Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447196
Selecting and dragging text crashes windows manager
Last modified: 2009-07-14 14:09:12 EDT
Description of problem:
When "Enable Desktop Effects" has been turned on, my session will crash back to
the login screen when I highligh text in Firefox and attempt to drag it. This
does not happen with "Enable Desktop Effects" disabled.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable Desktop Effects in System->Preferences->Look and Feel->Desktop Effects
2. Open Firefox, go to a webpage and select text.
3. Attempt to drag the highlighted text to another part of the screen.
Crash to login screen.
I'm using an Intel 965GM video card in a Thinkpad x61 laptop. I've only
attempted to reproduce the problem in Gnome.
This does not appear to be the same issue as Bug 441589, as all desktop effects
seem to work except for text dragging. I wasn't able to get any useful
information out of /var/log/messages or /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.

Xorg log from crash with autogenerated xorg.conf
This may or may not deserve an extra ticket. When running without an xorg.conf,
I couldn't use ctrl-alt-F1 to switch away from the login screen. It froze the
system and I had to reboot.
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
