[abrt] crash in ruby-18.104.22.1683-6.fc12
Last modified: 2010-12-03 18:26:15 EST
abrt 1.0.4 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: ruby ../getPics.rb http://www.meetup.com/Singlesingilbert/
comment: Ran a program that checks pictures on a meetup.com web site. There are a lot of files > 25,000. It doesn't download them unless I don't have them already, and in this case it didn't download any new files, but is building a metadatafile that has information about each of the picture. I am a new Ruby programmer, so there might be something in the code that caused this, but it shouldn't do a hard crash in glib, should it? There was a memory leak problem that I thought I solved by "objectifying" the program, and it stopped swapping to death and now it just crashes.
reason: Process was terminated by signal 6 (Aborted)
release: Fedora release 12 (Constantine)
How to reproduce
1. I am not sure although with this program it is repeatable after a long series of web "scraping loops".
2. However, it doesn't always crash in the same place.

I tried ruby ./getPics.rb Singlesingilbert using this script
but crash does not occur. Would you try again using the this
Since 1.8.6p399 has some fix for gc related bug and -3 has
a fix for null class issue, using this ruby may fix the issue
If this issue seems still reproducible, I would appreciate it
if you would attach the new gdb backtrace.
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
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.
