There shouldn't be a crash. Even after bug 1073440, will be fixed, we need to make sure the spice-xpi shouldn't crush.

Comment 3 Marc-Andre Lureau 2014-03-07 13:24:53 UTC
I can reproduce, the plugin tries to connect unsuccessfully to the unix socket for a few seconds, and the crashes.

Comment 4 Marc-Andre Lureau 2014-03-07 13:52:50 UTC
firefox by default will kill the plugin after 45s of hanging.

By default, the xpi plugin will take up to 55s... we can lower this to 10s imho, with 1 tries every 10s.. With this change, it no longer crashes.

Secondly, if the pipe is already connected, connect() returns -1 with EISCONN errno.

So this would fail immediately:
