[abrt] dconf-editor-0.16.0-2.fc19: composite_aligned_boxes: Process /usr/bin/dconf-editor was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
Last modified: 2015-02-17 11:38:56 EST
Description of problem:
Dconf-editor can't handle large arrays.
Every time when I tried to access "org.gnome.shell" the dconf-editor would crash.
Traversing it by clicking on the arrow instead of the item itself would work so the problem was with one of the keys from the shell.
By executing "gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.shell" it became clear that the value of "command-history" was very large and after resetting it with "gsettings reset org.gnome.shell command-history" dconf-editor now can list that location again without crashing.
wc on the old data reveals that dconf-editor chokes on one the following:
492 739 6670

This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no

be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

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
