Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 309251
gparted crashes after re-scanning devices
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
Description of problem:
After performing operations (or on request), gparted re-scans the disks, then
vanishes leaving no error messages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gparted
2. Select menu GParted -> Refresh Devices
gparted window vanishes
Rescan completes and gparted stays up, ready for additional operations.
Looking at the problem, the GtkComboBox on the toolbar that displays the list of
devices uses a GtkListStore as its underlying model. When Refresh Devices is
called the GtkListStore is cleared, this causes the function connected to the
"changed" signal of the GtkComboBox to be called. This causes the segfault by
trying to set the value of the GtkComboBox to an invalid value.
The simplest way I see to work around this is to simply block the "changed"
signal from being emitted when Refresh Devices is called.

This patch blocks the "changed" signal of the GtkComboBox when Refresh Devices
Thanks Jim for the patch. However I have other issue with building the package
on rawhide (bz #313281), I'll work on integrating the patch once the other issue
I haven't seen the issue with bug #313281. But I can add a patch for it too. ;-)
Jim to the rescue again, thanks. Let me know if you're interested in being a
co-maintainer for this package.
I've applied the patch, new package already built.
