Description Jean-Christophe G. 2011-06-06 17:39:40 UTC
Description of problem:
Fluxbox crashes on exit. But Xorg keeps running.
So, ctrl+alt+backspace must be pressed to leave Xorg.

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

How reproducible:
Click on "Exit" in the fluxbox menu

Additional info:
There is the following message on the text console after the fluxbox crash :
*** glibc detected *** fluxbox: corrupted double-linked list: 0x0000000001573f70 ***
Fluxbox remains in memory after the crash and must be killed (through a text console) that way:
killall -9 fluxbox

I am seeing the same thing on the x86 platform.  It closed right once or twice, then start crashing with the same "corrupted double-linked list" error in .xsession-errors.
