MALLOC_CHECK_=3 breaks multiple workspaces
Last modified: 2009-11-18 02:04:53 EST
Description of problem:
Wanted to get better problems reproducibility for metacity but found out the memory mangling glibc option MALLOC_CHECK_=3 reproducively disables the option to have multiple workspaces.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (tried two boots).
Steps to Reproduce:
cat >/usr/local/bin/metacity <<EOH
ulimit -c unlimited
exec /usr/bin/metacity "$@"
Try to set multiple workspaces by wnck-applet.
wnck-applet applet still shows a single (or single column) workspace no matter how many `Number of Workspaces' you set.
Normal functionality as without MALLOC_CHECK_=3.
There will be some uninitialized memory assmed to be zero or so.
Can't reproduce on i386, might be x86_64 specific
Not reproducible with metacity-2.24.0-2.fc10.x86_64.
