Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 435914
Kopete kills X server (nvidia driver)
Last modified: 2008-03-10 12:04:16 EDT
Description of problem:
When minimised as a "tray item", kopete displays small yellow messages when new
messages arrive. When I click "View" it resets my X server, just as
ctrl-alt-backspace does. This is repeatable, every time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Minimise Kopete to "tray" (resident but not as a taskbar button)
Say goodbye to everything you were doing, closes all active windows and resets
back to login screen.
Viewing my message.
Nothing logged in /var/log/messages or dmesg
Nothing that I can identify as unusual in xorg log either.
Smells a lot more like a general X issue to me. No app should be able to kill
the session like that.
What X hardware/driver are you using?

Log of recent sessions, last restart was after a crash.
Using Nvidia drivers on an XFX FX5700. Also using compiz (desktop enhancements).
Can anyone reproduce this with any other driver? If this is an nvidia driver
bug, I'm afraid there's nothing we can do about that.
Closing->CANTFIX (likely an NVidia driver issue).
If you can reproduce with fedora X driver, please reopen.
