Description Jens Petersen 2006-12-07 23:58:40 EST
Description of problem:
gedit uses the same process when run on different desktops (X sessions)
by the same user.  This doesn't work will with gtk immodules and also
seems somewhat unintuitive for users anyway.

Further if you try to run gedit as root (with su) on two different
desktop, the second invocation causes gedit to crash.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. su -c gedit on :0
2. su -c gedit on :1
Actual results:
- gedit crashes

Expected results:
- no crash
- gedit to use one process per display

Additional info:
This problem has existed for a good while.
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-04-02 15:37:38 EDT
Bastien, should gedit be appending the display to the string it passes to
bacon_message_connection_new () ?
Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2007-04-03 13:06:51 EDT
The upstream patch looks fine to me:

There's already support for multi-head in gedit, it was fixed in 2.14 at
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 14:46:14 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
