Empathy freezes/crashes when trying to set profile picture.
Last modified: 2009-07-03 15:43:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Whenever I try to set a profile picture in empathy the program seems to freeze.
I have tried many different file formats (png,jpg,etc) and nothing seems to fix it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit->Personal Information
2. Click profile picture icon
3. Select file
4. Click open
Program freezes or crashes
A new profile picture
I attached some backtraces I was able to get.
Created attachment 304709 [details]
This is from empathy freezing
Created attachment 304710 [details]
Attached a backtrace when empathy completley crashed
I'm updating my Rawhide VM now to test this; but does enabling/disabling a
specific account or connection manager fix this? (E.g., if you disable all your
Haze-using accounts, or all your Gabble-using accounts, etc.?)
Ok, I can definitely reproduce this issue and it seems at first glance to be
specific to Haze, as creating avatars for Jabber and Google Talk (both using
Gabble) works as expected, and the Salut account also sets it correctly.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

As of telepathy-haze 0.2.1 (submitted for F9-testing yesterday), this should not be an issue any longer. Andrew, when this hits the testing repository please let me know if it fixes this bug for you. Thanks.
I got the update of Koji and I am no longer experiencing this problem. Thank you.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
