Comment 2 Ian Springer 2010-01-20 16:29:44 UTC
I saw this under the same circumstances. I went to Options and enabled the view-only option. I then tried to connect and got the same crash.

Comment 3 Vladimir 2010-02-01 13:17:45 UTC
The same problem. I clicked "Options" and then "Ok" even without any changes in options. The viewer crashes.

Comment 4 jey 2010-02-01 15:50:35 UTC
Same problem. Options-> color settings-> OK then crash

Comment 5 Stefan Riemens 2010-02-16 20:24:06 UTC
Let me confirm this, just clicking options->OK triggers the crash. No need to modify options.

I looked only for the options and clicked ok-button.
That's all.
Thank you

Comment 13 Bas Auer 2010-03-13 15:16:30 UTC

Unable to reproduce it hapens or not. It happens unpredictable. Opening tiger VNC viewer opens several screens with out a problem. Next time I need it, it crashes.

Comment 14 Massa 2010-03-16 14:13:36 UTC

How to reproduce
1.Connect a remote PC via ssh tunneling vnc session over this connection
2.Start vncserver at remote PC
3.connect the vnc session using Tigervnc client
4.Start Ktorrent

Think it is related to the traffic generated by ktorrent window reflash and sudden speed down cause by BT transmission

Comment 22 Nicolas Berrehouc 2010-04-08 16:28:03 UTC
I confirm this problem. If you don't change options TigerVNC works fine. But if you try to check or uncheck one or more options you have a crash when you click OK.

/var/log/messages after each crash :
kernel: vncviewer[8655]: segfault at 158 ip 000000000040bea8 sp 00007fffa37db350 error 4 in vncviewer[400000+81000]

Crash with tigervnc.x86_64 0:1.0.0-3.fc12

If you downgrade to tigervnc.x86_64 0:1.0.0-1.fc12 you can change options without crash.

Comment 27 John Watzke 2010-04-15 19:56:36 UTC

How to reproduce
1. Start vncviewer
2. Go to "Options"
3. Under Misc: select "Shared (don't disconnect other viewers)"
4. Click OK *crash*

This is easy to replicate 100% of the time on my box.

Comment 28 Josh Krupka 2010-04-21 14:48:38 UTC

How to reproduce
1.Ran TigerVNC viewer
2.Tried to connect to an existing vnc session with "shared mode" (don't disconnect other users) enabled
3. It crashed when I tried connecting

I was able to connect to the same vnc session fine from Tiger with shared mode disabled

Comment 29 John Watzke 2010-04-21 15:35:07 UTC
I noticed updates to X that had comments that several functions were being exported out for use by tigervnc.  I tested out the options panel after the update to X and I no longer have crashes.  Perhaps this has gone away with the X fix?

Comment 30 Louis van Dyk 2010-04-23 08:47:25 UTC
I upgraded to tigervnc-1.0.1-1.fc12.x86_64 but am still having the samecrash problem when changing to Low Colour option once a connection has been established.  It was filed as bug 584877.
