Description Alan Cox 2006-10-03 08:59:01 EDT
Description of problem:
On shutdown bluez-utils segfaults which is logged to console as a NULL pointer
dereference in the user space app by the x86-64 kernel. This oddly doesn;t occur
if I do
service stop/start  only at shutdown.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot
2. Shutdown

Happens with no bluetooth devices are attached to the system

Please update to bluez-utils-3.7 (in the repo at http://david.woodhou.se/bluez/)
and retest.

Failing that, find some way to debug it and show me what happened :)
Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2006-10-03 09:03:57 EDT
does it also SEGV if you stop messagebus before stopping it?
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2006-10-03 09:51:33 EDT
It did the once but no pattern

The fault repeatably is segv for address 0x30, rip: 0x00002aaaaacebfe8

I'll try your repository in a bit and update the bug then see what I can do to
debug it more
Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2006-10-03 17:42:28 EDT
The bluez-utils-3.7 package should fix this. Unfortunately, it has been decreed
that we will not ship the fixed package in FC6.

I'll do an erratum after the FC6 release.
Comment 5 Alan Cox 2006-10-03 17:50:27 EDT
Fair enough, its not exactly anything but an ugly glitch on shutdown

Will verify 3.7 once I have a moment
Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2006-10-26 12:20:00 EDT
bluez-utils-3.7-2 bluez-gnome-0.6-1.fc6 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
