Description Owen Taylor 2009-11-16 14:56:54 UTC
The GTK+ module libatk-bridge.so uses g_atexit() to add a function that does various cleanup on process shutdown.

This is just a really bad idea - say no to atexit() - deregistration needs to be automatic whether a process crashes or exits.

We're in particular getting crashes because metacity's and GDK's XIOError handler both call exit() which triggers the atexit() which calls XCloseDisplay() which calls the IOError handler - just bad stuff.

Comment 10 Bug Zapper 2010-11-04 06:20:24 UTC
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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: 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Comment 11 Owen Taylor 2010-11-04 14:24:11 UTC
On F-15 rawhide

 $ nm -D /usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules/at-spi-corba/modules/libatk-bridge.so | grep atexit
                 U g_atexit

Comment 12 Matthias Clasen 2012-03-07 11:35:22 UTC
This was fixed in at-spi2-atk a while ago:

commit 5b2ebbc50c9476e7afb3c2e1634bdd641b6cba8b
Author: Mike Gorse <mgorse@novell.com>
Date:   Fri Nov 5 09:04:27 2010 -0400

    Remove g_atexit handler.
    
    BGO#563546: at-spi should not use atexit.
    
    Dbus sends a NameOwnerChanged when an application goes away, so
    at-spi2-registryd should be able to do any necessary handling from that.

Comment 13 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 18:48:01 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
