Description Dave Jones 2005-12-30 21:43:23 EST
this is just... freaky.

if I start one gnome-terminal from the system menu, it starts up fine.
I can then run gnome-terminal from that first terminal, and a 2nd one pops up
fine. (I can start however many terminals I want this way).

If I try to start two terminals from the system menu though (or an icon I
dropped onto the menubar), the first one locks up, and the second terminal never
starts up.

This first started happening around the time that the gcc4.1 rebuild happened,
and something magical 'fixed' it shortly afterwards, even though there were no
updates that could be responsible for it.

It's now back again, and is driving me nuts, yarrr.

stracing the stuck gnome-terminal app shows its stuck waiting on a futex.
Given it only happens when started from the panel, I've filed this here rather
than against gnome-terminal.

This is definately not a panel bug. Problem occurs when launching gnome-terminal
from anywhere, but only when specifying some parameters. Like the default
launchers "--working-directory=<path>" or even just "--title=hhh" and such. This
could of course still be in some component that gnome-terminal utilizes, but for
now, please move bug to gnome-terminal, so it can get fixed.

--disable-factory helps - This is the backtrace and memory map captured from the
first gonme-terminal session, when starting number 2.

Comment 3 Thomas M Steenholdt 2006-01-03 14:01:33 EST
The real problem may be with bonobo or something, but could someone please move
this to gnome-terminal, or another component if you have a good reason for doing
so? This is not a panel problem and the bug is probably not going to get much
attention before it hits the right shelf.
