Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2011-09-19 14:59:08 UTC
Can you try other locale? Like US/CZ.

Comment 3 Jiri Koten 2011-09-22 16:49:34 UTC
I don't see any similar crash in Thunderbird 7 - thunderbird-7.0-0.6b3.el5_7.

Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-01-09 14:37:50 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.8 and Red Hat does not plan to fix this issue the currently developed update.

Contact your manager or support representative in case you need to escalate this bug.

Comment 5 Jiri Koten 2012-02-20 18:30:20 UTC
The crash upon exit is back in thunderbird-10.0.1-3.el5_8.

Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2012-02-21 07:54:06 UTC
Please install debuginfo and try again. And test an upstream binary too.

Comment 7 Jiri Koten 2012-02-21 09:08:57 UTC
Tb run with $ LANG=zh_TW.utf8 thunderbird -g -d gdb, gdb output + t a a bt

Comment 8 Jiri Koten 2012-02-21 09:13:18 UTC
Also it seems to me that there is something wrong with the debuginfo package, I got 

"Reading symbols from /usr/lib64/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin...Reading symbols from /usr/lib/debug/usr/lib64/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin.debug...(no debugging symbols found)...done.
(no debugging symbols found)...done."

when run in gdb.

Comment 9 Martin Stransky 2012-02-21 09:29:58 UTC
It's a classic crash in gdk_display_close(), dupe of bug 543165.

Comment 11 Martin Stransky 2012-02-21 09:43:41 UTC
One of upstream fixes is https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=576933 but it looks like we see a different one.

Comment 12 Martin Stransky 2012-02-21 09:45:12 UTC
Okay, I'll check it. Do you run through vnc, any virtualization or is it a bare metal?

Comment 13 Jiri Koten 2012-02-21 09:48:49 UTC
It is a virt. guest machine, qemu-kvm + spice.

Comment 14 Jiri Koten 2012-02-21 12:17:05 UTC
Same results on bare metal.

Comment 15 Martin Stransky 2012-02-22 13:37:27 UTC
Does it affect thunderbird only? Firefox uses the same code so I'd expect the crashes there too.

Comment 16 Martin Stransky 2012-02-22 14:39:03 UTC
Firefox does not crash here. Anyway, do you have installed the Chinese fonts?

Comment 17 Jiri Koten 2012-02-22 16:34:25 UTC
I tested both with and w/o Chinese fonts, both crashed. I Haven't tested with Firefox.

Comment 18 Martin Stransky 2012-02-23 21:33:47 UTC
Okay, it looks like we have to apply gtk2-2.10 workaround here. We should add it to next security update.
