Description Telsa Gwynne 2000-07-17 05:13:05 EDT
Start gtop. After about ten seconds or so, it simply
'goes away'. Starting from a terminal gets some error
messages: I have snipped the first twenty or so lines
of "Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate loadable module in module_path:

Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate loadable module in module_path:
Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate loadable module in module_path:
Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate loadable module in module_path:
GnomeUI-WARNING **: Could not open help topics file NULL
glibtop: glibtop_get_proc_state (): Client requested field mask 0000f, but
only have 0000c.
glibtop: open (/proc/stat): Too many open files

Wasn't sure whether this is gtop's fault or libgtop's. 
Also, I say 'after about ten seconds'. What usually
happens is that I get bored waiting, start to move the
mouse to place a window over/beneath it because that's
what was happening the first crash, and it crashes before
I can move the window. Dunno whether it's related. I doubt
it: I'm just being completist.

I've seen this happen in Pinstripe now also.
Also, the process names often have garbage characters in them, especially at the
end of the name.
Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2000-07-28 14:18:05 EDT
I've verified this bug separately - was waiting for the author to reply, I
suppose I will have to start making a more serious effort.
Comment 3 Glen Foster 2000-07-30 19:04:18 EDT
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Release-Candidate #1
Comment 4 Chris Evans 2000-07-31 18:49:37 EDT
I was just about to log this :-)
I see copious garbage characters and the 10 second or so crash
Comment 5 Pekka Pietikäinen 2000-08-01 10:08:31 EDT
WORKSFORME (tm) after upgrading to libgtop-1.0.7. 1.0.6 apparently forgets to
close the files
in /proc it opens.
