Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 71716
konqueror crashed when accessing a directory where a "dead.letter" file is located.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:36 EDT
Description of Problem:
It looks like I can reproduce the bug only with the particular
"dead.letter" file I have. I have tried to reproduce the problem
with an empty "dead.letter" file, but then it worked just fine.
If I move the bad "dead.letter" file in another directory, then
konqueror crashes only if I try to access that directory.
When it crashes, I do not receive an error signal. The scroll
bar (on the right-hand side) starts flashing very fast and
konqueror does not respond to my mouse commands anymore.
I have to kill the konqueror window with "xkill".
I will attach my "dead.letter" file. Hopefully, it is reproducable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qif /usr/bin/konqueror
Name : kdebase Relocations: /usr
Version : 2.2.2 Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put the "dead.letter" file in your home directory.
2. Load your home directory with konqueror by clicking on the
home icon or by typing the command "konqueror ~".
3. Try to see if the konqueror windows responds to your mouse
commands. (This should fail.)
The scroll bar flashes very quickly and continuously. I cannot use
this konqueror window for file management. I must kill it with
Konqueror should allow me to submit mouse commands.

This is the "dead.letter" file that causes konqueror to crash.
