Default Gtk update messed up thunderbird thread marker triangles??

Could this have something todo with the rebuild of libpng/libtiff? With
other words: Do you have the testing repos enabled?

Best regards,

I don't have testing enabled. I don't think it is libpng/libtiff related because
I have seen it for a couple of days/weeks/months (as close as I can recall). I
think it is probably related to either:

[2011-11-19 14:08] upgraded gtk2 (2.24.8-1 -> 2.24.8-2)
[2012-01-26 18:26] upgraded gtk2 (2.24.8-2 -> 2.24.9-1)

This appears to be some generic gtk2 problem, but I can't tell exactly when it
started. I just checked an opensuse box and it shows the same problem with gkt2
(2.22.1), so it looks like the issue is in some package that interfaces with
gtk2 because the version on the suse box is way older than the arch version and
I still see the same behavior ...and... I know this is something I've just seen
in the past 30 days or so on both distros. I have no idea what draws the little
triangle (which package/lib, etc...), any ideas?

Another data point - I'm using TB daily (12.0a1) on KDE with system
fully updated from testing repos and I have no problems with that and
never had a problem. Not suggesting you use testing .. just what I have.

It looks like you are correct. The time frame is about right and the
screenshots in the bug report are looking at the same triangles I'm having
problem with. I just check freedesktop.org and pixman 0.24.2 is still the
latest, so I guess we will have to check when the next pixman package comes out.


I'll downgrade and see if it help.

That wasn't it I downgraded:

[2012-02-01 14:35] Running 'pacman -U pkg-1/pixman-0.24.0-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz'
[2012-02-01 14:35] upgraded pixman (0.24.2-1 -> 0.24.0-1)
[2012-02-01 14:46] Running 'pacman -U pkg-2/pixman-0.22.2-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz'
[2012-02-01 14:46] upgraded pixman (0.24.0-1 -> 0.22.2-1)

Same results. I'm back to 0.24.2-1 and scratching my head. Any other ideas?
