Bug of the moment 2007-08-11

A silly entry for today. While collecting screenshots from the RedSquirrel Acorn emulator for my RISC OS page, I accidentally popped open the Save dialogette for the colour palette. Given my experiences with a real Acorn, I really don’t know if this was an emulation problem or system problem, but what’s with this dialog box?

For some reason, instead of appearing next to the parent menu, it jumped to the left-hand side of the screen, grew to the height of the Pinboard and shrunk in width.

Oddly enough, it stayed this way for the rest of the session even if I first moved the parent menu, or switched resolution:

I suppose it makes a change from endless, spontaneous “Access to window denied” messages.
