Does this happen even if you have no torrents visible in the main window's list?

If it's triggered by a certain torrent, could you try filtering torrents by name, then hiding/restoring from the tray, to figure out which torrent is causing the problem?

Yes, i even removed all torrents inside Transmission and restarted it. same issue.

Also seems to be specified to a single gtk theme too. I get this problem when using:

But if i use something else, the problem isnt there anymore.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

If that's the case, this sounds a lot like an oxygen-gtk bug rather than a Transmission bug.

Please report this upstream to the oxygen-gtk developers at

Thank you!
