[abrt] control-center-1:2.28.1-20.el6: raise: Process /usr/bin/gnome-display-properties was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
Last modified: 2011-10-20 14:41:22 EDT
abrt version: 1.1.7
Attached file: backtrace
reason: Process /usr/bin/gnome-display-properties was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
release: Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 6.0 Beta (Santiago)
Actions taken before this happened:
- laptop in a dock, connected to external monitor via this dock
- System -> Shutdown -> Suspend
- button no. 1 on dock (first step to remove from dock) - caused wake up of laptop
- button no. 2 on dock (physical remove of laptop from dock)
- System -> Shutdown -> Suspend again
- wake up outside the dock, without monitor
- desktop still "two displays wide", programs displayd outside laptop screen (going to attach a screenshot)
- therefore trying to fix it via Display preferences...
How to reproduce
1. In Gnome: System -> Preferences -> Display
2. Click Detect Monitors
It happens everytime now - I repeated this crash five times now...
Don't know, whether will be able to reproduce eg. after logout, reboot...

Display Preferences dialog
Just before clicking Detect Monitors button, making it crash.
Note the size of the screenshot - desktop is still enlarged for already disconnected monitor.
This is probably a bug in the fix for bug 582564

So, this crash is from the fix in bug 582564. The patch basically does
to make the server update its internal timestamps. This is failing with a "BadMatch" error after suspend. I'm assuming this error is getting caused because the config is changing between the "getting" part and "setting" part as things are waking up.
I'm building a package now that ignores errors in the call which will hopefully be "good enough"
Verified on gnome-desktop-2.28.2-8.el6
I haven't faced to this issue while trying to reproduce it according to steps in C#1. Please feel free to reopen this issue if you'll meet this problem again.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
