Description Andrew Cagney 2008-02-27 21:48:32 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #435200 +++

Steps to reproduce:
1. Run frysk
2. Wait for a while
3. It crashes with the error:
   ***MEMORY-ERROR***: Frysk[24796]: GSlice: assertion failed:
sinfo->n_allocated > 0

Stack trace:

Other information:
--Please note that this is a bug against the java-gnome 2.16.x bindings not 4.0

Turns out this is caused by freeing of TreeIter objects using g_slice_free when
they were allocated using g_malloc.

I'll be on the lookout for other instances of this...
Patch is following soon

Comment 1 Andrew Cagney 2008-02-27 21:52:49 UTC
This patch fixes incorrect freeing of GTK objects (the wrong method was being used).

Risk of not applying upstream patch.

-> High; frysk, and any other gtk java app that uses trees will crash or corrupt
memory shortly after being started

Risk of applying this patch:

-> Very low; the current code is corrupting memory which this fixes.

Comment 2 Stepan Kasal 2008-07-21 12:04:25 UTC
The patch is small and strightforward, see
