gvim hangs when GUI is used
Last modified: 2008-09-08 10:00:23 EDT
Description of problem:
gvim hangs when various GUI elements are used.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a document
2. Press "Paste" button in the toolbar
This is a fresh regression, occured after today's update. HOWEVER, the
/var/log/yum.log says that vim on this system was update on September 02.
So, likely some other component is at fault. But thus far no other
applications were affected.
No change today, still hangs. Oddly enough, gvim changed the theme:
now all the buttons look different. But the gvim itself was not updated.
Karsten, it's a really big issue for me. I cannot work. Going back
to a vi-inside-screen is kinda a big bummer.
There is something going on in GNOME, see the 'Strange Gnome Behavior After Rawhide 20080906' thread on fedora-test-list were various packages linked against gnome libs behave very strange. I don't think your problems are caused by something in gvim but in the gnome libs. Did you try to downgrade at least gtk2 and maybe glib2/pango to versions released before that date ?
It works now, I'm closing the bug.
Definitely not something in vim-X11, but then I have no idea how to
identify the broken component, and gvim was the only applications
doing this for me.
