Description charles harris 2006-10-07 13:31:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Editing and existing file, choosing Save As from the menu, typing in a file
name, and hitting save leads to program termination with the error message:

Gtk-ERROR **: file gtkfilechooserdefault.c: line 8174
(gtk_file_chooser_default_should_respond): assertion failed: (path != NULL)
Vim: Caught deadly signal ABRT
Vim: Finished.
The save goes OK if a directory is specified. In any case, I think gvim should
issue an error message instead of terminating, or at least have a default
directory. If gvim is opened without specifying a file and Save As is used after
editing the buffer there is no problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start gvim from terminal to edit existing file
2.Select save as from menu and type in file name
3.Hit save
Actual results:

Expected results:

This may be tangentially related, I am also seeing the message

bad async reply GVIM

emitted by an application that embeds gvim. It was working fine until the last
yum update.
Comment 2 Karsten Hopp 2007-08-29 10:44:00 EDT
this should be fixed with any vim version later than 7.0.129:
 7.0.129  GTK GUI: avoid GTK bug concerning directory for file dialog
