Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 585078
gnome-shell Completely Locks Up
Last modified: 2011-03-26 11:59:40 EDT
Description of problem:
Expanding the list of recent items causes X to freeze.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time (tried it three times).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. gnome-shell --replace
2. Activities Overlay
3. Click on arrow next to "Recent Items" to expand the list.
List will expand after a short delay. However, you cannot close it again. Mouse will move but nothing else is responsive. Cannot escape Activies Overlay mode at all. I tried to just stop the gnome-shell with kill -9 but this did not work so I had to kill X itself.
Recent items list should expand and collapse without locking up the system.
Hard to say at this point - seems like a graphics driver bug. Recent Items is gone in Fedora 15 GNOME Shell.
