Description Jan Pazdziora 2013-05-15 15:02:51 EDT
Description of problem:

Whenever new file is selected to play, the number of DIR filehandles increases by six. Eventually parole rejects to play the next song because it reaches too many open files.

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

# rpm -q parole

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start parole.
2. Get its pid.
3. Run lsof -p $the_pid.
4. Hit Ctrl + O and select some .ogg file, play it.
5. Hit Ctrl + O again and select different .ogg file, from different directory.
3. Run lsof -p $the_pid again.
Actual results:

There are six DIR filehandles of the first directory and six for the other one.
If you select the first file again, there will be six more.

Expected results:

The number of open files should not grow with every new song played.

Bug is still present with parole-0.5.2-1.fc19.x86_64.
Comment 2 Filipe Rosset 2013-12-21 14:12:14 EST
Hi Jan, can you please take a look if it's still present with parole 0.5.4?
If its still present I believe we should file a bug with upstream guys.

Comment 4 Jan Pazdziora 2013-12-22 05:06:04 EST
I don't have local Fedora 20 installation to try. What behaviour do you observe on your installation with the steps from comment 0? Is there anything in 0.5.4's changelog suggesting it's been fixed?
Comment 5 Filipe Rosset 2014-01-03 17:44:08 EST
Hi Jan, I can confirm the issue, but here with parole-0.5.4-1.fc20.x86_64 the number of DIR filehandles are 4 instead of 6. I'm not sure if something was changed in the code to use less filehanles than the older version.
