GTK+ bug. Arnavion was kind enough to track it down and even file a bug report about it:

I have this patch:

There is a glitch that I see with this patch in the following configurations:

  • Windows 7 x64 with Hexchat x86
  • Windows 8 x64 with Hexchat x86

and not on the following configurations:

  • Windows 7 x64 with Hexchat x64
  • Windows 8 x64 with Hexchat x64

(All using VS2012. All other configurations untested)

Mousing over the entries in the tray's context menu doesn't highlight them. Clicking on them still works. I'm still investigating why. Need @bviktor or @eustachy to tell me if this happens using VS2010 and this patch.

Win7x64 + Hexchat x86 (build using vs2010) + gtk-statusicon.patch for gtk (build with vs2010):


Highligthing items in tray works (other stuff works too) and i was unable to crash it :P

After some more testing I encountered this thing, it happens on start with x64 build. I can't reproduce it as right now my hexchat works. I uploaded it as new 2.9.6 test so maybe someone will get it too :P

I can verify that it works the way you explained with VS2012. Seems to be fine with x64 builds, on x86 no highlighting but working click.

Since the crash is resolved, I've opened a new issue for the mouse highlighting bug.
