Description James Pearson 2009-09-08 14:20:39 UTC
Description of problem:

The "trapezoid_of_death" example code submitted in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=448586 for RHEL5 also crashes X in RHEL4

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile trapezoid_of_death.c from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=448586#c12
2. Run
Actual results:

X server crashes

Expected results:

X server doesn't crash

Additional info:

Visting the URLs listed in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=448586 with firefox 3 on RHEL4 doesn't crash X - but running the "trapezoid_of_death" example code does.

The xserver-1.1.1-saturate-trap-walks.patch used to fix this problem with RHEL5, also fixes this crash with RHEL4
