Summary0003771: "Put populated servers on top" has regressed to require UI interaction for focus on startup
DescriptionAs far as I remember, Doomseeker has always had this quirky behavior where the "put populated servers on top" option for server filtering requires focus on the UI window (server browser) to refresh the server browser view (to sort by populated servers). This is most noticeable if Doomseeker is allowed to update the servers in background, while another window (e.g. a game) is in focus.

The behavior described earlier isn't an issue and is considerably normal behavior, because mouse cursor focus on the window would immediately put populated servers on top.

A regression somewhere has caused to require UI interaction on startup, e.g. a mouse cursor click, to update the server browser view and put populate servers on top. But only under obscure conditions, such as starting Doomseeker from dmenu instead of a shell/terminal emulator. Mouse wheel scrolling in the server browser doesn't count as focus. This "require UI focus on startup" didn't use to be reproducible this way few months ago on my system.

This is reproducible with a new configuration, so it seems not an issue with my configuration.
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Sort by lowest ping. Clear any additional sorting. (The default new configuration will get you far.)
  2. Because of another bug, the server filtering checkbox "put populated servers on top" shouldn't matter. Still, for the sake of reproduction let's assume it's enabled (because it is enabled in the default configuration).
  3. Close Doomseeker.
  4. Start dmenu (default keybinding in i3-wm: $mod + D, aka Mod4 + D, aka Meta key + D) and run Doomseeker.
  5. Notice servers are being populated to the server browser (with Internet connection), but the populated servers are not at the top. If not, reattempt few times.
  6. Click anywhere or gain window focus some other way, then notice the populated servers jump to top. The most clear indicator of this happening is the "Server name" textbox in server filter gaining focus, and you can start typing.

Repeat from a shell/terminal emulator and the issue can't be reproduced.

The "filtering enabled" option in server filter does not need to be checked, it's unrelated and has no effect on reproduction. (It filters by "max. ping" alright on startup, without need for focus, while filtering is enabled.)
Additional InformationQt 5.12.5.

issue-3771.png is a screenshot from startup, without gaining focus.

To get this screenshot, I had to use delay:
maim -u --delay=30 | xclip -selection clipboard -t image/png

I then cropped the image in an image editor.

issue-3771.png also happens with "put populated servers on top" disabled, because of issue 0003772 they are treated as enabled, so as I said in the steps to reproduce, it shouldn't matter.
