Description of problem:
After running "xaos" from a shell windows and zooming into the fractal
structure by holding the left mouse button down, "xaos" core dumps
inadvertently and leaves the unprepared user with the following content of
its shell window:
<1 localhost.localdomain-user /home/user> xaos
xaos: zoomd.c:362: fill2_32: Assertion `n > 0' failed.
Abort (core dumped)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start "xaos" from the shell.
2. Zoom in by holding the left mouse button down.
Actual Results: "xaos" crashes after less than 3 sec. returning the above
Expected Results: Zoom smoothly into the fractal structure.
Red Hat Linux 7.1 with all available updates and XFS 1.0 on a Pentium Pro
200MHz/512kB, 256MB of main memory and an 8MB Matrox Millennium II PCI
card. The problem occurs for both of the XFree86* and the XF86_SVGA* X
I am pretty sure that this problem arose with the release of Red Hat Linux
7.0, whereas it was absent for Red Hat Linux 6.2. Since the current
version of "xaos" hasn't changed for quite a while this problem -may- be
related within some internal problem of Red Hat Linux 7.x.
I couldn't reproduce this, but built a new release of XaoS anyway.
It should be available in the rawhide directorys soon.
Please reopen the bugreport if the new XaoS package still doesn't work.
