Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190516
ethereal crashes when capture statistics window is closed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:09 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch ethereal
2. ctrl+k, start capturing
3. helper window with capture statistics (percentage of used protocols, time,
stop button) is opened; close it by the close button on window decoration
created by your window manager, not by the internal Stop button
Segfault. Sometimes it's silent crash, sometimes with these details:
Gtk-WARNING **: invalid class type `(unknown)' in cast to `GtkProgressBar'
Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtkprogressbar.c: line 750 (gtk_progress_bar_update):
assertion `GTK_IS_PROGRESS_BAR (pbar)' failed.
Gtk-WARNING **: invalid unclassed pointer in cast to `GtkLabel'
Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtklabel.c: line 261 (gtk_label_set_text): assertion
`GTK_IS_LABEL (label)' failed.
capturing is stopped and the main window displays captured data, or possibly
just cancelled capturing, but no crash
Reproduced also on RHEL-2.1. No crash on RHEL-4, just a few GLib-GObject
Bug fixed in rawhide, ethereal-1.1.0-0.svn.3. This bug will be fixed in RHEL
with next security update. Not a high priroty issue, lowering severity.
Closing, bug fixed with wireshark-0.99.1 release
