Description ieure 2005-02-19 19:26:48 UTC
Version:           1.2 (using KDE 3.3.2,  (3.1))
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-8)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.10-1-686

The position slider doesn't work as expected when using my scrollwheel.

When I scroll (either up or down) a few times, the song restarts. It should seek forward and backwards in the song.

Yep, I can confirm this.
Comment 2 Max Howell 2005-02-28 14:00:29 UTC
This is because during a seek the engine (may) return 0 for position. So If you scroll at that time it will seek from position 0.

This is a duplicate report.

On 1.2.3 here, using the scrollwheel on the song position slider results in skipping and garbled sound and no song movement, using both aKode and Gstreamer engines. I tried to test the arts engine but it wouldn't start playing at all.

Looking at 99078, I don't have the same kind of behavior at all.  Shift+scroll over the systray icon works perfectly; it's only the position slider that's broken; and it doesn't involve large numbers of scrolls.

Created attachment 18945 [details]

1.4.4 bug still here, but now it appears at global seek hotkey. I think this
patch(hack?) can remove him from everywhere.

Alex, I've committed your patch. It works great! Many thanks :)
