Description Luke Macken 2006-07-17 00:29:02 EDT
During a game, clicking Menu->Help->License seems to freeze the game.  I've been
able to reproduce this on my rawhide laptop, and FC5 desktop.
Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2006-07-17 05:59:01 EDT
Cannot reproduce with FC5. It takes awhile, then displays the GPL in the
help browser: Menu > Help > License
Comment 2 Luke Macken 2006-07-17 12:13:58 EDT
My initial claim was incorrect.  I am unable to reproduce this on FC5, but this
issue still occurs on my rawhide machine.

Attached is an strace of wesnoth starting right before i click "License".  As
you can see, it flips out and _llseeks the same stuff over and over and over and
over (I trimmed the log down from 2 megs).

strace of wesnoth while trying to read the License from the help menu.
Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2006-07-18 05:29:31 EDT
On rawhide, it takes something from 90 to 300 seconds until it displays
the licence text. Where exactly it chokes, remains to be examined.
Comment 5 Michael Schwendt 2006-07-18 10:14:12 EDT
will be fixed in 1.0.2-3.fc6
