xfwm4 segfault sometimes observed when exiting xine-ui full-screen mode


Description Darren Salt 2006-08-01 02:33:42 CEST
Found a nice crasher for xfwm4...

Run xine-ui (CVS HEAD will do) and open various of its windows:: controls,
open file, open playlist, open location, playlist load, playlist editor.
Toggle to and from full-screen mode repeatedly; sooner or later, it'll
segfault. A typical backtrace is attached.  

As far as I can tell, this is happening as a result of a ShapeNotify event
on a window: the CWindow struct looks valid, but it contains a pointer to a
broken Client struct. (It may be that the pointer itself is invalid.)   
The window size _suggests_ that the problem window may be xine's full-screen 
window (the size parameters for resize_win() match the screen size).
Certainly, other strange things are happening to xine windows, such as its  
top-level menu gaining a frame...

Patches applied: my switch-no-raise patch, and a reversion of the part of rev. 22470 which applies to src/keyboard.c.
Comment 1 Darren Salt 2006-08-04 00:41:03 CEST
Just had xfwm4 (well, presumably xfwm4) start munching CPU time then, within a minute, it had exited. No more info than that ATM, but it could be the same problem...
Comment 2 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2006-08-15 16:01:34 CEST
Should be fixed in svn now, can you update to rev. 22776 and report? 
Comment 3 Darren Salt 2006-08-15 23:04:41 CEST
Well... it *seems* to be fixed. I'm seeing xine fall over with a BadWindow error and a segfault (usually the segfault), but this looks like xine-ui bugginess.

Closing for now; if I see the problem again, I'll reopen this.

Bug #2105
