Bug#214475: xlibs: Severity should be important
Followup-For: Bug #214475
The severity level of this bug should be set to important. As a previous
author called Jens pointed out, a bug is considered important if it is
"a bug which has a major effect on the usability of a package, without
rendering it completely unusable to everyone."
This bug causes the interface to produce *inconsistent* behaviour,
resulting from very different responses to "fast" or "slow" mouse clicks.
This is a serious burden to the user, who has to constantly monitor how
the interface has responded to his/her actions. If he/she fails to do
this, folders may be unintentionally moved to other locations.
I myself stopped using konqueror due to this behaviour. I noticed I grew
so accustomed to this constant monitoring that I started monitoring other
programs that use the same sort of view as well. ;)
P.S. Consistency is regarded as one of the ten most important "usability
heuristic" by Jakob Nielsen:
Consistency and standards
Users should not have to wonder whether different words, situations,
or actions mean the same thing. Follow platform conventions.
