#1391 closed defect (invalid)

bb library, chicken, xubuntu x86, window title is random garbled non-ascii text

Reported by: alex_s Owned by: Alex S.
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: unknown Version: 4.9.x
Keywords: Cc: a.se8seven@…
Estimated difficulty: easy



In the bb library, on xubuntu x86, when I pass (text "title") or (text 'title) I do not see the string "title" at the top of the screen, but rather a random string of non-ASCII characters in the title bar of the window. Anytime I restart the program, the random string will change. I have installed chicken-bin from the synaptic repos and have version installed.

Any of the example code on the bb egg-ref is also affected by this bug on my machine.

Please let me know if any further explanation is required, if you'd like me to upload screenshots, or if I can assist in debugging this issue in any way.

Thanks very much,
Alex S.

Just as an update:
I can set a window's title correctly through assigning the bb:property "text" the desired string i.e, (set! (bb:property main-win 'text) "the title") instead of passing the text property of the window through to bb:render, so I'm good to go.

Update, the notes example code in egg-ref still produces this error for me, so the bug exists, it just has an easy work around.. Maybe update the documentation?
