Description Mikkel Kruse Johnsen 2013-08-08 09:30:58 EDT
Description of problem:
On some Windows XP machines a Gtk3 app crashes when a window is moved (Maximize/Minimize is working).

I get a "C++ Runetime Error".

I'm not sure if Gtk3 need "C++ Redistributable Package". If it has something to do with that version ?

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

How reproducible:
Start a Gtk3 program and move a window.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start App
2. Move Window

Actual results:

Expected results:
Window is moved

Comment 1 Erik van Pienbroek 2013-08-10 08:18:06 EDT
Could you try to compile your executable with the '-mconsole' flag? This causes your executable to show a console window when it is executed (or you can executable it directly from cmd.exe). I would expect that in this situation it will show additional information in the console window when the runtime error occurs.

Otherwise you'd have to use WinDBG and change its settings so that it breaks on abort() calls (gdb can't catch this for some reason)

I have tried to compile the gtk3-demo.exe with '-mconsole' with no luck.

It happens also on the "gtk3-widget-factory.exe" when moved rapidly around, if someone else could try.

(Only on Windows XP)

Just found this. I'm not sure if that is in Gtk3. A lot have changed in gdkevents-win32.c since Gtk2.

It can be reproduced by this:

1)  Launch any gtk-win32 app
2)  Right-click the application's title bar and select 'Move'
3)  Without clicking your mouse yet, move the mouse, then left-click it, anywhere outside of the app
4)  Right-click the title bar again and your app will crash

I recompiled pixman 0.30.2 with "--disable-sse2" and it now works on Windows XP.

Comment 8 Kalev Lember 2013-09-04 14:57:18 EDT
Thanks for tracking it down. I've built new pixman packages with sse2 disabled, hope this helps.

Disabled sse2 optimization in pixman on my handcrafted mingw GTK+3 toolchain: all is working fine. Many thanks for solving this long-standing issue.
