Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 484766
crash during podcast download
Last modified: 2009-03-12 19:56:44 EDT
Description of problem:
I've discovered the following problem using banshee: During the download of a podcast banshee sometimes uses up to 100% CPU time and crashes after a couple of seconds. The reason is a recursive call of two functions (please see referenced gnome bug report).
The problem is not easy to trigger, because it is timezone-related (of the podcast as well as of the user). A detailed "how to reproduce" can be found in the gnome bug report.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
If the mentioned conditions are met then the problem is 100% reproducible (and very annoying). ;-)
The bug got already fixed in banshee's SVN (trunk). I've created a patch for F10 containing the same fix (besides the changelog entry) and a patch for banshee.spec.
It would be great if it could be applied to banshee in F10 as well!
Thank you very much in advance!

patch to correct the timezone handling
Thanks. I'm doing a test build now:
Could you confirm that the problem has disappeared, and also that it's still present in 1.4.2-1.fc10 that is in updates-testing?
(yum install banshee --enablerepo=updates-testing)
I'm currently on Rawhide, and some Mono GUI applications are currently not working there, so help testing is most welcome.

I've just tested it: Yes, the problem is still present with banshee-1.4.2 from updates-testing.
Then I've installed the new test build from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1117304 and the problem was fixed.

Sure, no problem!
Thanks for testing -- I'm building the new updates now. 1.4.2-1 has been in testing for long enough that it's probably better to land them in -stable first (they fix quite a few bugs), but I'm pushing this into testing once those land.
just doing some cleanup:
The problem was fixed when banshee-1.4.2-3.fc10.i386.rpm was pushed to stable. so I set the bug to CLOSED/NEXTRELEASE. Thanks again!
