Xorg.0.log.old file

Description of problem:

We've found that some errors are reported when you log out of the RHEL 5.9 desktop. This occurs on any system with an nVidia or AMD graphics card installed, with the in-box open source drivers or with the third party closed source driver installed. We do see that it happens when the card-2-monitor connection is DP.  This error does not seem to happen when you're connected to a DVI connection.

The following backtrace can be found in the Xorg.log.old file:

0: /usr/bin/Xorg(xf86SigHandler+0x81) [0x80c3511]
1: [0xe2e420]
2: /usr/bin/Xorg [0x81186b4]
3: /usr/bin/Xorg [0x8129d94]
4: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libramdac.so [0x98e837]
5: /usr/bin/Xorg [0x81229f5]
6: /usr/bin/Xorg [0x815f0cd]
7: /usr/bin/Xorg(FreeCursor+0x6a) [0x807ee3a]
8: /usr/bin/Xorg(main+0x4d7) [0x80709a7]
9: /lib/libc.so.6(__libc_start_main+0xdc) [0x14eebc]
10: /usr/bin/Xorg(FontFileCompleteXLFD+0x205) [0x806fc51]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server abortin

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 5.9/SS1/64
2. Reboot and answer firstboot questions
3. Login and proceed to desktop
4. Use the menu option to log out

Actual results:
Upon logging back into the desktop, you will see a /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old file which contains the backtrace shown above

Expected results:
No errors, no backtrace

Additional info:
Comment 1 Adam Jackson 2012-11-02 16:54:46 EDT
Raising for 5.9, this is probably due to some memory leak fixes applied in 5.9.
Comment 2 Adam Jackson 2012-11-05 11:44:37 EST
Devel ack for fixing this, it's clearly a regression introduced by the memory leak fixes already applied.
Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2012-11-07 16:52:30 EST
Probably fixed by this build:


Please test.
Comment 7 Jeff Burrell 2012-11-12 17:33:39 EST
As far as I can tell, the trace back issue has been fixed by these changes.

Would this have been expected to be in snapshot 5?  I'm not seeing it there...
Comment 8 Michael Boisvert 2012-11-13 15:04:33 EST
I reproduced the backtrace on xorg-x11-server-1.1.1-48.98.el5. Upon installing xorg-x11-server-1.1.1-48.100.el5, the backtrace did not reappear.
