Description Justin Georgeson 2004-02-21 13:03:14 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040207 Firefox/0.8

Description of problem:
If I open a file in Nautilus for which there is no configured
apploication, I am prompted to either Associate Application or Cancel.
If I click the button to Associate Application, I am presented with a
crash window for gnome-file-types-properties. This seems to be limited
to certain files or file types. Specific files this has been
consistent on are /usr/share/alsa/asla.conf and
/usr/share/alsa/sndo-mixer.alisp. A file which Nautilus has not given
me the crash dialog for, but has still failed to launch the
gnome-file-type-properties application, are
/usr/share/doc/alsa-utils-1.0.2. This happens in both Browse view, and
whatever the new default behavior for Nautilus is called.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Nautilus and navigate to /usr/share/alsa
2. Click, or double-click depending on settings, on alsa.conf
3. Click the button for Associate Application

Actual Results:  a crash dialog is presented, giving me the option to
dismiss or file a bug report.

Expected Results:  gnome-file-type-properties should launch so I can
associate an application.

Ugh, should have previewed better, the file which doesn't crash, but
also doesn't launch gnome-file-types-properties, is
Comment 2 Justin Georgeson 2004-02-28 02:52:41 EST
Well, I guess bugzilla just doesn't like the filename I gave it. I
think it was c hangelog. Anyhow, all those files listed have mime
types for them now after updating what seems like everything.
control-center is now at 2.5.3-1 and I haven't found a file yet to
crash it. Consider it fixed.

I've seen this issue with .spec not being associated, making Nautilus
segfault. Can't reproduce it anymore, so I also think it has been
fixed by now.

I think this was fixed with a recent nautilus upgrade.
Comment 5 Justin Georgeson 2004-03-19 11:01:49 EST
I know I tested this after a big update a while ago, and seem to
remember adding a comment that it had been fixed, but I don't see that
comment. So I agree, I think it has been fixed.
