Bug report #1809
QGIS highlights the taskbar button randomly.
|Affected QGIS version:||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Windows||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Resolution:||invalid|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Copied to github as #:||11869|
I tend to keep QGIS open for days at a time on my Windows system. I've noticed that every hour or so, QGIS will turn its taskbar button on the taskbar a bright orange color (the basic Windows highlight color). Like it's trying to get my attention for a notification or something. However, when I maximize the program, I see nothing indicating that it wanted my attention.
Not a show stopper, but a bit on the annoying side. I wouldn't worry about it as a must-fix-for-release thing, but if someone does get some free time to chase it down, it would be appreciated. If this were on Mac OS X, with the icon jumping up in the tray at me at random, then I might've flagged this as a "critical" bug :)
For reference, I'm running Windows Server 2008 SP2 64bit w/ 8GB of RAM and a quad-core Intel Core2 processor. If there is additional debugging output that I can provide, please let me know.

Th attached image is right after I've turned on my monitor this morning/afternoon, looked at my e-mail and saw this comment. I haven't maximized QGIS once yet, yet it's highlighted orange here. I haven't really been able to put a specific time down for this oddity. It's just one of those things you notice out of the corner of your eye while working in other programs.
I am running QGIS-1.1.0 here, of course. I've held off running the nightlies because I would like some measure of safety that it won't corrupt my entire project or anything. It is possible 1.2 might have fixed this unknowingly.
