Description of problem: Make display-properties dialog frequently terminates with SIGSEGV when updating video mode. Only happens when VGA attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
More often then not, when adjusting display resolution after boot
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with VGA-attached display
2. Kernel/X11 combo gives minimal resolution
3. Run mate-display properites to correct.... select resolution, hit ENTER.
abrt traceback (which is not handled correctly on ppc64)
- See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1119072
Display resolution set
GDB traceback is same as that abrt had issues with (resolved, need build of fix).
Also am getting occasional SIGSEGV for Caja that may be due to same underlying problem.
Other reports (generated by abrt and otherwise) for similar bug on other archs.
