Description of problem:
On my ThinkPad A20p, loading the clock applet in the panel will cause the panel
to crash

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a ThinkPad A20p
2. Login to X
3. Add the clock applet to the panel

Actual Results:  The panel crashes. The session manager then restarts the panel
forever. (See gnome-session bug)

Expected Results:  A clock applet runs in the panel

This just has to be thinkpad-specific somehow, as there are no other reports.

I'm not sure how to go about debugging it...
Comment 2 petrosyan 2002-08-20 15:48:05 EDT
works fine on ThinkPad T20
Comment 3 Daryll 2002-08-20 15:57:11 EDT
Is it possible to run the clock outside the panel so I could get useful
debugging information from it?
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-20 16:17:01 EDT
No, the clock is a dlopen() module loaded by the panel.
It is in the gnome-panel RPM though - 
If you rebuild the rpm with 
something like "rpm --define "optflags -g" -ba gnome-panel.spec" you would 
get a panel RPM with debug symbols.

I did a full install on the laptop instead of an upgrade and this problem went
away. I was having a bunch of odd gtk problems, so maybe there was a bad library
somewhere even though I had removed /usr/local/lib.
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2002-10-16 16:04:57 EDT
Ok, I'm going to close this as 'worksforme' since we have been unable to
duplicate this and since it's no longer happening for you.  It sounds like your
machine was in a weird state to begin with, so the chances of reproducing it are
pretty slim.

If you see the behavior again, please reopen this bug report.
