Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2908
Gnome/Enlightenment dumps core on reboots
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 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.

OK here is the GDB report of the core file. Drivemount_applet
in Gnome does a core dump.
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.

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.
