[abrt] crash detected in gnome-screensaver-2.28.0-6.fc12 (BadDrawable)

abrt detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
reason: Process was terminated by signal 6
Created attachment 372991 [details]
were you doing anything specifically when this crash happened?
Nope. I've left the PC for the night.
IIRC there was gnome, evolution, OOo, ffox and gnome-terminal running.
Nothing more. Before you ask, there was enough ram and no OOM message in dmesg.
This was reported to me by a user in a Jabber MUC and I could reproduce it.
It is not reproducible reliably, but it happened more than once to me.
1. Configure the Gnome screensaver to Blank screen
2. In Gnome main menu: System -> Lock screen
3. When the screen blanks, move the mouse.
4. In the password dialog press Cancel.
Locking the session is ineffective if the screensaver can be crashed by cancelling the password entry dialog :-)
[Increasing Severity to High]
When the screensaver dies, .xsession-errors contains:
Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'gnome-screensaver' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)'.
(Details: serial 2158 error_code 9 request_code 53 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.)
gnome-session: WARNING: Detected that screensaver has left the bus
We should get an update out for this asap.
So I looked into this a bit (see gnome bug 598476) and it turns out this is a gtk issue. Alex did a patch, mclasen commited it.
