Description Casey Dahlin 2008-08-29 11:14:43 EDT
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?

Comment 3 Casey Dahlin 2008-10-19 14:12:33 EDT
I'm having trouble reproducing this. Any hints based on where in the code that assertion might be?
Comment 4 Lennart Poettering 2008-10-21 14:49:28 EDT
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.
