Description Nathan G. Grennan 2004-04-17 07:38:46 UTC

Description of problem:
The first thing I noticed is it the popup to setup the settings for
the first time. Yet I have a ~/.pan directory and it loaded the other
settings from it after it loaded.

The second thing I noticed was that when I went into a news group it
only listed 1-2 messages. When I views the list of of results of
actions  it had some error, "Glib  - gnode.c: line 315
(g_node_insert_before): assertion `G_NODE_IS_ROOT (node)' failed".

The third thing I noticed is when I tried renaming ~/.pan and then
setting up a new server. It would ask if I wanted to download the list
of all newsgroups. I would click yes and it would not download the
list, but just add it to the queue in the task manager.

Note pan-0.14.2-3 works fine.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start pan
2. Go into newsgroup and find 1-2 messages it in
3. Look in results of actions and file error message.
4. Close pan
5. mv ~/.pan ~/pan
6. Start pan
7. Add news server
8. Answer yes to question about downloading list of all newsgroups
9. Open Task Manager

Actual Results:  See bugs

Expected Results:  None of the seen bugs

Additional info:

I suspect all of it is the result of one of the patches added after

Comment 1 Kaj J. Niemi 2004-04-18 02:24:18 UTC
Yeah.. pan 0.14.2-5 does funky things for me as well. It seems to
corrupt existing indexes, downgrading to 0.14.2-4 leaves all existing
groups broken.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2004-04-20 06:17:35 UTC
Thanks for the report.  Presumably it is due to one of these two changes
in -5:

- add pan-0.14.2-gmime-crash-120007.patch to fix crashing
- add pan-0.14.2-gcc34.patch to fix building with newer gcc (Jeff Law)

If you have time to find out which one of the two patches is breaking
things that would be much appreciated.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2004-04-20 06:52:23 UTC
There was feedback in bug 119299 that the former patch seems to work
ok, so could it be the latter?

Comment 4 Kaj J. Niemi 2004-04-20 08:42:09 UTC
Correct, pan built without Patch 8 (pan-0.14.2-gcc34.patch) works just

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2004-04-20 10:58:31 UTC
Agreed, so I'm disabling the patch in pan-0.14.2-6.

Comment 6 Seth Vidal 2004-05-07 16:27:58 UTC
apparently fixed, closing, reopen if it comes back.
