Subject: Problem with fonts and filename-dialog
Date: 2003-11-14


I am using the 5x7.fnt for a long time. When entering a filename for a
configuration or during renaming of files, a bigger font was in use. Today
i discovered, that, while in this filename dialog, the small and the big
fonts swap and flicker. The cursor and the inverted character selection box
always match the big font and the big font is displayed when a key is
pressed but some tenths of a second later the small font takes over without
affecting the inverted box or the cursor. There is also a second type of
flicker. This can be seen in the topmost character line without a need for
pressing keys or using a different font. This two effects do not depend on
the play state (playing/paused or stopped). The problem can not be solved
by "reset settings" or loading an unedited *.cfg.

The version is 20031111 on a flashed jbr20. This problem is not present in
20031110 but still present in 20031114. Those were tested by "playing" them.

The change log indicates, that this problem must have been introduced in
"apps/plugins/vu_meter.c" v1.2.
