Thanks for filing this bug report.

How reproducable is this problem?  If you run istanbul from a terminal, is there an error message when it exits?

Looking at the backtrace, it looks like an assertion failed in thread 1 inside the function "theora_enc_chain" (frame 5).

This looks like a problem with the theora GStreamer code; I'm going to reassign the component from "python" to "istanbul" as I'm not an expert in this area.

The istanbul maintainer will probably want to know the output of running:
  rpm -qa istanbul libtheora gstreamer\*
(and hopefully he or she will be able to reassign this to the most appropriate component)

Hope this is helpful

Well what happens is that every single time you try to save a screencast it just breifly shows the save dialog then closes the command line shows 

DEBUG: final pipeline: istximagesrc name=videosource display-name=:0.0 screen-num=0 show-pointer=false ! video/x-raw-rgb,framerate=10/1 ! videorate ! ffmpegcolorspace ! videoscale method=1 ! video/x-raw-yuv,width=1440,height=900,framerate=10/1 ! theoraenc ! oggmux name=mux ! filesink location=/tmp/tmpWuZJXX

  _("In process of saving to disk."))
istanbul: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.0.
The program 'istanbul' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadIDChoice (invalid resource ID chosen for this connection)'.
  (Details: serial 1149 error_code 14 request_code 1 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

from the command line when it closes

the command   rpm -qa istanbul libtheora gstreamer\* outputs

This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '12'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2010-12-03 22:19:33 EST
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
