Description James Pearson 2018-03-08 14:01:07 UTC
Description of problem:

Dragging and dropping tabs causes mate-terminal to crash  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

mate-terminal-1.16.3-1.el7
CentOS 7.4

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch mate-terminal
2. Open a tab (File -> Open Tab)
3. Left mouse button drag a tab and drop the tab in the same terminal window

Actual results:

mate-termial crashes with:

(mate-terminal:16249): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

(mate-terminal:16249): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_container_get_focus_child: assertion 'GTK_IS_CONTAINER (container)' failed

(mate-terminal:16249): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

(mate-terminal:16249): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_container_get_focus_child: assertion 'GTK_IS_CONTAINER (container)' failed
**
Gtk:ERROR:gtkwidget.c:5813:gtk_widget_get_frame_clock: assertion failed: (window != NULL)

Expected results:

No crash!

Additional info:

Downloading and rebuilding locally the mate-terminal-1.16.3-1.el7.src.rpm from EPEL and then installing the rebuilt RPM 'fixes' the issue

i.e. a straight rebuild of the SRPM works fine

I'm guessing the 1.16.3-1 EPEL binary may have been built against an earlier EL7 release - and 'something' has changed with EL7.4 that causes mate-terminal to crash ?

Comment 1 James Pearson 2018-03-09 11:53:21 UTC
The same mate-terminal 1.16.3 running on el7.3 doesn't have this problem

So it looks like mate-terminal needs to be rebuilt on el7.4 to run on el7.4 ?

Comment 2 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2018-03-09 19:56:08 UTC
Confirmed that a rebuild fixes the issue.
New build coming soon.

Do you need me to provide any feedback via the above link ?
(unsurprisingly, the rebuild works fine)

Karma from  a registered user with fas account is only needed if you don't want to wait 2 weeks before the update will be pushed to stable.
