Guess what, I'm having reproducing this one too.

I've since discovered that it happens when displaying qgis using Xwin32 under windows, but not directly on a linux computer display. Guess I'll have to find the solution myself - again :)

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Fixed in SVN 05433ca8 (SVN r5647).

Problem was that under Xwin32, showing a hidden dialog box didn't work. Whether this is a Qt4 or an Xwin32 problem, I don't know.

Commit 05433ca8 (SVN r5647) is a workaround to the problem where whenever the dialog box is closed, it is deleted rather than just hidden. Hence when the user does another identify, a new dialog box is created to show the results rather than showing the hidden one.
