Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55507
libfam and Konqueror repeatedly coring out
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:01 EDT
Description of Problem:
fam seems to be causing repeated coring with only:
and xmms running; plenty of df and swap, low load
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
vanilla RH 7.2 new install with all updates
Created attachment 36001 [details]
core traceback -- looks like libfam error
Huh? In what way does this seem like a libfam bug?
libfam does have weak symbols for __builtin_delete and __builtin_vec_delete, so
it's perfectly ok for them to show up in the backtrace. But it is not the fault
of libfam any more than libc (__libc_free is also in the backtrace).
This looks like a double free in KHTTML. Reassigning to kde-libs.
Try running with export _MALLOC_CHECK=2 to find the bug easier.
bug is no longer occurring and so I am closing
