Description Jerry James 2007-10-29 03:50:05 UTC
Description of problem:
I ran manedit with no command line args so I could start building a new man
page.  I pressed the "New" button, which triggered an immediate segfault.  The
backtrace is as follows, with frames 1-54166 being the same as 54167-54170
repeated over and over.  Presumably the segfault is due to running off the end
of the stack.

Contacted with upstream....

Comment 2 Chris Tyler 2007-11-29 04:34:49 UTC
ManEdit produces this message to stderr just before the segfault:

Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to load module "libgnomebreakpad.so":
libgnomebreakpad.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Comment 3 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-12-17 06:06:10 UTC
Would you try 0.8.1-2.fc{7,8,9} ?

They can be downloaded from

Comment 4 Jerry James 2007-12-20 04:14:16 UTC
Yes, that works great.  I'm also getting the warning message identified in
comment #2.  Is that anything to worry about?  The .so is in

Comment 5 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-12-20 04:27:58 UTC
Well, as currently it seems that manedit is working for now I ignore
the warning. BTW manedit uses GTK+ (version 1.x) so this should have
no relation with /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules (version 2.x).
