Node:Bugs, Previous:Conflicts, Up:Conflicts and bugs
This section describes all currently known bugs of ECB. The maintainers of ECB try to fix these bugs as soon as possible.
The following bug occurs only in ECB-versions < 1.96 and is fixed since ECB 1.96!!
This bug only occurs if a compile-window is used and visible!
If you call functions like
describe-function which displays a
help-buffer in the compile-window, then you will often get an output
like this in the compile-window:
ecb-activate is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `ecb'. (ecb-activate) Activates the ECB...
The link to `ecb' is normally a click-able link, means if you click
with the middle-mouse button onto it the file is opened (in our
ecb.el would be opened.
If you click onto it when the help-buffer is already the current buffer (i.e. the compile-window is already selected before the click!) then all is working fine (i.e. the file is opened in the edit-window), but if you click onto the link without selecting the compile-window before (i.e. the edit-window is the current selected window) then the file is opened in the compile-window which is probably not what you want. Not a big problem but annoying.
The only available workaround is, first selecting the compile-window and then clicking onto the link!
ECB on occasions creates an extra edit buffer for entries in the
history window. For example, let say there are three entries in the
Test1 Test2 Test3
In the edit window Test1 file is edited. When clicked on Test2 entry
in history, on occasion instead of switching to the existing buffer for
Test2, a new edit buffer is opened for Test2 file. At this point, there
are four entries in the history as follows:
Test2 Test2<2> Test1 Test3
