Last modified: 2005-01-04 18:42:09 UTC
Distribution: Fedora Core release 2 (Tettnang)
Version: GNOME2.6. 2.6.x
Gnome-Distributor: Red Hat, Inc
Synopsis: gnome-panel crashes when trying to add multiple background images at once
Description of Problem:
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. have gnome-panel running
2. Open up gnome-background-properties
3. click add Wallpaper
4. Select more than one image and click open (one image at a time seems
to not crash)
gnome-panel crashed and disappeared. I can restart it manually though.
How often does this happen?
as often as i try to add multiple wallpapers. (completely reproducible
on my machine)
[aiv@dhcp0010 ~]$ gnome-panel
[aiv@dhcp0010 ~]$ bg
[aiv@dhcp0010 ~]$ The program 'gnome-panel' received an X Window System
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadGC (invalid GC parameter)'.
(Details: serial 7224 error_code 13 request_code 62 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error()
 Exit 1 gnome-panel

Thanks for the bug report. Without a stack trace from the crash it's very hard
to determine what caused the crash. Please see
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/getting-traces.cgi for more information about getting
a useful stack trace.
Also, can you post the file names of the multiple images that you selected. I
want to rule out this being a duplicate of bug 135089.
I'm not able to duplicate the crash in 2.8, but that doesn't mean the bug
doesn't still exist.
I'm changing the status to NEEDINFO. If you can get a stack trace to us we can
look at this bug again.
