NullPointerException in GTK file dialog when choosing from "recently used files"
Last modified: 2013-03-27 15:12:14 EDT
Description of problem:
When opening a file from GTK's "recently used files", the following exception is thrown:
Exception in thread "Thread-0" java.lang.NullPointerException
at sun.awt.X11.GtkFileDialogPeer.run(Native Method)
The user interface stops responding to events (however the application is still redrawn and other threads continue. I'm not sure how to inspect further..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version : 1.0.1
Release : 1.fc17
File >> Open >> Select any file from "recently used files".
Problem persists after reboot and after removing (then re-populating by opening files) ~.local/share/recently-used.xbel. I have attached the contents of that file when it only contains one element.
On my installation arduino reports on launch:
WARNING: RXTX Version mismatch
Jar version = RXTX-2.2
native lib Version = RXTX-2.2pre2
$ yum search rxtx
Version : 2.2
Release : 0.6.20100211.fc17.1
(I can't see how that would be related but I have reported it just in case!)

This is really a bug in openjdk, I opened bug #928500 with a patch, let's hope it lands soonish
