Description Havoc Pennington 2004-11-17 17:24:55 EST
This has been reproduced on multiple systems.

From our testing, it looks like the "cdplayer_applet2" application
only crashes if it is removed from the panel while a disc is paused -
it does not crash if the disc is playing or stopped, only when it is

To reproduce this problem, I did the following:
   * right-clicked the panel
   * clicked Add To Panel -> Multimedia -> CD Player
   * inserted a music CD in the disc tray
   * clicked the play button and let the disc start playing
   * clicked the pause button
   * right-clicked the panel application
   * clicked Remove From Panel

At that point, the application was removed from the panel and I saw the
following error message pop up:

Application "cdplayer_applet2" (process <pid>) has crashed due to a
fatal error. (Aborted)

In my next update, I'll attach a screenshot of the error.

There's nothing immediately obvious in the applet code relating to
exit under pause, or changes in/around the pause or exit handling.

However, this is very easy to reproduce. 

Escalating to SE.

This has been escalated upstream (on 5-21) since it was clearly
documented on how to reproduce.

This was marked with internal status of Waiting on Sustaining, but
wasn't escalated.  Based on Norm's note, I think he intended to
escalate and some error occured.  Hence, I'm escalating now.  Thanks, Rik.

This looks like it could be it:


Trivial patch attached there

Fixed in gnome-applets-2.2.2-2.1E.

Errata is RHBA-2004:649, will be in RHEL3 U5
Comment 3 Jay Turner 2005-03-04 00:11:25 EST
Reopening because the errata tool will close these issues when the
errata is released.
Comment 4 Dennis Gregorovic 2005-05-19 23:25:54 EDT
