image that triggers this issue
Description of problem:
The nautilus desktop crashes when a users right clicks on an image that is stored on the desktop and selects properties.
The first time, the icons on the desktop are gone and come back after a second or so. The second time, the entire desktop session crashes.
[44195.865596] nautilus-deskto: segfault at 10 ip 00007fe21593a890 sp 00007fffee03c388 error 4 in libexempi.so.3.2.2[7fe2158b5000+115000]
This looks similar to the bug reported in the ubuntu bug tracker:
According to that report, it should be fixed in 2.1.1, so it may still be another bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in on the default gnome session of RHEL 7.4
2. Copy a png or jpg file to your ~/Desktop
3. Right-click the file and select properties
4. Repeat step 3
GNOME session crashes after doing it twice
Dialog that shows the properties of the image.
In case this bug depends on the content of the image file, in attach an image that easily reproduces the issue here.
This needs to be fixed in Nautilus. It crashes because exempi is not initialized.

Add missing xmp_init() to nautilus-desktop main()
Do we have any idea when an update will be available for RHEL 7?
Thanks Nikola for the patch, it looks good. We have a similar fix upstream.
Regarding 7.4, it depends on product management approval. I'm happy to apply patch + build if you manage to convince product management.

Patch to apply to the spec for rhel-7.5
Scratch build with the patch: https://brewweb.engineering.redhat.com/brew/taskinfo?taskID=14450852
Now it's up to you to convince pm to have this in the version you want :)
Hey Vinay, here is a new one. https://brewweb.engineering.redhat.com/brew/taskinfo?taskID=14653925
It's based on rhel 7.5, but it shouldn't be a problem
same issue here in centos 7.4.1708, hope to fix it .
