Description Kenneth Topp 2003-07-22 03:55:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686) Gecko/20030702 Galeon/1.3.6

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):

How reproducible:

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
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-07-28 15:28:29 EDT
Owen: is this the same as the bug about the file selector that was an underlying
glibc problem?
Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2003-07-28 15:47:00 EDT
Yeah, I'd be pretty positive of that.
