[abrt] crash in kdebase-workspace-4.4.0-8.fc12: Process /usr/bin/plasma-desktop was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
Last modified: 2010-12-03 17:00:17 EST
abrt 1.0.7 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: plasma-desktop --nocrashhandler
comment: I will do another report if I can duplicate that behavior after a few disconnected devices accumulate in the list again.
reason: Process /usr/bin/plasma-desktop was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
release: Fedora release 12 (Constantine)
How to reproduce
1. Right click on the device manager icon in the same panel that has Fedora's equivalent of the Window's "start" button
2. Select device notifier settings
3. Select "Removable Devices" in the left panel.
4. Expand the "Disconneced Devices" tree branch in the "Device Overrides" panel.
5. Select more than one entry by highlighting them.
6. Click on the "Forget Device" button.
The application evaporates and the crash handler comes up.

This issue has been reported to the Kde.org team at
As of today (April 9, 2010) I have been able to reproduce the issue after applying all relevant updates (that I am aware of) available for the Linux Fedora 12 distribution.
Happy Linux user since 1995.
Thanks, looks like this one got fixed upstream, but only in trunk/ afaict,
grr... need to backport this to 4.4 branch.
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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.
