Output from gnome-power-manager --verbose --no-daemon

Description of problem:
Pretty much without fail, gnome-power-manager segfaults on me within a short time of starting up.

Attached is the output from starting up g-p-m with --verbose and --no-daemon. Inline right here is the gdb backtrace:

(gdb) run --no-daemon
Starting program: /usr/bin/gnome-power-manager --no-daemon

Start gnome-power-manager on my t61, watch it go boom.
Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2008-08-21 10:41:01 EDT
Already fixed in cvs, i just can't build packages :-(.
Comment 2 Jarod Wilson 2008-08-21 10:43:35 EDT
Oops, didn't actually put the bt in. Sounds like there's no need, since its already fixed, but just the same here it is for posterity... I'll build out of cvs and verify that it fixes things here though.

Comment 3 Jarod Wilson 2008-08-21 10:45:11 EDT
Or perhaps I won't build out of cvs, since it seems that cvs is offline again... :\

Don't suppose you could attach the patch here? :)

Muchas gracias, building now...
Comment 6 Jarod Wilson 2008-08-21 15:32:17 EDT
Build w/that patch has lasted quite a bit longer than it has in quite a while, looks golden.
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2008-08-23 19:46:59 EDT
Patch is in rawhide
