Description of problem:
I ran the command policytool (from OpenJDK) and it crashed on startup. I then used abrt to report the bug using the retrace server, and the retrace server failed. I then told abrt to use a local gdb to generate the backtrace, which it did, but then gdb crashed - see attached backtrace.
The full gdb command line was:
gdb -batch -ex 'set debug-file-directory /usr/lib/debug:/var/cache/abrt-di/usr/lib/debug' -ex 'file /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-188.8.131.52.x86_64/bin/policytool' -ex 'core-file ./coredump' -ex 'thread apply all backtrace 2048 full' -ex 'info sharedlib' -ex 'print (char*)__abort_msg' -ex 'print (char*)__glib_assert_msg' -ex 'info registers' -ex disassemble
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It is trying to print the vtable here.
My current theory is that this code should be checking
TYPE_VPTR_BASETYPE, but is not. I'm testing this.
That was the problem. Patch submitted:
