Description Gabriel Somlo 2008-05-12 16:10:18 EDT
Description of problem:
upon attempt to add a custom report by clicking the 'add report' button on the
main toolbar, gnucash crashes unceremoniously.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Create a custom report, then attempt to save it using the 'Add Report' button
on the main toolbar.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start gnucash
2. create new set of accounts (I created 'common accounts')
3. create custom report:
    - start by selecting Reports -> Income&Expense -> Cash Flow
    - customize:
        - right click, select 'Report Options'
        - under 'General', change report name to e.g. 'available checking'
        - under 'Accounts', pick 'always show subaccounts' and select e.g.
          'Assets:Checking' and 'Liabilities:Credit Card'
        - click 'OK'
4. attempt to save custom report by clicking 'Add Report' on the main toolbar
Actual results:
gnucash crashes.

Expected results:
new report should become available under 'Reports -> Sample and Custom'

Additional info:

This is the crash dump / back trace gnucash prints out when it dies:

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2008-05-12 17:05:56 EDT
Can you try the 2.2.5 packages currently in updates-testing?

Comment 2 Gabriel Somlo 2008-05-12 19:30:35 EDT
Same problem occurs with 2.2.5-1.fc8 :(
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2008-07-17 16:09:56 EDT
I can't reproduce this with the same GnuCash on F9. Will try F8, hopefully soon.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2008-07-18 12:02:48 EDT
OK, with the same versions of Gnucash and guile on F9, this works fine. However,
it fails on Fedora 8.

Fedora 8 ships with slib-3a4-2, while Fedora 9 has slib-3b-1. If you install the
slib from Fedora 9, it works. (You may try that as a workaround.)

Moving bug to slib.
Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2008-07-23 07:10:56 EDT
slib-3b1-1.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2008-08-07 19:54:57 EDT
slib-3b1-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
