Description JMM 2017-02-20 21:11:28 UTC
For clarification, the input line is the input field between the top toolbars and the large area with the cells, where you can view or edit the content of the currently selected cell.

Under certain circumstances, when you move the mouse cursor over the input line going upwards, as soon as it exits the input line area the position resets to where the mouse entered the input line from below. This doesn't happen if you do it from top to bottom, only from bottom to top.

The effect is that when you try go move the cursor over the input line to the tool icons or the main menu, the cursor continuously jumps from top to bottom of the input line area.

Steps to Reproduce:
This problem usually happens after long usage of Calc. I've done lots of tries since I use Calc very often but I can't seem to find the actions that make this bug trigger.

Actual Results:  
The mouse cursor is moved to the bottom of the input line.

Expected Results:
LibreOffice shouldn't move the mouse cursor at all when hovering over different controls.

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I think it's related to the mouse cursor change from the normal arrow to the text input cursor. Calc somehow 'captures' the cursor state, not only the arrow but also the position, and when exiting the input line, instead of just restoring the arrow cursor, it also restores the position.

JMM: is this the same as bug 102306?
Comment 2 Buovjaga 2017-03-19 16:23:10 UTC
Hmm, I found an even older one: bug 92550.
I will close as duplicate.

It appears so. I didn't find that bug because I didn't notice it anywhere else in the toolbar, just in the input line area. Feel free to tag this bug as duplicated.

Maybe it's worth putting my report as comment in that bug?

The worst is that it's not reproducible, for me it just happens after a long time using Calc. A non-reproducible bug is very hard to fix, as I've witnessed many times, and just recently in a six-hour debug session.

Comment 6 in bug 92550 has some reproduction tips.
