Hi everybody,

it is my first question here, therefore it is highly appreciated if you excuse any mistakes :)

I am using ROS kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04. I have been using rviz for a long time now and figured out that by undocking the Camera-plugin panel and moving it around in the view randomly, the view (namely the yaw and pitch) changes randomly as well. This occurs in every view, but is best visible in the ThirdPersonFollower-View.

This bug also occurs in the following scenario: you undock your Camera-panel and move it somewhere in the view. Afterwards you enlarge it, let's say in the vertical direction. By doing so, the view rotates as "fast" as you enlarge the panel. It rotates around the horizontal axis.

In my opinion, this bug is based on falsely handling multiple MouseEvents.

Did anybody already have this bug or can help me in some way?

If there are any further information I can provide, please let me know :)

Attached, you can find a screen cast showing the bug.

Kind regards!

This sounds like something best reported over at ros-visualization/rviz/issues. Be sure to check the list of (both open and closed) issues, as it may have already been reported.
