Description Kjartan Maraas 2001-08-12 17:11:55 UTC
Description of Problem:

Changing themes take down most of my apps, including nautilus, panel etc

How Reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open themes capplet
2. change themes like this:
3. it crashes

Actual Results:

Major crash of all apps.

Expected Results:

New theme shown?

Additional Information:

I think this happens with more of the themes so it could be worthwhile to
investigate more combinations leading to crashes like this.

Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2001-08-12 19:10:44 UTC
OK, I can get it just switching from BeCool to Brushed-metal-clean, 
so it's pretty compact for a test case.

Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2001-08-12 21:00:27 UTC
Thought I had it tracked down to a gtk_style_copy() bug, but it turns
out it only happens in programs that call gnome_init(), so I think
it has something to do with imlib. (gnome-libs makes gtk_rc_load_image()
use imlib)

Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2001-08-12 23:31:53 UTC
OK, in addition to the gtk_style_copy() bug which might cause a few
apps to crash, found the main problem in a imlib/gnome-libs bug.

With those two patched, I can switch themes between the set we
install continuously without any crashes.

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.

Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2001-08-14 20:02:18 UTC
Fixed in gnome-libs-1.2.13 and gtk+-1.2.10-10
