Known Bugs

  • Quirky behaviour on exit if you haven't given the current task list a file name (i.e. saved it).

  • Exit from the file menu and the Quit button don't actually do the same thing.

  • No error checking is done when task lists are loaded, if you open a file that has is not in the correct format Gnome-ToDo will quite happily insert the crap into it's task list then generally fall over. If this happens you may well have to delete ${HOME}/.gnometd/config as this will more than likely contain the filename of the incorrect format file.

  • When a task is set to executable a process is forked to run this job in the background, at the moment defunct processes are left behind when the job finishes, my understanding was that setsid() should sort this out but this appears not to be the case.
