Comment 1 Dams 2002-07-05 11:23:18 EDT
An additionnal info, It happens when i have an url in the epic prompt..
Dont know why exactly..
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-05 11:31:20 EDT
cc'ing nalin
Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2002-07-15 14:31:39 EDT
Did you have non-ASCII characters in the terminal at the time (for example,
characters with accents, umlauts, circumflexes, etc. over them)?  If so, then
this will be fixed in 0.4.9, and I'll close this bug when I get packages built.
Comment 4 Dams 2002-07-16 02:37:48 EDT
No. If I just put "http://asfgrgr" and move the mouse over the url then
gnome-terminal crashes.
Comment 5 Nalin Dahyabhai 2002-07-16 16:07:50 EDT
That's strange.  At least the case I mention above is fixed in 0.4.9, and this
has a good chance of fixing the problem you're running into.  Please check if
0.4.9 (coming soon to Raw Hide) fixes this for you.
Comment 6 Dams 2002-07-18 05:35:58 EDT
I have upgrade limbo with all packages i could found via up2date this morning.
gnome-terminal dont crash anymore. For me, this bug is fixed. :)
Thank you ! :)
Comment 7 Dams 2002-07-18 10:14:47 EDT
Just guess. :)
I have tested a little more and gnome-terminal just crashed down again.
This time "http://a.b.com" is okay but "http://a.b.com/" (with and ending slash)
make it crash.
Comment 8 Nalin Dahyabhai 2002-07-18 21:38:21 EDT
Okay, I think this is a corner case I missed.  It should be fixed in 0.5.0,
coming soon to Raw Hide (a new gnome-terminal build comes with it).  Please
reopen if you can cause it to crash again after updating.
Comment 9 Jay Turner 2002-07-30 08:24:49 EDT
Fix confirmed with vte-0.5.4-2 and gnome-terminal-
