Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 192587
scim update causes kmail, knode to crash (SEGV) at startup
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
Latest scim (or libstdc++so7?) updates cause kmail, knode and kaffeine to
crash at startup. Other apps may also be affected but not all KDE apps crash,
for example kate, konqueror and kcontrol are all unaffected,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to scim-1.4.4-9.2.fc5, libstdc++so7-4.2.0-0.3.20060428
2. Start kmail, knode or kaffeine (kaffeine rpm from livna)
Application crashes at startup:
$ gdb knode
(gdb) set follow-fork-mode child
Starting program: /usr/bin/knode
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
[New Thread 46912496361792 (LWP 15325)]
Attaching after fork to child process 15329.
[New LWP 15329]
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

#0 0x00002aaaae519d52 in scim::QScimInputContext::metaObject ()
#1 0x0000000000000000 in ?? ()
Applications shouldn't crash
Reverting to scim-1.4.4-9.1.fc5 and libstdc++so7-4.2.0-0.3.20060203 makes the
problem go away with the same kdepim (3.5.2-0.4.fc5).
Created attachment 129790 [details]
backtrack for i386 machne is attached
During quit of the application on i386 machine, it is showing Signal 11 (SIGSEGV).
Back Track log file is attached
Seems to be the same as Bug #192788, removing scim-qtimm resolves the crashes
