Description James Buckle 2008-03-04 08:25:08 EST
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):

How reproducible:
Every Time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Minimise Kopete to "tray" (resident but not as a taskbar button)
2.Await message 
3.Click View. 
Actual results:
Say goodbye to everything you were doing, closes all active windows and resets
back to login screen.

Expected results:
Viewing my message.

Additional info:
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?

Using Nvidia drivers on an XFX FX5700. Also using compiz (desktop enhancements).
Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2008-03-04 10:21:16 EST
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.
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2008-03-10 09:00:35 EDT
Closing->CANTFIX (likely an NVidia driver issue).

If you can reproduce with fedora X driver, please reopen.
