Description Thomas J. Baker 2006-12-08 20:57:31 UTC
Description of problem:

Trying to run gnome-background-properties hangs for me. This is probably the
first time I've run it since I upgraded to FC6.

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


How reproducible:

Seems everytime I run it. 

Here is the tail end of a gdb session with it. It prints the GdkPixbuf errors by
the thousands. I finally just control-c'd it and did a backtrace:

Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2007-02-14 13:07:57 UTC
This looks quite bizarre to me. Could you please reproduce the problem with the
control-center-debuginfo, glib2-debuginfo and gtk2-debuginfo packages installed,
and gather a backtrace again?

Comment 2 Brenton D. Rothchild 2007-02-14 15:50:52 UTC
I have been seeing this bug for some time on my box running out of devel and
just got around to having be annoying enough to find this BZ.

I've added an attachment of a gdb session with the control-center-debuginfo,
glib2-debuginfo, and gtk2-debuginfo packages installed.

I don't know if this is what you need to see, but please let me know if you need
different information.

GDB session of gnome-background-properties

Comment 4 Brenton D. Rothchild 2007-02-14 15:57:38 UTC
Also, I guess this might help! :)

$ rpm -q --queryformat '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n' \
control-center glib2 gtk2


$ cat /etc/fedora-release 
Fedora release 6.90 (Rawhide)

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-02-14 20:17:58 UTC
Thanks Brenton, for the information.

This might be my fault.  At one point I had a buggy thumbnail patch in.  I don't
know if I fixed it before FC-6 or not.  If not, I should grab it from the RHEL
branch or from upstream and do an update.

Comment 6 Thomas J. Baker 2007-02-16 20:18:06 UTC
I still see this with control-center-2.16.3-11.fc6.i386. Do you need another
backtrace? If so I can install the debuginfos and get one.
