Taskbar flashing issue with 2.6 SVN

In the never ending pursuit of happiness I’ve been customizing Spark for my purposes.

One issue that appeared was that the taskbar flash notification stopped working. I compiled again from a clean source and whoosh! it worked again. (Insert here pains of finding variable… frustration… glances at pandion… etc). Then I noticed that a clean source would stop working to.

If I compile from SVN, open Spark from target dir, kill Spark then open it again, flash no longer works. Only resolution is to reboot and it work again.

Not a big issue but I just wondered if anyone else is experiencing it or has a fix.


ok so i misspoke… the sleasy way of saying i didn’t check thoroughly before i posted.

So the issue perists after reboot. Flash will even begin working after it stopped in the first place… This is the output which comes up every time that flash will not work:

Banishment for lazy posts is acceptable. Just tell me when I need to give up.

I’m using latest SVN version at home all the time and i didn’t notice it to stop working (flashing i mean).

Are you running it from the target dir of netbeans or eclipse or was it from an installer?

I’m running from the target dir of netbeans (with startup.bat file)

I can confirm this exception
