Can you try other locale? Like US/CZ.
I don't see any similar crash in Thunderbird 7 - thunderbird-7.0-0.6b3.el5_7.
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.
The crash upon exit is back in thunderbird-10.0.1-3.el5_8.
Please install debuginfo and try again. And test an upstream binary too.
Tb run with $ LANG=zh_TW.utf8 thunderbird -g -d gdb, gdb output + t a a bt
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.
It's a classic crash in gdk_display_close(), dupe of bug 543165.
Upstream binary also crashed.
Notes: GLXtest process failed (exited with status 1): GLX version older than the required 1.3
This report also contains technical information about the state of the application when it crashed.
One of upstream fixes is https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=576933 but it looks like we see a different one.
Okay, I'll check it. Do you run through vnc, any virtualization or is it a bare metal?
It is a virt. guest machine, qemu-kvm + spice.
Same results on bare metal.
Does it affect thunderbird only? Firefox uses the same code so I'd expect the crashes there too.
Firefox does not crash here. Anyway, do you have installed the Chinese fonts?
I tested both with and w/o Chinese fonts, both crashed. I Haven't tested with Firefox.
Okay, it looks like we have to apply gtk2-2.10 workaround here. We should add it to next security update.
