Description Andrew Rucker Jones 2003-06-04 19:03:03 UTC
Description of problem: Certain PostScript files cause components of ggv to
crash when loaded.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ghostscript-7.05-32.1 (if this is even used)
In other words, RH 9 with all the latest patches.

How reproducible: Load the referenced URL with Mozilla, go to File -> Print...,
choose to print to a file, then load the resulting file into ggv (e.g. ggv

Steps to Reproduce: See above.
Actual results: The ggv GUI appears, but it is empty. There is a core file from
'ggv-postscript-' in the working directory. Further attempts to load the file
through the GUI result in further core files. Understandably, the following
error is printed to the console: (ggv:25615): Bonobo-WARNING **: Leaked a total
of 2 refs to 2 bonobo object(s)

Expected results: The file should be displayed.

Additional info: Sorry about the slow Internet connection and large file for the
URL above. Core files are also available if necessary.

Mass reassign to Marco.

Comment 2 Andrew Rucker Jones 2005-02-18 14:23:15 UTC
Somewhere along the way, this bug was fixed. Current versions of the
above mentioned programs (mozilla-1.7.3-17, ggv-2.8.0-1,
ghostscript-7.07-33) don't exhibit this behavior anymore.
