[This is a canned response, please forgive the broken formatting: it's one of the many things Gna! unfortunately does not do well.]

This bug tracker will shortly be moving to Github. As part of this process, we are reviewing old bug reports on gna.org.

This bug was marked as Fixed long ago, but was still classified as Open. Github does not distinguish between Fixed+Open and Fixed+Closed in the
way we once did here, so this bug is now being marked Closed, and will not be migrated into the github issues tracker.

If you believe that this bug still affects the most recent git master of MyPaint (and thus the next release), please feel free to open a new
issue on Github about it. Our new issue trackers are:

Hi Ryan - can you try https://gitorious.org/mypaint/mypaint/commit/f11a9cf5695e62da9046d0b42b446ed861189e91 to see if this makes the resizing problem go away? Thanks.

Ah, not a duplicate. Reopening; see bug #20638 comment #8.

I may have reproduced something like this with the HSV triangle selector too. Steps to reproduce:

1. Start MyPaint
2. Open the colour dropdown in the toolbar, and remember where the bottom-right corner of the dropdown panel went
3. Draw a blob on the canvas where the bottom-right corner went, or stick your finger on the screen at that point
4. Keep closing and then re-opening the colour dropdown without making any selections.
5. Expected: dropdown has the same size each time;
6. Observed: it keeps growing by a few pixels each time to dropdown is dropped down.

It doesn't keep growing as described in the title and as indicated in bug #20638 comment #4. Still this indicates that there's something amiss with the way our HSV triangle wrapper code, gui.colors.hsvtriangle.HSVTrianglePage resizes.

Dup of bug #20638.

Pretty much what is says on the tin. Before the most recent updates the dockable window would grow a little each time I moved the cursor over it, but the dropdown color chooser was fine. Now both just rapidly increase in size if they're open at all.
