Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1258259
virt-manager crashes after several minutes when idle
Last modified: 2015-08-31 17:19:49 EDT
Description of problem:
I log in to my host with ssh -X user@host, and start virt-manager.
virt-manager displays on my screen as expected, and everything
I go off and do something else for 3 or 4 minutes.
when I return, it's gone.
I found these messages in /var/log/messages:
Aug 30 11:33:49 myserver kernel: traps: virt-manager trap stack segment ip:7fdb92f05c1a sp:7fffed84f590 error:0 in libpython2.7.so.1.0[7fdb92e80000+178000]

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
if I actually work with virt-manager, everything is great.
it only seems to misbehave when I leave it alone for a short while.

Thanks for the report, but Product=Virtualization Tools is for tracking bugs against upstream virt-manager, and you are using an older version.
Since your distro seems to support abrt, I suggest using gnome-abrt to submit the bug report to your distro
