Description Suhaib Siddiqi 1999-05-18 10:25:36 EDT
RedHat 6.0 does core dump, if Gnome/Enlightment is used
as desktop.  If I use AfterStep or anyother desktop windows
manager, core file is not created.

On each reboot Gnome/Enlightment creates a *core* file
under /root, though system boots and works OK.  It is
annoying to see *core* in /root on each rebot of RedHat 6.0

Try to use gdb to determine which program is causing the core dump.  I
can not get gnome/enlightenment to fail.

Comment 2 Suhaib Siddiqi 1999-05-18 20:45:59 EDT
OK here is the GDB report of the core file.  Drivemount_applet
in Gnome does a core dump.
--GDB/DDD output---
Core was generated by 'drivemount_applet --activate-goad-server
Program terminated with signal 6, Aborted
#0 0x40416111 in ?? ()
Removing drivemount option from Factory installed settings stops
producing core dump.

I am able to recreate this in the lab.

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 1999-07-06 12:01:59 EDT
This will be fixed soon in a gnome-core and gtk+ update.

It has to do with how GNOME/GTK+ programs handled the case
where they could no longer talk to the X server.  For debugging
purposes a core file was created. This behaviour will be changed.
