[abrt] crash in liferea-1:1.6.2-2.fc12: raise: Process /usr/bin/liferea was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
Last modified: 2010-10-13 12:42:21 EDT
abrt 1.0.9 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
reason: Process /usr/bin/liferea was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
release: Fedora release 12 (Constantine)
How to reproduce
I have no idea. I was just trying to browse through my feeds and it just hung.
I then looked at the process list and strangely saw two copies of liferea running.
I did a kill -9 of one of them and noticed that abrt noticed the crash in liferea.
Afterwards, both copies were gone.

This reliably crashes any time I look at a feed that has something embedded in the payload (generally a flash applet).
Since with some feeds, it's completely unpredictable whether there will be flash applets in it or not on a given article, this is extremely frustrating.
I'm clearly not the only one running into this bug, as the duplicates will attest.
I've also tried uninstalling flash-plugin and upgrading to the latest available 64-bit version (10.0.45.2). Neither prevent liferea from crashing.
A better test case, now that I know what's going on:
1) Add http://www.smbc-comics.com/rss.php
2) Go to May 24 (there are others that do this, but let's keep it simple)
3) See a crash
Liferea 1.6.4 has been pushed to stable. Please upgrade to this latest version and see if it corrects this issue. If there is no update to this bug within 30 days will close as WORKSFORME.
The version of Liferea in F13 does not have this problem. As I'm no longer running F12, I am unable to test this update.
Liferea 1.6.5 has been submitted for testing on F12/F13/F14. Closing this bug for now. Please install the new update and if the problem returns feel free to reopen this report with additional information
