#9312 closed defect (duplicate)

file transfer crash

Reported by: mikaelz Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.5.6 Keywords: crash, file transfer


someone sent me a file transfer request through the MSN protocol. I accepted; instead of beginning the transfer, Pidgin crashed. I repeated this 3 times and it keeps happening. running 2.5.6 on XP SP2

the error that pops up says:

Assertion failed!

Program: C:\Program Files\Pidgin\pidgin.exe File: cairo.c Line: 87

Expression: _cario_status_is_error (status)

Closed as duplicate of #8129.

this is not a duplicate of #8129 since Pidgin did not crash on startup but rather when a file transfer was initiated.

it's crashing in the same library, can you try the workaround in

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by datallah

I think this is actually a duplicate of #8565 (it is caused by the clearlooks theme).

khc, I reinstalled GTK and replaced the files as requested, no dice

datallah, you are right. changing the theme from Clearlooks to MS-Windows fixed the issue.
