Comment 1 Benoît Dejean 2006-07-02 18:49:57 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. Without a stack trace from the crash it's very hard to determine what caused it.
Can you provide us with one? Please see for more information on how to do so.
Comment 2 Karsten Bräckelmann 2006-09-18 02:11:50 UTC
Ugh. Got a stacktrace. Even got debugging symbols. REOPENing.
Comment 3 Benoît Dejean 2006-09-18 11:09:34 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. Unfortunately, that stack trace is not very useful in determining the cause of the crash. Can you get us one with debugging symbols? Please see for more information on how to do so.
Comment 4 Karsten Bräckelmann 2006-09-18 13:52:54 UTC
Benoît, the stacktrace is fine. Please explain, what you want. REOPENing.
Comment 5 Benoît Dejean 2006-09-18 16:29:56 UTC
it's not, it has no debug info about multiload.
Comment 6 Elijah Newren 2006-09-18 17:57:12 UTC
Benoit: um, multiload-applet-2 isn't what crashed.  gnome-system-monitor was.  Why would debug info about multiload be needed?
Comment 7 Karsten Bräckelmann 2006-09-18 19:12:20 UTC
multiload...  Ah, now I understand. Benoit, as Elijah said, that's not what crashed. The report merely has been set falsely to that product initially, and has been corrected automatically.

So we do not need debugging symbols for multiload.

Anyway -- please be more verbose, when requesting specific information. Multiload isn't mentioned in the GettingTraces documentation at all. Thus, there is no way for the user to understand what you are about, by looking at the page you pointed him to.
Comment 8 Benoît Dejean 2006-09-18 19:40:59 UTC
Sorry, i misread. system-monitor is the name of the applet and the application so i even fool myself. But this stacktrace doesn't have any debug symbol for system-monitor. it's has for gtk, but not system-monitor. So the stacktrace is bad.

and bugbuddy is screwed :

Synopsis: system monitor crashed when left unattended for a weekend
Bugzilla-Product: gnome-applets
Bugzilla-Component: multiload

that why i though it was about the applet, the bug header is always wrong ...
Comment 9 Chris Kühl 2011-02-23 21:46:23 UTC
Is this still occurring? I've tried this a couple times without a crash.
Comment 10 Chris Kühl 2011-03-03 22:47:49 UTC
Due to the lack of response, inability to reproduce, and age of this bug I'm closing.
