Bug Description

Binary package hint: shutter

When I create a screenshot using the advanced selection tool, there is often a dashed border included in the final image. An example is attached.

This problem does not happen with the simple selection tool.

This is known as a nvidia-drivers issue. I don't know whether this is Shutter's or the driver's fault, but this only happens to users with nividia gfx-card (proprietary driver, doesn't happen with nv). Unfortunately, I don't have a system to test with.

Are you using a timeout? Does this also happen when setting the timeout to 0?

I tried to reproduce it but failed. Using Arch Linux 32Bit, Kernel 3.1.7, nvidia 290.10, both Compiz and Xfwm, Shutter 0.88.1 Rev.1174. So either

1. I was quite lucky.
2. It is already fixed in Shutter.
3. It has been fixed in some recent version of nvidia or the kernel.
4. It is fixed in some libs used in Arch Linux.
5. It is 64Bit specific.
6. It is hardware specific (though this shouldn't be the case as I already had similar problems with an early Shutter version).
