Got the following email from a customer: can other folks let us know if they can replicate the issue in the 5.9.2 sneakypeeks? We've got a G4 laptop here for testing, but the trackpad doesn't support two-finger scrolling...
Thanks to anyone that can give us a hand with this!
Scrolling in Omniweb with the trackpad on my 1.5 GHz aluminum PowerBook is jerky. A steady scrolling motion (two fingers) on the trackpad translates to short intervals of normal window contents scrolling followed by a discontinuous jump of the contents, then repeating. Faster motion with the fingers translates to bigger jumps. I made a recording with Jing but I'm afraid it's not very useful--apparently Jing loads the processor to the point where it messes with the scrolling and makes it jumpy in a different way. I'll say that the problem that I reported is only a little annoying. But it happens with all kinds of pages, not just ones with lots of stuff in them. I also just now noticed that when Omniweb is not the front application and two-finger scrolling is done on it (as is new in Leopard), the scrolling is perfectly smooth. Front app--jerky; not front app--smooth.
