Last modified: 2008-02-23 08:36:48 EST
Description of problem:
When try to mark some text konsole is crashing. The backtrace is attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Konsole from kdebase 4.0.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mark some text with double click or drag.
Konsole is crashing.
Marking the selected text and copying later somewhere.
This kde 4.0.1 is the first kde 4 release I'm testing, so I can't be sure what
version have the problem. The strange thing is that on another PC with the same
version of kde the problem does not appear.

kdeglobals with which konsole is crashing
Made some tests - created another user, konsole is not crashing. Then started to
move some directories from $HOME/.kde and managed to not crash the konsole when
moved away $HOME/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals.
I've attached the file.
Yes, it looks like this options causes the problem:
If removed konsole is not crashing.
No joy here, and I can toggle that option on/off in klipper, and still can't
To reproduce it please make sure the option is actually enabled when changing in
klipper, because I couldn't make it from there. Instead I had to edit the file
to make sure it is set to true. I'm not sure but it seems there is some cache of
the optioins if you have other konsoles started. Make sure all konsoles are
closed after changing the option to true and start konsole again. It will crash.
Fair nuf, if you've got a reproducible crasher, reporting this to the kde dev's
at bugs.kde.org would be the best way for it to get fixed.
OK, I've created bugreport there:
Thanks! We'll continue to track it there.
