fontconfig breaks firefox
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:44:17 EST
Description of problem:
Latest fontconfig breaks firefox. Firefox quits without error mesage before
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

0x00000037d6518b7e in FcCharSetCopy () from /usr/lib64/libfontconfig.so.1
Problem fixed by reverting to fontconfig-2.3.2-1
I am running i386 version of firefox-1.5-0.5.0.beta2 on my X86_64 system and
it is working fine with the new fontconfig-cvs (I do this so that I can use plugins like
flash, etc which do not have 86_64 versions).
So, it seems like something may be wrong in the X86_64 version of fontconfig-cvs.
I don't know. I re-upgraded to fontconfig-2.3.91.cvs20051017-1 today, after
today's other rawhide uprades, and now I can't recreate the problem.
I tried with my regular .mozilla/firefox/ configuration, and with that moved
aside to get a vanilla configuration.
The other thing I've done since yesterday is to log out and log back in, so
perhaps there was a corrupted font cache thats been cleared now.
Probably we should abandon this report unless I can recreate it.
Changed to: WORKSFORME.
