Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 85554
Selecting on Nautilus desktop crashes X
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:50 EDT
Description of problem:
I used the pointer device to tag an area on the desktop (without files, just the
area) from the lower right to upper left corner. At a selection of about
300x200px the system (at least X) crashed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
After reboot I was able to verify this behavior on the desktop. I have not
tested whether this happens in Nautilus file manager windows, too.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to some free space on the desktop.
2. Point there and hold down the left mouse button
3. Move pointer to somewhere in the upper left while holding down the button.
4. Crashs are funny.
That sounds very much like an X server bug. Probably an XRender implementation bug.
Doesn't do that for me. Please attach relevant hardware details, XFree86
log and config file using the link below as individual uncompressed file
