Description of problem:
Evince crashes on drag and drop of images in PDF. Crash seems to occur on DND of a very particular image. Backtrace below. Dragging another image generated an X error (see below).

Image 2:
The program 'evince' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
  (Details: serial 4462 error_code 8 request_code 59 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. DND a particular image.

MeToo. Backtrace under the debugger (with debuginfo installed) is:

This only started happening with the recent update to 0.4.0. I've seen it on
quite a few pdfs; for me crashes 100% if you click and drag arrond the middle of
the contents page of

(Should be severity: High since its a crash, but I can't change that)

Comment 3 Kristian Høgsberg 2006-09-22 20:55:12 UTC
This has been fixed, should work with evince 0.6 from rawhide.
