Description Allen A George 2002-07-25 20:29:41 EDT
Description of Problem:
I am unable to save a file in gedit since it crashes on me.  This happens no
matter which file name I choose or what text I enter.  I did not file this under
gedit however, because I suspect the problem is in the file selector itself. 
gedit runs fine until I try to save a file...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gedit
2. Type some text
3. File--->Save
4. Enter a name in the appropriate box (default is "Untitled 1"
5. Click save...app will hang

Actual Results:
The file does not save.  gedit freezes and has to be killed.

Expected Results:
The file should save properly

Additional Information:

System Specs:
P4 1.4 Ghz on Asus P4T mobo w/ 256 MB RDRAM
Asus V7100 nVidia GeForce 2
Maxtor 40GB 7200 RPM IDE HDD

This is a stock RedHat install.  The only thing I've done in install aMSN and
some truetype fonts.

PS.  Sorry I didn't mention this earlier.

I am also running GARNOME 0.12.2 on a Debian Sid box.  I have never witnessed
this problem there... Both gedit and the file selector are perfectly fine

Comment 3 Allen A George 2002-07-25 20:41:28 EDT
Found another app with a save dialog: Mr. Project

This works perfectly there, so I conclude it is a gedit specific problem
My apologies for filing this wrong.  It won't happen again
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-25 21:18:38 EDT
Try gedit 2.0.1 from rawhide, it should be fixed there.
Comment 5 Jay Turner 2002-07-29 09:14:48 EDT
Fix confirmed with gedit-2.0.1-1.
