Description Andrew Hecox 2009-08-26 00:26:55 UTC
gnome-terminal is frequently, but irregularly, segfaulting in F12 alpha 1. I've been having a bit of trouble with gdb in this release, but I got an OK bt; fulfilling the remaining dependencies prevents any information from being collected.

Core was generated by `gnome-terminal'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

I have a core file, if needed.

Comment 1 Behdad Esfahbod 2009-08-26 00:47:54 UTC
I've built vte 0.21.4 already that should fix it:

Please file a new bug if still happens.
