GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 107889
gtk-demo segfaults when Ctrl-A is pressed in source browser window
Last modified: 2011-02-04 16:11:59 UTC
Also crashes in garnome-0.21.2. Running gtk-demo, picking the Source tab
and pressing Ctrl-A dumps core.
Hmm, I don't see the crash on the stable branch; it probably got fixed
by the following commit:
2003-02-14 Matthias Clasen <email@example.com>
* gtk/gtktextview.c (popup_targets_received): Remove bogus
GTK_OBJECT cast. Hopefully got it right now...
(gtk_text_view_move_cursor_internal): Add a default: to avoid
But even if it doesn't crash, C-a is not working if the cursor is not
visible. This got broken by my changes to switch move_cursor_internal
to viewport-based movements when the cursor is not visible. I guess
the right fix is to introduce a separate binding signal for select_all.

Here is a patch for 2.2. For head, it will have to be combined with
the viewport-movement patch for 2.4, which is attached to bug 78669.

gtk-demo crash backtrace
I have attached a backtrace in case that might be useful.
I'd like to get this fix into 2.2.2 to avoid the regression on C-a.
What do you think,
It's not clear to me what the above has to do with the crash...
But as for not working, well, it makes me a bit sad to
see the "elegant" approach of composing select-all out
of multiple primitive operations, but yeah, this change
is probably right.
I don't see any problem with adding a new binding signal
The "select" parameter, however confuses me:
What's the meaning of this parameter?
If select all from the menu or from the keyboard has
different effects on the primary selection, that's
I doubt the explicit call to gtk_text_buffer_copy_clipboard()
in select_all_cb was needed, since change the selection
should automatically update the primary selection.
You probably can use append_action_signal() for select_all
with this change if the select paramter isn't needed?.
(No big win, but increases consistency of the code a bit.)
of the code a bit?)
The crash was caused by a missing default: clause which I added on
2003-02-14. The patch we're discussing here has nothing to do with the
crash; it is about restoring the functionality of C-a in invisible
The "select" parameter is about select-all vs. unselect-all. Note that
gtk_text_view_select_all (..., FALSE) is used for C-\

A bit weird to have a 'select-all' callback be able to
also unselect-all, but not completely ridiculous.
The patch looks OK to me, though my comment about
gtk_text_buffer_copy_clipboard() still stands.
You were right, the copy_clipboard call was unnecessary. Committed to
