openbox reconfigure crashes imsettings-xim (X needs restart)
Last modified: 2014-06-23 09:52:19 EDT
Description of problem:
in openbox 3.5.0-1 selecting Reconfigure from the menu crashes imsettings-xim.
after the crash, mouse can not be used (cursor disappears..) and different desktop or new window can not be focused, I can use only the one currently active. (So I have to restart X)
[209638.090568] imsettings-xim trap int3 ip:300b050fa5 sp:7fff11435db0 error:0
openbox 22.214.171.124-8 and earlier versions work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. "XIM=ibus" in ~/.xinputrc (not sure if it matters)
2. "exec /usr/bin/openbox-session" in ~/.xinitrc
openbox reconfigure crashes vital stuff
openbox reconfigure works
latest openbox: xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap kills imsettings-xim and I have to restart X

I'm not really sure what is going on here, but I think imsettings-xim shouldn't crash even if openbox is doing something wrong. Let's try reassign this bug to imsettings and see if its maintainers know better.
Well, please attach $HOME/.cache/imsettings/log.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

Does not crash nowadays
