ABRT deduplication wrong, at least for X
Last modified: 2015-01-09 16:50:12 EST
Description of problem:
ABRT decides that distinct X crashes are the same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Don't know. It has happened to my more than once.
Steps to Reproduce:
Crash X; see where ABRT takes you.
Many errors are mapped by ABRT to bz 1003221.
See for example:
Look at my comments #27 and #29. I think that the original bug report and my two are three distinct X crashes.
My GUESS is that since the X server catches signals and turns them into SIGABRT, the deduplicating code thinks all these errors are the same. The top entries of the backtrace are going to look alike because the same signal handler is used to handle the diverse underlying signals.
In this particular case, the consequence is probably quite bad: many errors are ignored because the first report is tainted by using the unsupported-by-Fedora/RedHat/Xorg proprietary Catalyst driver.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
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.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 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 this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
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.
Thank you for the bug report. This particular bug was fixed and a update package was published for download for this Fedora release. (See bug #1068767).
