Description of problem:
Gimp Crash XServer on click in the image window
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Select any tool from the ToolBox and click over an image (new or existent)
XServer get restarted and the Greeting Login Screen appears closing all running graphics applications.
Gimp packages installed:
Video: ATI Technologies Inc RS780M/RS780MN [Radeon HD 3200 Graphics]
The following errors were capture on crash:
gimp: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.0.
(script-fu:25716): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: script-fu: gimp_wire_read(): error
The X server crashing sounds like a driver or server problem to me (even though I have to different Radeon models that don't show this behaviour). I'll change the component to xorg-x11-drv-ati, you should probably tell the maintainer whether you use the radeon or radeonhd driver.
The driver used is radeonhd, I'm changing the component to that driver. There are other issues with the driver including that all graphics are very slow in general.
This sounds the same as this bug 505823 which occurred to an intel user (like me), so I think it's not just driver specific in this case. I'll upload my Xorg.0.log there.
In that case I'll close/dupe this bug.
