Description Alan Hamilton 2004-05-13 03:00:25 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
At GUI startup, the taskbar appears at the bottom, but the desktop
stays  black and a 'The Application "nautilus" has quit unexpectedly.'
dialog appears.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Type startx at command line


Actual Results:  Error dialog appears.

Expected Results:  Desktop should start up.

Additional info:

The bug appears to be heap corruption that somehow related to
/etc/fstab.  I have a USB flash card reader that I removed to see if
it was the cause.  Nautilus started successfully after this.  I
discovered that the contents of fstab were causing it.  If I remove
the entries related to the flash reader from fstab (with the reader
still attatched) it works.   Or if I replace the /dev/fd0 line with
one of the flash reader lines it works.

I tried reinstalling FC2 test 3, and it still occurs.  The stack trace
is different, but it's still crashing in a "free" function.

Just a note to say that this still happens in FC2 Final.
