Description John 2019-10-15 13:45:28 UTC
During the short use of XFCE DE after a "pkg upgrade" of 12 October 2019 14:58+000 UTC the XFCE DE can shrink such that there are vertical margins of black that occur on both sides of the XFCE DE.

FreeBSD 11.3 and XFCE were installed mid July 2019 with no problems nor issues in use of XFCE DE until the "pkg upgrade" of 12 October 2019 14:58+000 UTC.  The last "pkg upgrade" done was 02 October 2019 0326+000 UTC and presented no issue with the XFCE DE as had been case and expected since the install of Mid July 2019.

No XFCE margin shrinkage when same XFCE session started

This is the same XFCE DE session earlier with no margin shrinkage shortly after the XFCE session was started.

XFCE margin vertical shrinkage when same XFCE session started

This is the same XFCE session a few hours later and after a few hours of the system idle to find the XFCE margin vertical shrinkage of same XFCE session started as attachment for "20191015-081600+0000-UTC-1571127360-FreeBSD-11.3-STABLE-Bug-XFCE-Bug-FreeBSD-11.3-20191012-1458+0000-UTC-Upgrade-NoDEShrinkage.png"

Example of what I believe is reduced application window vertical scroll widget due to XFCE DE shrinkage

This is an example of how I believe the XFCE DE vertical shrinkage impacts the vertical scroll widget of an application.  An example of the what the same application window vertical scroll widget looks like with no XFCE DE shrinkage will follow when the system is rebooted and allow confirmation or denial of my sense that the vertical scroll widget of application window is reduced.

Example of reduced application window vertical scroll widget due to XFCE DE shrinkage - xfce4-terminal

This is the same XFCE session clearly demonstrates the vertical shrinkage of XFCE session started as attachment for "20191015-081600+0000-UTC-1571127360-FreeBSD-11.3-STABLE-Bug-XFCE-Bug-FreeBSD-11.3-20191012-1458+0000-UTC-Upgrade-NoDEShrinkage.png".  Notice how the first character is cut off for each line of the terminal output.  I have taken screen shots of two other terminals that show the same DE shrinkage issue that can be added as attachments to this bug is so requested.  This attachment confirms the XFCE DE shrinkage issue.

XFCE DE Screen with no vertical shrinkage shortly after booting system

This is a reference example screenshot of how the XFCE DE looks shortly after booting the system since the "pkg upgrade" of 12 October 2019 14:58+000 UTC and has been since the FreeBSD install of mid July 2019 with no DE shrinkage.

It is still unknown what conditions lead to the XFCE DE shrinkage  since the "pkg upgrade" of 12 October 2019 14:58+000 UTC.

XFCE DE Screen with no vertical shrinkage shortly after booting system and no clipping of text in the terminal session.

This is a reference example screenshot of how the XFCE DE terminal looks shortly after booting the system since the "pkg upgrade" of 12 October 2019 14:58+000 UTC and has been since the FreeBSD install of mid July 2019 with no DE shrinkage and no clipping of terminal session text as result of XFCE DE shrinkage.

It is still unknown what conditions lead to the XFCE DE shrinkage  since the "pkg upgrade" of 12 October 2019 14:58+000 UTC.
