Description Luis Villa 2003-09-26 03:14:09 UTC
This works fine on a local RH9 box with the abiword-provided packages, or over X
from that selfsame box. But when I run on 9.0.93+all rawhide updates, I get
this, after splash screen and partial display of the UI: 

[louie@localhost louie]$ AbiWord-2.0
*** attempt to put segment in horiz list twice
*** attempt to put segment in horiz list twice
The program 'AbiWord' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 2546 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

GDB is not showing me the love tonight, though, maybe tomorrow. Thought I'd file
in the meantime and see if maybe it's not just me.

Hrmm, works fine for me here on my laptop and also works for me on my desktop at
work.  The X error is potentially telling -- what resolution/bit depth are you
running and which X driver?

Will try to poke on a fresh install, too

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-10-21 20:29:52 UTC
Works fine on a fresh install with i865 video running at 1024x768/24bpp as well.

Which X server are you using?

Comment 3 Bojan Smojver 2003-10-23 04:24:08 UTC
Problem on ATI Radeon (generic) for me. Works fine on ATI Rage 128 Pro Ultra.
These are two different machines, of course. Go figure...

Comment 4 Bojan Smojver 2003-10-23 04:26:14 UTC
Version should be changed to Beta 3, as that's the latest version where it still

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2003-10-23 19:29:01 UTC
Can you get a backtrace of the segfault?

Comment 6 Bojan Smojver 2003-10-23 20:58:31 UTC
Sorry, it just says "No stack." My guess is that it is due to the nature of the
error - Abiword shuts down because of the errors elsewhere. Anything else I can try?

Comment 8 Christopher Stone 2003-11-07 03:06:18 UTC
ugh, as I stated in the dup bug posted above, this problem is easily
fixed by starting abiword with a geometry setting:

$ abiword --geometry 800x600

Once you do that, it will be fixed.

Comment 9 Elijah Newren 2003-11-12 20:15:33 UTC
This bug also exists in the AbiWord bugzilla database at

I added tkmame's suggestion to that bug.  Oh, and thanks tkmame!  It
worked like a charm for me!

Comment 10 Caolan McNamara 2004-07-23 06:52:44 UTC
Should be all ok in abiword now, certainly can't reproduce it with
