Description Trond Danielsen 2009-02-08 03:50:17 EST
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. [trondd@niobium ~]$ python /usr/share/doc/pigment-python-0.3.10/examples/sphere.py 

Actual results:
The program 'sphere.py' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib length erro'.
  (Details: serial 15 error_code 16 request_code 143 minor_code 17)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Expected results:

Additional info:
The problem is the same as described in #479098 which was solved in 0.3.13-3.

Note: I tested this on F10, but the packages were from rawhide.
Comment 1 Matthias Saou 2009-02-09 06:04:47 EST
There is a workaround in the package to fix this, and I tried removing it again, but tested on i386 only, so I thought things were working... but no. You want to be using 0.3.14-2.

Note also that my rebuilds of pigment-python for F-10 and F-9 are failing because the pigment rebuilds aren't available to them. I really don't know why this is happening now...
