New Radar Screen closes randomly

Postby it0uchpods » Sat May 06, 2017 1:42 pm

Hi.
I noticed, that sometimes, randomly, the "Radar Scope" goes away. Even if I restore it, it still goes away after a short time. Any idea why this happens? No errors in console.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Please, a commit number if git-cloned, a version if tarball-downloaded.

Thanks.
If you have a perfectly reproducible scenario (I am guessing, just open one and wait long enough), could you tell:
- if being in a game (whether solo, connected to FGMS...) vs. session stopped has any effect
- if this happens on the dev branch as well
- your best guess at the average visible time of the window before it closes

I actually found this problem reproducible a while ago, and found that it was introduced when I tried to avoid the "always on top" behaviour imposed on most systems.

The next release will be fixed, but "always on top" will be restored. Hopefully nobody makes use of radars they wish to hide. After all, was made for multi-screen users ;-)
