Description Carlos Rodrigues 2001-07-11 09:47:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
When logging off from KDE sometimes I get a coredump which gdb says 
belongs to "kdeinit: kdesktop". It happens randomly and I haven't figured 
out the cause.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start kde
2. use it for some time
3. log off

Actual Results:  Sometimes I get a coredump from kdeinit: kdesktop at the 
time of logoff.

Expected Results:  It shouldn't dump core.

Can't reproduce this; please attach a backtrace.
Comment 2 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2001-07-16 12:52:12 EDT
Same here. I find coredumps once in a while.

I have a core file: see core-48750 in my home directory.

I'm having a similar problem with kdeinit, except it segfaults during normal
operations (usually slider moves or window moves), which locks up KDE entirely. 
(ctl-alt-backspace does not kill the window manager, so a reboot is required.)

I already tried rebuilding kdebase from the source RPM on my host, but the
problem persists.

The stack trace from the last crash:

Core was generated by `kdeinit: kdesktop'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

<sarcasm>I know, memory allocation problems with Qt.  Shocking!</sarcasm>
Comment 6 Carlos Rodrigues 2001-12-21 16:47:45 EST
Since "no core files" is now the default and kdeinit does not give a 
"Segmentation fault" message I was fooled into thinking it was fixed, but no, 
it happens in Red Hat 7.2, but now it happens after _every_ logout from KDE.
