From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.11) Gecko/20050815 Fedora/1.7.11-2

Description of problem:
I go to desktop->preferences->screensavers. If I make any change (i.e. check/uncheck a screen saver, change the directory for image grabbing, etc.) the program crashes without saving the changes.

This happens every time.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to desktop->preferences->screensavers
2. Attempt to make a change.

Actual Results:  Program crashes without error.
Ltrace attached.

Expected Results:  Change should have been activated.

Doesn't happen for me on FC4 x86; can you compile with -g and run xscreensaver-demo under gdb to 
give me a backtrace with symbol names?  Also, attach your .xscreensaver file.

Comment 4 Trever Adams 2005-08-18 22:43:43 EDT
I am not ultra familiar with SPEC files and such, so it will take me a bit to
figure out how to get the -g option in. However, this is rawhide not FC4.

I will try to get this to you this weekend.

Hi Jamie,

Above is a patch that I'm building into rawhide now. I think it should solve
the problem.
