Description dpawluk 2000-08-01 11:49:36 EDT
if preferences dialog is displayed, program starts rapidly displaying
dialog boxes which disappear immediately. this goes on for quite some time
and then program crashes with segfault in gnorpm-auth.

Does that machine have networking set up?
Comment 2 dpawluk 2000-08-04 13:49:46 EDT
yes, networking is configured and working.
Comment 3 dpawluk 2000-08-04 13:55:50 EDT
i just tried preferences again and it opened normally. so i guess i can't
reproduce it. it may have been a temporary network condition i suppose, if
netwoking is involved in this opening. shaw@home has been screwing around a lot
lately with this new excite@home crap.
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2000-08-06 14:55:47 EDT
I can believe it, there are some amazingly stupid bugs in the Gnorpm network
handling code. 

Now if bugzilla is playing along I'll attach the fix for all the known webfind
side bugs..

Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2000-08-09 08:59:52 EDT
Please see if you can reproduce this problem after doing this:

$ rm -r ~/.gnome/gnorpm ~/.gnome/gnorpm.d
Comment 8 dpawluk 2000-08-09 11:21:06 EDT
deleted the gnorpm files. program doesn't crash just dialog boxes flashing away
and then finally the preferences dialog opens.
Comment 9 Preston Brown 2000-08-18 14:50:53 EDT
fixed in gnorpm-0.9-15 and later.
