Gdk-error when a large string is input into the Port/Port Range text box
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:22 EST
Description of problem:
Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'system-config-firewall.py' received an X Window Syst
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
(Details: serial 63698 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Within a shell, logged on as root, start system-config-firewall.
2. Press OK to close the start-up form.
3. From the list on the left hand side select the 'Other Ports' option.
4. Click the add button.
5. Click the check-box labeled 'Port / Port Range'.
6. Enter a text string longer that 4096 characters.
After a short delay the utility crashes - reporting the error above.
The utility should implement a maximum length on the field.
system-config-firewall-1.0.11-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
