Description Matt Domsch 2007-10-27 16:50:10 EDT
Description of problem:

xchat-2.8.4-6.fc8 x86_64 on up-to-date rawhide (2 weeks before F8 launch).
xchat starts, but gets stuck infinitely redrawing the server tabs on the right
as it tries to automatically connect to them.  It can't actually connect to the
servers because it's spending all its time redrawing their tab.  gdb backtrace
attached shows it's stuck in a signal loop.  It's fine if I don't autoconnect to
servers on startup (e.g. xchat -a).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xchat-2.8.4-6.fc8 x86_64

How reproducible:
always for me

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run xchat -a
Actual results:
livelocked repeatedly drawing the server tabs

Expected results:
login and run normally

That sounds very bad.

If you change the tabs to another position (e.g. at the bottom, or showing as a 
tree), does it still happen?

The backtrace makes this look a lot like a GTK+ bug, the only XChat functions 
in it are main and fe_main.
Comment 4 Matt Domsch 2007-10-28 15:39:17 EDT
fwiw, starting xchat with the server/channel list in tree mode seems fine.

I've not experienced this problem again after F8 release.  Closing as
