Description Kjartan Maraas 2001-08-12 06:38:12 EDT
Description of Problem:

The mini commander applet has problems with empty commands

How Reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add mini_commander_applet
2. place cursor in the window
3. press and hold enter

Actual Results:

The applet hangs, making it impossible to remove it from the panel
killall mini_commander_applet is needed.

Expected Results:

No hang.

Additional Information:

This has been fixed in a newer release of gnome-applets. This release also
fixes a buffer overrun in the applet since it uses a static buffer of 500
chars and doesn't check if the user types in more than that

This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-04-09 15:42:33 EDT
Doesn't die on enter for me anymore, but does die if I put in a really long
command name.
Comment 3 Kjartan Maraas 2002-06-16 20:23:26 EDT
Even after switching to the latest gnome-applets? I'd say close this.
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-06-16 21:24:05 EDT
Okie, no doubt fixed in gnome 2 anyhow.
