Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 158783
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:06 EST
Description of problem:
GIMP can crash while using the file chooser. It doesn't always happen,
unfortunately, but at least there is a core dump.
I'm reporting this against GIMP since that's where the symptoms occur, although
the crash happens in gtk2/glib2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Once in a while.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open nautilus on a directory of JPEGs.
2. Start GIMP and load several of the JPEGs from that directory
3. Close some of the GIMP image windows
4. In nautilus, remove the corresponding JPEG files
5. In GIMP, File->Open that directory
Here is a backtrace. I'm afraid gdb isn't very helpful. :-(
Created attachment 114846 [details]
I've found a bug upstream at the gnome bugzilla --
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=305206 -- that my be related even
thought the backtrace looks different, if it is it may be a problem in
gnome-vfs2 rather than the gimp.
Given that gdb apparently can't quite handle the core file, can you please run
the gimp with "--stack-trace-mode always" from a terminal window and get a stack
trace from the running process when it crashes again? Additionally to the trace
above I'm interested in a "bt" trace as well, this way I can look at the call
trace more directly.
my -> may, call trace -> call stack
Can you reproduce the problem in current Rawhide?
This is a really hard problem to isolate. It has happened many times on FC4
since I reported it, but attempts to track down exactly what's going on have
failed. I don't even have a how-to-reproduce for it. :-(
gimp-2.2.8-0.fc4.2 certainly still has the problem.
I am not yet in a position to try rawhide on the only machine that exhibits the
problem, I'm afraid.
Please report back once you get the chance to try this on FC5. Thanks!
