Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240691
system clock change and form timer
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:04 EST
Description of problem:
If the system clock is corrected backwards after newtFormRun is called and a
form timer is used it can appear to hang.
This is shown by the spinner in test.c with the attached patch.
Created attachment 155058 [details]
modify test.c to change system time to reproduce spinner hang
Created attachment 155059 [details]
and a sanity check to reset form->lastTimeout if current system time is less
than time of lastTimeout
Fixed in upstream cvs, will be in the next newt release. Thanks.
Fixed in newt-0.52.7-1.fc8.
