Frequent crashing when opening files
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:
Totem tends to hang or crash on opening files quite frequently on Development
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Close to 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. click media file, select open with Totem
Totem will now hang requiring a forceful exit or crash with the attached
backtrace. Repeatedly attempting to open the file will eventually lead to
Correct playback for all supported media types.

backtrace of crash
Looks like the upstream fix:
2007-01-30 Tim-Philipp Müller <tim at centricular dot net>
* src/totem-menu.c: (create_lang_actions):
Don't let hash table take ownership of and free strings that it
doesn't own (causes crashes in totem_sublang_update() when accessing
already freed memory or trying to free it again); also fix up hash
table usage so that it really detects equal language strings.
I'll need to make a new release...
I patched up totem and it's like magic, things work again.. Tim is a regular
hero as always.
Fixed in totem-2.17.91-1.fc7
