Description of problem:
Xspice server crashes after after second close of tab with running spice-html5 session in firefox:
Xorg: marshaller.c:197: spice_marshaller_destroy: Assertion `m->data->marshallers == m' failed.
: sudo Xspice --disable-ticketing --xsession /usr/bin/gnome-terminal :1 --port 5909
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Xspice server on port 5909
2. websockify 5959 localhost:5909
3. Go to http://localhost//spice
4. Click "start"
5. Close that browser tab
6. Open new tab, go to http://localhost//spice and click start again
7. Close that browser tab
(I was testing https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Spice_html5 )
Xspice server crashes with "Xorg: marshaller.c:197: spice_marshaller_destroy: Assertion `m->data->marshallers == m' failed."
Xspice should not crash.
I was able to reproduce this as well (and both Alon and I have seen this error at times in the past). For me, it took several tab closings to trigger the issue. Shutting down normally (clicking stop) did not seem to trigger the issue.
I'm fairly certain that this is not a spice-html5 error, so much as a spice server / qxl driver bug. That is, if you were to replicate this with any client, perhaps having to exit using kill -9, I suspect you would get the same results.
However, it may be that this is a very useful test case to help us reproduce this reliably and squash it.
So thanks for the report!

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's

more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
