Description Karsten Hopp 2001-03-13 04:48:11 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [de] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19pre10ext3 i686)

There seems to be a timeout. When I try to add a button to the panel
(kicker) and I'm not fast enough, the panel will restart even if I 
have not selected anything yet.
If I am fast enough and select an application, the panel restarts,
but the new button doesn't show up

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install kdebase-2.1.9
2. restart X
3. try to add a button:   Menu - Configure Panel - Add - Button  (wait) a
few seconds
3a. try to add a button:   Menu - Configure Panel - Add - Button - Internet
- Netscape

Actual Results:  panel restarts, no new button

Expected Results:  new button with selected application

This happened after I switched over to compiling kdebase with -O3 as 
recommended by the KDE team. I've reverted to using -O2, it's working now.

Assigning to gcc so the optimization problem can be fixed, changing priority 
to low because we usually don't use -O3.

I belive the panel crashing is due to non-functioning kbuildsycoca!
Comment 6 Jakub Jelinek 2001-03-22 10:44:13 EST
Can you please provide me with rpms (including .src.rpm) which reproduce this?
I've just tried to rebuild kdebase with -O3 and cannot reproduce this (the
rest of KDE rpms have been installed from binary rpms).
Ideally if you could at least track it down to a specific binary/library which
if compiles with flags foo does exhibit the problem and if compiled with flags
bar it does not.
Comment 7 Peter H.S. 2001-03-22 22:34:42 EST
The latest round of (KDE) updates (kdebase-2.1-10 etc) has solved the Kicker / 
panel problems for me (bug #31984 :Add > Applet..)

Comment 8 Karsten Hopp 2001-08-23 10:53:25 EDT
Verified that it works now
