Description lethalwp 2010-07-17 11:01:30 UTC
Description of problem:
it's not the only way to make xorg crash, but it's the only one i remember,
when using gimp in rawhide, copy part of a image, paste as new, close the new window,  xorg crashes

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
happened on earlier rawhides too,  was fine in fc13

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open an image in gimp
2. select a square in the image, go to edit->copy
3. edit-> paste as new
4. close the new window, choose "discard"

Actual results:

Expected results:
window closing, no crash

Additional info:

another easier way to crash X:

open xchat,  connect to:
/server irc.freenode.net

close xchat by clicking on the X, after the "you're connected" warning say: "yes, close"

x will crash

Comment 8 lethalwp 2010-07-21 10:45:39 UTC
after doing more research,
i begin to think it's icewm (or depending libraries) related,

when i try with the default window manager, i cannot reproduce the problem

There are not many information in the logs :/

I've tried to rebuild the src.rpm from fedora, just to be sure the library linkings were ok, it didn't help.

I've then tried to attach gdb on the running icewm,  it seems it didn't segfault, just got a message: "program exited with code 01"

i'll try with a newer icewm (maybe cvs?), and if the behaviour improves, i'll keep you informed.

Comment 9 lethalwp 2010-07-21 11:01:47 UTC
tried with 1.2.38pre2 and 1.3.7pre2
same behaviour

I am sorry, but I really think, that switching to icewm component would be more profitable here. I don't see absolutely anything which would indicate Xorg fault.

Icewm maintainer, if you think this is xorg please switch back with additional information, why you think so.

Thank you for reporting the issue and making Fedora better.

Comment 11 Gilboa Davara 2010-07-23 07:16:45 UTC
I'll install rawhide on VM and see if I can reproduce it.

Just to be certain, you are seeing it with icewm-1.2.37-7?

Comment 12 lethalwp 2010-07-23 09:19:16 UTC
yes, and also with newer official versions from icewm.sf.net,
didn't try cvs

Comment 13 Bug Zapper 2010-07-30 12:38:16 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 14 lethalwp 2010-08-04 22:31:46 UTC
did you have any luck reproducing the error?

Sometimes i think it's related to the "focus following cursor" mode:
when i have a certain popup window (with java software independant of fedora), click right on the OK button it works,   but if i miss the ok, clicked just next to it, then click ok;  i get the crash also.

Comment 15 Gilboa Davara 2010-08-05 08:03:24 UTC
My Rawhide VM died.
I'm trying to free some time to reinstall it.

Comment 16 lethalwp 2010-08-11 16:45:24 UTC
it looks like the update of libX11 of today fixed this issue

Closing this report, it's good for me
