Description of problem:
(This is basically bug 105624 but people claim not to be able to
reproduce it any more)
A user who had migrated from abiword on FC1 was unable to start
abiword under FC3. Closer inspection revealed some kerazee geometry
settings in ~/.AbiSuite/AbiWord.Profile
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy duff AbiWord.Profile to ~/.AbiSuite/AbiWord.Profile .
2. Start abiword.
abiword quits immediately. If launched from a terminal the following
he program 'AbiWord' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
(Details: serial 2514 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error()
User feels inadequate and blames themselves even though it wasn't
Abiword to work around/detect silly settings and select a sensible
window size and start.
User to moderately happy as everything works as normal. No blame
assignment is done by anyone.
The attached AbiWord.Profile is the smallest version I could make
which still reproduced the error. Deleting the errant lines or moving
the file resolved the problem and allowed abiword to start.
This is probably still bug 105624 /
Created attachment 107171 [details]
Errant abiword profile
Should be easy to fix, 2.2 is out and I'm building that with a fix for
this included as well. So should be good in 2.2.0-1
Patch also upstreamed as:
2.4.0-2 in rawhide fixes this wierdness
Will this fix (in any shape or form) make its way into FC3?
Now done as abiword-2.0.12-7.fc3.
