Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 199079
Trying to view License from Help menu locks up game.
Last modified: 2016-09-19 22:37:20 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.
Cannot reproduce with FC5. It takes awhile, then displays the GPL in the
help browser: Menu > Help > License
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).
Created attachment 132556 [details]
strace of wesnoth while trying to read the License from the help menu.
On rawhide, it takes something from 90 to 300 seconds until it displays
the licence text. Where exactly it chokes, remains to be examined.
will be fixed in 1.0.2-3.fc6
