Description Cristian Ciupitu 2011-03-09 01:43:34 EST
Created attachment 483109 [details] GDB backtraces for pidgin Description of problem: I was typing a message to an offline friend of mine when pidgin suddenly froze. This happened multiple times, but only when using a specific font and window size. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): pidgin-2.7.10-1.fc14.x86_64.rpm pango-1.28.1-4.fc14.x86_64.rpm How reproducible: Every time for this very specific setup Steps to Reproduce: 1. Log in to GNOME 2. Go to System -> Preferences -> Appearance 2a. Select the Fedora theme 2b. Select the following fonts: Sans 10, Sans 10, Sans 10, Sans Bold 10, Monospace 10 and Subpixel smoothing (LCDs) 3. Create the following symlinks: - /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-autohint.conf -> /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-autohint.conf - /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf -> /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf 4. Double check font settings: [ciupicri@hermes ~]$ fc-match Sans DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book" 5. Start pidgin and login to a Yahoo account. It might work with other protocols as well, but I haven't tested this. 6. Start a conversation with an offline buddy, although I don't think this matters; it worked once with an online buddy, too. 7. Before typing anything, resize the window to something close to 587 x 473 pixels. You could even start with a width of 600 pixels. The screenruler package might be useful for this. 8. Type the message "aiastppl eut http://www.facebook.com/in.cuurraanadi#!/photo.php?fbid=069710401708640&set=a.553584074287109.56943.063020100808195&theater " 9. If pidgin doesn't freeze resize the window very slowly and make it narrower until pidgin freezes. Actual results: Pidgin freezes Expected results: Pidgin shouldn't freeze Additional info: elb from #pidgin thinks that this might be related to pango. Another interesting bug is #673830. I wasn't able to reproduce the bug with a wider window (627 x 544) or with the Droid fonts from Google.

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 11:54:06 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version' of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX. (Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.) Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on "Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that version of Fedora. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

pidgin froze when I pasted some text in a window. I'm using pidgin-2.10.5-1.fc17.x86_64 and pango-1.30.0-1.fc17.x86_64.

Comment 10 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-03 23:36:54 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '17'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 11 Akira TAGOH 2013-07-09 05:16:45 EDT
Does this issue still persist on even f19 say?
Comment 12 Cristian Ciupitu 2013-07-09 16:04:45 EDT
I haven't upgraded to Fedora 19 yet, but if I remember correctly it happened to me once on Fedora 18. Anyway, I've tried to reproduce it again right now, but I either had no luck or the software is working as it should. If it happens again I'll reopen this bug.
Comment 13 Akira TAGOH 2013-07-09 23:28:55 EDT
Sure. thanks for the comment. I'll close this so far against it. please reopen when you see this again.
