No problem to try a beta version.
After further analysis (now using Dexpot 1.5.10 Build 1557), it seems that the problem only occurs with Dexcube when Multithreading (Dexcube options) is not checked.
My Dexcube plugin is configured as follows:
- Effekt: Würfel
- Zoom: Variabel
- Effeckte: Beleuchtung checked, Transparenz unchecked
- Leistung: Multithreading checked
Würfel (Minsestdauer) = 300
Würfel (Pro Desktop) = 300
Frühstücksbrett = 400
Wand und Streifen: 600
I use TweakUI to "Prevent applications from stealing focus" (TweakUI/General/Focus).
With all the above parameters, I have no problem with Desktop Manager.
Now, if I uncheck Multithreading in Dexcube, the problem will arises soon or later...
I don't know if that's related to the same problem but I've also noticed some strange behaviour with Dexcube (with or without Multithreading), which occurs rather often, which is annoying too. It feels like if Dexcube was not properly "synchronised" with Dexpot (1.5.8/1.5.9/1.5.10):
When I switch to another desktop, by clicking on the corresponding icon in the Desktop Manager window, the *2D* switching is immediate but without Dexcube *3D* transition effect. Then (may be a few seconds later), the *3D* transition occurs. During this late transition, it may also freezes a few seconds on one or both of the Dexcube Desktop "snapshot" image.
I don't remember have noticed that behaviour when using the keyboard shortcuts to switch to the previous/next desktop (but I don't use keyboard shortcuts that much).
I must add that Dexcube sometimes crashes (but not so often) during transition. It can be restarted immediately though.
So, my best guess for now is that Dexcube and Desktop Manager don't like each other...
