Description of problem:
Opening this bug as an offshoot of the following BZ. The bug report below was originally opened against tigervnc-server, but the problem is actually localized to the glibc package:
1413085 - tigervnc-server segmentation fault
This has been observed within the Fedora 21 release, and addressed:
1184234 - apparent glibc bug causes gnucash to segfault on startup when LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set to nonexistent directory
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set an invalid LD_LIBRARY_PATH
# export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/pathtonothing
2. Start the vncserver
# vncserver -geometry 1280x1024"
Graceful continue or exit
The upstream issue has been reported in:
15378 – Segmentation fault when LD_LIBRARY_PATH contains (only) non-existings paths
Thanks for reporting this. We will be looking at this bug as part of our review for RHEL 7.5. If you need a fix sooner please add more information to this bug report. The immediate workaround is to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH in such a way as to avoid the issue.
