Description of problem:

Random Terminal crash when closing tab with multiple tabs opened.

The bug was not appears with fc7 (maybe this is gtk2/glib2/vte issue).
Gnome-terminal also use vte but seems not have this bug.

Also no bug with older gtk2/glib2 (just remember bug with xfwm
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=243735 maybe both problems
is connected)

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

Terminal-0.2.6-2.fc7 (also recompiled this and older versions have same bug)


How reproducible:

Open random number of tabs (15-30) using Ctrl-Shift-T.
Then close tabs one-by-one using Ctrl-D.

90% Terminal will crash when closing some tab.

Try several times.

Additional info:

gdb Terminal core

Comment 1 Kevin Fenzi 2007-07-16 15:57:59 UTC
Odd. Can you try installing the debuginfo and running Terminal from gdb and
getting a full backtrace?


- yum --enablerepo=fedora-debuginfo install Terminal-debuginfo
- gdb /usr/bin/Terminal
- duplicate crash

A look upstream doesn't show any bug like this reported, but yeah, it could be a
glib or vte version issue thats in rawhide only. 

Thanks for the bug report!

Installed debuginfos:


Seems bug with input pty's handling...

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2007-07-16 18:02:14 UTC
Excellent. Thanks for the backtrace.

I have reported this upstream to see if they can spot the issue. 
I suspect it's either a vte bug, or Terminal doing something new vte doesn't


Comment 4 denis ivanov 2007-07-28 11:12:50 UTC
No updates from upstream! ;-( Seems Oliver's team ignores this bug.

Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2007-07-29 02:13:07 UTC
Well, as far as I know Oliver doesn't have a 'team'... and it looks like he is
moving and without net for a bit:


Hopefully he will have a chance to look at it soon. 

Comment 6 denis ivanov 2007-08-25 20:25:01 UTC
Seems no bug after update to today's rawhide with Terminal-0.2.6-3.fc8
Where I can check what is changed in 0.2.6-3 comparing to 0.2.6-2 ?

Comment 7 Kevin Fenzi 2007-08-26 17:39:53 UTC
The only 2 items changed were: 

Add patch for CVE-2007-3770.
Update License tag

I sure doubt either of them are the solution here. I suspect it was some library
it needed to rebuilt against and the rebuild fixed it then?

If you can confirm this is fixed I will go ahead and close this. 
Feel free to file a new report or reopen this one if you see it happen again. 

Comment 8 denis ivanov 2007-08-27 09:29:36 UTC
Just tested. 99 sure all is ok now. Please close this and also please inform
upstream to close bug on their bugzilla. Thanks! ;)

Comment 9 Kevin Fenzi 2007-08-27 15:26:14 UTC
ok, will do.

Thanks again for the bug report!
