Description robert meyer 2015-08-30 11:46:58 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
looks normal.

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[22702] 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
see description.

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
if I actually work with virt-manager, everything is great. 
it only seems to misbehave when I leave it alone for a short while.

host info:
[root@myserver somedir]# uname -a
Linux myserver 3.10.0-229.1.2.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Mar 27 03:04:26 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

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
