Description Lawrence Lim 2005-03-03 01:40:03 EST
Description of problem:
oowriter keep experiencing seg fault when used with im-sdk.

Tried to reproduce in en_US locale but the error did not surfaced.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openoffice.org-1.1.2-20.6.EL4 in dist-U1
im-sdk-12.1-12.EL in dist-U1-HEAD

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.LANG=zh_TW.UTF-8 oowriter
2.CTRL-SPACE to activate LE
3.enter 'a' 4 times
4.right mouse click on anywhere in the text area of oowriter till oowriter seg
fault  (took me 4 clicks)

Actual results:
Seg fault

Expected results:
No seg fault

Additional info:
I tried Dan's recent libvclplug_gtk645li.so patch and it is able to stop the seg
fault from occuring.

llim: openoffice.org-1.1.2-21.6.EL4 in dist-4E-U1-HEAD should correct this crash.
Comment 3 Leon Ho 2005-03-03 17:53:19 EST
llim: good QA'ing in U1

New im-sdk in -HEAD need to be pushed *along* with OOo to get this fix as well.
We cannot risk to have a crashing system.
Comment 4 Dan Williams 2005-03-04 01:35:49 EST
->modified since current builds (-21 and -22) have this fix.  It involves
protecting calls to gtk_im_context_reset() so that while inside the
gtk_im_context_reset() we don't allow recursion, similar to the "need_im_reset"
stuff in GTK+.  Segfault was actually a stack overflow due to this recursion.
Comment 5 Lawrence Lim 2005-04-06 00:28:06 EDT
Tested with openoffice.org-1.1.2-22.6.EL4 against CJKI locale, confirmed this
has been fixed.
Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2005-05-04 12:31:05 EDT
did this one get shipped ?
Comment 7 Lawrence Lim 2005-05-05 02:03:53 EDT
Took the chance to test with openoffice.org-1.1.2-24.6.0.EL4, cant reproduce the
bug anymore.
