Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 69892
Trying to save file in gedit crashes it
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:58:10 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gedit
2. Type some text
4. Enter a name in the appropriate box (default is "Untitled 1"
5. Click save...app will hang
The file does not save. gedit freezes and has to be killed.
The file should save properly

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

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
Try gedit 2.0.1 from rawhide, it should be fixed there.
Fix confirmed with gedit-2.0.1-1.
