Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-06-14 09:39:24 UTC
Description of problem:
libflashplayer.so in Mozilla Seamonkey crashes by opening sample
SWF file, when mozilla debugged via gdb

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
seamonkey-1.0.9-0.55.el3.i386

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mozilla
2. ps ax | grep mozilla-bin => return "ppid"
3. gdb
   (gdb) attach ppid
   (gdb) continue
4. Load in mozilla one of the following SWF files:
   a, http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-flash-13236504-soccer-elephant.php or
   b, http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-flash-13238378-ten-circles-preloader.php

Actual results (libflashplayer.so crash)
...
Detaching after fork from child process 19162.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

0x06852e69 in ?? ()
(gdb)


Expected results:
No crash.

Additional info:
$ rpm -q seamonkey{,-debuginfo}
seamonkey-1.0.9-0.55.el3.i386
seamonkey-debuginfo-1.0.9-0.52.el3.i386

$ rpm -q flash-plugin
flash-plugin-9.0.277.0-1.el3.with.oss.i386

Martin, the reason for this might be seamonkey is searching for "debuginfo"
information for flash-plugin, and since there is no "flash-plugin" debuginfo
package, call of relevant routine leads to crash. Could you have a look
what's wrong here?

Note: There is no crash, when mozilla called without gdb, i.e via:
  mozilla http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-flash-13236504-soccer-elephant.php

or 

  mozilla http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-flash-13238378-ten-circles-preloader.php

Relevant pages are displayed properly in that case.
