Description Thomas Haller 2015-09-30 15:44:23 UTC
nmtui can crash during activation.

This is fixed in upstream. Needs to be backported.
See upstream bug https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=755883


1.) start nmtui in one terminal and activate a connection that asks for secret (and just leave the password-dialog haning).

2.) in another terminal, start nmtui and activate another connection so that you would also see the password dialog there.

Instead of the password dialog, #2 crashes.

btw. the patch is very trivial and quite obviously correct:


so, low-risk patch :)

Reproduced crasher with -13. Verified the TUI crash does not happen with NetworkManager-1.0.6-14.el7.
