Having some weird behavior with v0.9.1.57.ge7405149

 

When Spotify is not focused, clicking on an element in the application doesn't perform the action that element normally would, but instead raises the application only. For example, clicking a track would normally raise the window and highlight that track. Currently, the window raises, but the clicked track is not highlighted, and the previously highlighted track remains highlighted.

 

This seems to compound with some other bug: double-clicking a track still registers the second click as a double-click, but since it only raised the window last time, starts the previously selected track again from the beginning. Brilliant.

 

This is a bug, but apparently I can't post in the bugs forum, because I'm a new user, or something.

 

Please, stop breaking Windows UI conventions. You are not a Mac application.

I don't know what causes this, I only seem to get it sometimes. Restarting the client returns it to normal for me for some reason.
