Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1248530
openjdk causes a full desktop crash on RHEL 6 i586
Last modified: 2016-05-10 15:42:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Changing setting in TCK configuration window 2 times causes gnome to spawn lots of new items in taskbar. Pressing Alt+Tab causes immediate crash of all windows and sometimes full X restart.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the TCK UI window.
2. Open the configuration window, change the concurrency value, press done.
3. Open again the configuration window, change the concurrency value again, press done.
Multiple windows are spawned in taskbar, pressing Alt+Tab causes crash, waiting causes crash little later.
Everything should work as with icedtea 2.5.5.
Upstream oracle repo does not have the issue.
Reported to icedtea upstream: http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2568
Patch attached in upstream, duplicating here.
Created attachment 1057682 [details]
Duplicate of the fix attached to icedtea bugzilla.
This only occurs on i586 RHEL 6, so there's scope for getting that version fixed earlier than the next IcedTea update.
Verified, issue no longer reproducible with version 220.127.116.11-18.104.22.168.el6_7
