Saving session causes gnome-terminal to segfault
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:58:10 EST
Description of Problem:
I'm seeing this on my laptop, but will verify on another machine tomorrow, but
here's what I'm seeing. If I have a mutt terminal running and log out of X,
saving the session, gnome-terminal will segfault.
If instead of logging out of X, I run 'gnome-session-save' from a terminal, then
I will get the dialog stating that the session was saved, and after clicking
'OK' all of my gnome-terminals hang. I can still move back and forth through
desktops and all other applications work, just can't do anything with the
terminals that I already have, or launch new ones.
I'll attach a strace here shortly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
OK, I have the strace saved, but it's 71k, so I'm not attaching it. However,
looking at it, the trace appears to complete successfully, so not sure that I
was chasing the right thing. Let me know and I'll throw the trace your way.
Probably need a gdb backtrace instead of an strace (run in gdb, when it hangs
hit control-C and backtrace from there).
Probably going to have to let you play with it. The terminals lock hard, so
<ctrl>-C doesn't break out of gdb.
I'm guessing this was one of the vte bugs that's now gone.
More than likely, as I'm no longer seeing it.
