Description Tim Waugh 2007-06-27 14:13:55 UTC
Description of problem:
When modifying a printer's default job options using system-config-printer,
occasionally the program will crash.  It doesn't seem to be repeatable by a
particular sequence of events, but does happen often when several options are
repeatedly added and removed.

NB: this is different from bug #230118, and occurs with fixed CUPS packages.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add three job options and click apply.
2.Remove the options and click apply.
3.Play around with adding and removing options, occasionally applying.
Actual results:
After several minutes the application crashes.

Expected results:
No crash.

Additional info:
Example backtrace (but each is different):

Created attachment 158015 [details]

I tried this back-ported rework of the other job options, but it had no effect.
