I ran a totem instance from a terminal. When I closed it, I got the following message in the terminal I had started it from:
E: thread-posix.c: Assertion 'pthread_setspecific(t->key, userdata) == 0' failed at pulsecore/thread-posix.c:194, function pa_tls_set(). Aborting.
Multiple segmentation faults occurred; can't display error dialog
Hmm, this is interesting. Could you get me a gdb bt please?
*** Bug 462218 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I'm having trouble reproducing this. Any hints based on where in the code that assertion might be?
The assertion is in PA's pulsecore/thread-posix.c:194
However, this function should not fail unless the key is invalid. Which is a sign of some kind of memory corruption. Not good.
Fixed in pulseaudio-0.9.13-6.
