Using GIMP to pixel-edit causes X server to abnormally exit
Last modified: 2009-07-05 17:40:54 EDT
Description of problem:
Using GIMP to pixel-edit an image causes the X server to catch a signal 11 and exit back to gdm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an image in GIMP
2. Magnify to 1600%, select the 1x1 pixel brush
3. Click somewhere in the image to set that pixel
Get kicked out of X session back to gdm login prompt
Able to use any X application without it crashing the X server.
Using xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-185.18.14-2.fc11 driver with a Geforce 7600GT card.
Actually, just using GIMP to edit an image at all causes the X server to crash; no magnification nor 1x1 pixel brush necessary; e.g. using the 'Fill' tool has the same effect.

Disabling the vnc Module in xorg.conf appears to have fixed it, as per bug 504300
