More skinned Spark issues

I’ve gotten another issue on our skinned Spark that seems to work correctly on a non-skinned one. This is on Windows XP and Vista.

Minimizing Spark 2.5.5 works.
However, clicking the “X” button makes Spark go away, NOT leaving a
System Tray icon or Task Bar icon in place. A review of the System
Processes shows spark.exe still running.
Launching a new instance of Spark 2.5.5, and logging on, causes the
original instance of spark to disconnect my original session and
magically brings the GUI back to the desktop.

I’ve also been hearing about “blank window” issues on the Linux version, but don’t have a concrete description other than ‘it’s drawing blank windows’. It may also be affecting the non-skinned version.


This was an issue with the bundled JRE, and has since been fixed. Please rebuild your Skinned Spark, and verify that the fix is working.



Since I’m the one who reported the blank window issue to Sam, I’ll fill in the details.

When Spark is started (cd /usr/local/Spark; ./Spark), a window is opened (screenshot) which appears to be the correct size for the login window. Mouse clicks within the window have no response.

The Spark error log is empty.

I am running Ubuntu 7.04, and my java version is

java version “1.6.0_01”

Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_01-b06)

Java HotSpot™ Server VM (build 1.6.0_01-b06, mixed mode

Let me know what other info you need or any tests you want me to try.
