Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2010-06-14 21:04:57 UTC
Offending line:
		ent->mark_start = -1;
Corresponding assembly:
=> 0x000000000043ee18 <+56>:	movw   $0xffff,0x24(%rax)
where %rax (ent) is:
rax            0x756f726120657573	8462107986333365619
Looks like an invalid textentry * found its way into the linked list at buf->last_ent_start.

Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce this, there must be more preconditions than what you quoted.

Can you please report this upstream?

Comment 3 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2010-06-16 11:34:43 UTC
this was a one off crash (I regularly copy&paste from xchat).
If there was nothing useful in the backtrace, then just CLOSED WORKSFORME

Comment 4 Todd Thomas 2010-08-25 00:34:12 UTC
Package: xchat-1:2.8.8-2.fc13
Architecture: x86_64
OS Release: Fedora release 13 (Goddard)

How to reproduce

1. Leave xchat up for a week or so
2. higlight some text in the main window
3. right-click to copy the highlighted text > crash

I'm not sure how reproducible this is. I had xchat on for over a week. I wen't to highlight some text in the main window and it just crashed on me. I hope the back trace can give some insight into this problem. Otherwise I can't help.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2011-06-02 10:53:54 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.

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 13'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 13 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: 

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2011-06-27 18:12:51 UTC
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 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.
