Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 222509
handle updating of ~/.xmms/config safely
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
Description of problem:
xmms writes ~/.xmms/config in a not-so-safe-way.
when xmms crashes or system blows up while xmms is writing config file,
on next xmms startup you are probably left with empty/invalid config file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. save config
2. have bad luck
~/.xmms/config contains garbage or is empty
~/.xmms/config having earlier contents prior to crash
playlist seems to be written badly, too, but that's another issue...
in case someone cares.
