Greetings!!
I am running BOINC Manager, Version 7.16.3 in Ubuntu 19.10. [edited]
In ~/.BOINC/stderrgui.txt, the following two errors repeat:
(boincmgr:2373): Gtk-WARNING **: 01:28:27.866: Negative content height -1 (allocation 1, extents 1x1) while allocating gadget (node scrolledwindow, owner GtkScrolledWindow)

(boincmgr:2373): Gtk-CRITICAL **: 01:28:27.874: gtk_box_gadget_distribute: assertion 'size >= 0' failed in GtkScrollbar

I *assume* that this happens when a full-sized window can't be generated on the desktop and a smaller window with scrollbars are needed.

Anyone else seeing this?
Can the error be ignored?

Thanks in advance, Jay

[edit] The same error occurs in Ubuntu 18.04.

I get

Last line repeated with differing numbers for three pages. Ubuntu 19.10 BOINC 7.17.0 (Pre-release) I wouldn't have looked had I not seen your post. Tasks seem to complete without any issue so I guess yo can ignore it. (Like I say, I had been ignoring it through not knowing it was there.) Ignorance is bliss sometimes ;)
