Detached Groups Auto-Size Incorrectly in 10.9 Mavericks

Description (last modified by Frank)


OS X 10.9 Mavericks changed the behavior of secondary displays: Now, all displays contain a menubar, whereas previously the menubar only displayed on the primary screen. This creates a visual bug in Adium where are group that is detached from the main window and set to adjust its vertical size automatically will not take the menubar into account if it is sized to the full height of the screen.

Steps to reproduce

(Note: These steps require OS X Mavericks running in a multi-display environment)

  1. Move the Adium window to a secondary display (one that does not have the menubar on top in System Preferences > Displays)
  2. Under Adium > Preferences > Appearance, enable "Automatic Sizing: Size to fit vertically"
  3. Detach a group from the main Contact List
  4. Ensure that the detached contact group contains enough items that it is sized to fit the whole screen (either by showing offline contacts, changing your display resolution, or just being really really popular)
  5. Note that the height of the detached contact group exceeds the height of the desktop and that its top is hidden behind the menubar

Expected results

A detached contact group window which is automatically sized should not exceed the height of the desktop minus the menubar, nor should it wrap behind the menubar.

Actual results

The contact group window is too tall and hides behind the menubar.


The problem occurs only on secondary desktops in OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

Oh I really botched that description. Ignore the second paragraph ("I have Adium running..."), it was meant to be deleted.
