Description of problem:
This issue happens when I use glibc-57 (anything greater then like -42, in
fact). It turns out that I had a /etc/X11/applnk/Graphics/xv.desktop file that
had "Name=xv". It seems that only having two characters caused the bug... I
increased the length and the freeze went away.
I also have a galeon hanger which I hope has the same underlying bug. When I
save a file, depending on the contents of ~/, I will be able to save or not..
Seems like glibc-57 is triggering a bug in gtk+ (as the graphics freezes, and
glibc doesn't generally have such outstanding bugs). But I filed it hear anyway
I'll try ximians gtk2 before downgrading to glibc-27.9
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. get a .desktop file in /etc/X11/applnk/*/ with "Name=aa"
2. Click on the redhat
3. Click on "Run Program..."
Actual Results: dialog pops up, gtk2 freezes, strace notices a segfault
Expected Results: gtk2 doesn't freeze
ximian gtk2 didn't help.. but glibc-27.9 does the trick..
let me know if I can be of assistence in further debugging. Seems like an easy
enough case to run through a debugger. I just discoverd that "known programs"
dropdown.. was wondering why it was loading all desktop files then.. I wonder
who actually uses that dropdown
Owen: is this the same as the bug about the file selector that was an underlying
Yeah, I'd be pretty positive of that.
