xscreensaver - rd-bomb consitently bombs
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:26 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #144580 +++
Description of problem:
I have in logs now eight messages of this nature:
kernel: rd-bomb: segfault at 0000002a9568b000
rip 0000000000403023 rsp 0000007fbfffeec0 error 6
Reported values are consistent with an exception of "rsp" which
moves a bit.
No idea if this happens on i386 or not.

This seems to be fixed in xscreensaver-4.22-18 in rawhide
Created attachment 132794 [details]
To reproduce the problem:
1. Get to a local console on a 64-bit machine
2. Launch "/usr/X11R6/lib/xscreensaver/rd-bomb -root"
3. See it crash
The attached patch is a (simple!) backport from xscreensaver-4.22-18 and was
tested as fixing the problem.
Work-around is to disable the rd-bomb hack (remove the lines containing
"rd-bomb" in ~/.xscreensaver, or disable them in the screensaver preferences)
