Description Jeremy Handcock 2003-11-19 15:19:04 EST
Description of problem:
This NPE showed up a few times when testing CDT debug.  This has to do
with the hover help stuff that pops up when you move your mouse over a
variable in the source file while debugging, and it displays the
current value of the variable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Debug a program using CDT debug
2. Try using the debug hover help capability
Actual results: I get this printed out on the console where I started
eclipse, with nothing in the .log file:

Exception in thread "Text Viewer Hover Presenter"
         at org.eclipse.jface.text.TextViewerHoverManager$2.run()
            at _Jv_ThreadRun(java.lang.Thread) (/lib/ssa/libgcj.so.4.0.0)
               at GC_start_routine (/lib/ssa/libgcj.so.4.0.0)
                  at __clone (/lib/tls/libc-2.3.2.so)

... will investigate further and move the PR upstream.

Jeremy, I'm assigning these to you for triage, since you said
on the list you'd be looking at them.
Comment 2 Jeremy Handcock 2003-12-17 11:41:06 EST
I've been able to reproduce this both when running with libgcj and
with the IBM JVM.  Whenever I fire up a debug session and mouse-over
something I expect a hover-help box from, I am getting this exception.
 I'm looking at it now.
Comment 3 Jeremy Handcock 2004-01-07 14:48:47 EST
I found a fix for this in the upstream 1.2.1 branch (from Mikhail
Khodjaiants at QNX), so I checked in the patch here too.  Closing.

Moving from RHEL/3/Eclipse to Red Hat Developer Suite product.
