Crashes on clicking on a hyperlink in RHEL4

Reported by: snesreviews Owned by:
Milestone: Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.0.2 Keywords: pango_default_break


Nice software but...

Compiled from source, 2.02, start up in debug mode and when I click on a hyperlink, it crashes with this error. This also happened in previous versions including going back to the gaim days:

(14:10:30) g_log: file break.c: line 780 (pango_default_break): assertion failed: (IN_BREAK_TABLE (break_type)) Aborted

Cheers, Frank

I hit this same bug on version 2.3.1 which I just compiled from source using all the defaults. The problem is not with clicking on a link. It appears to be a tooltip problem.

If I hover over the URL for more than about 0.5 second, it crashes with the pango message previously mentioned. If I quickly move over the URL and click and then quickly move off, the URL opens in the browser and it doesn't crash. If I click on the URL and then hover there, it crashes (presumably when it would have opened the tooltip).

I tried setting tooltip_delay to a huge value in the prefs.xml but that didn't seem to help. The problem happens both in IRC and Y!M sessions. It also happens when I run older versions of pidgin and gaim.

strace output from right before the crash:

stat64("/usr/lib/pango/1.4.0/modules/", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0755, st_size=11696, ...}) = 0 open("/usr/lib/pango/1.4.0/modules/", O_RDONLY) = 11 read(11, "\177ELF\1\1\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\3\0\3\0\1\0\0\0\240\n\0"..., 512) = 512 fstat64(11, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0755, st_size=11696, ...}) = 0 mmap2(NULL, 10216, PROT_READ|PROT_EXEC, MAP_PRIVATE, 11, 0) = 0xb67d2000 mmap2(0xb67d4000, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_FIXED, 11, 0x2) = 0xb67d4000 close(11) = 0 mmap2(NULL, 233472, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0xb6799000 munmap(0xb6799000, 233472) = 0 write(2, "\nPango-ERROR : file break.c: l"..., 123) = 123 rt_sigprocmask(SIG_UNBLOCK, [ABRT], NULL, 8) = 0 kill(11502, SIGABRT) = 0 --- SIGABRT (Aborted) @ 0 (0) ---

I'm on gentoo version... uh... I'm on gentoo.

This is a pango issue.

If you GetABacktrace, we might be able to make a suggestion.
