Description Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-01 09:08:47 EST
vals[i].length = strlen (tmp);
  vals[i++].value = g_strdup(tmp);

.... and vals[] never gets freed.

Comment 2 Kjartan Maraas 2003-02-17 17:51:30 EST
Apparently this patch was bad. The first g_free (tmp); should go. It made apps hang.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-17 18:00:33 EST
-  g_free(tmp);

was in my patch
upstream forgot to merge that line
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2003-02-17 18:17:25 EST
we already have this in rawhide I believe, I just didn't close the bug. 
(we don't have the hang part)
Comment 5 Kjartan Maraas 2003-05-01 08:51:32 EDT
I'll pull the patch from the srpm then. And close the bug upstream.
Comment 6 Kjartan Maraas 2003-05-01 08:53:05 EDT
Nothing even remotely similar in the current rawhide RPM. Arjan, could you give me a patch to clean up the missing part wrt current GNOME CVS?
Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2003-05-01 09:37:34 EDT
I think this is already in gnome cvs
Comment 8 Kjartan Maraas 2003-05-01 12:05:05 EDT
No, it's not. Arjan's patch still applies cleanly and it was just a bad merge on andersca's part that made it break in the first place. I'll reapply it for the next release (both branches)
Comment 9 Havoc Pennington 2003-05-01 12:14:31 EDT
Right, we just came to same conclusion:

2003-02-04  Anders Carlsson  <andersca@codefactory.se>

	* libgnomeui/gnome-client.c: (client_set_restart_command):
	Revert fix since it caused brokenness.
I thought Anders had *fixed* it not just taken it out ;-)
Comment 10 Kjartan Maraas 2003-05-01 14:17:01 EDT
Commited upstream to both branches.
