video region in window_video_source - so is this needed at all?

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed
  • r27532 : don't cancel refresh
  • r27530 : timer_full_refresh was not invalidating the scroll data, so we ended up not sending a screen update at all (zero delta since the last one... which was lossy)
