Description Bug Report 2017-03-18 23:33:33 UTC
Weston crashes after opening a GTK application (say gedit) pressing Ctrl+O, typing file name (e.g starting with a dot) when once file opens clicking the close icon. Using mouse does not seem to cause a crash.
Comment 1 Bug Report 2017-03-18 23:33:59 UTC
This is on Archlinux 64bit, intel and latest weston
Comment 2 Bug Report 2017-03-18 23:39:06 UTC
The issue does not occur on Gnome or sway so it's an issue with weston and/or weston+gtk.
Comment 3 bugreport11 2018-03-27 19:49:38 UTC
Still an issue with latest master and latest Archlinux
Comment 4 Daniel Stone 2018-03-28 09:12:06 UTC
This only happens for me in Xwayland mode, not when GEdit runs natively. Backtrace for xwl:

Can't seem to make it happen under Valgrind, annoyingly.

It crashes on native Wayland for me. Here are the steps

In terminal run weston

Click weston-terminal and type gedit

Press Ctrl+O, then start typing /home/username/.config/weston.ini - The actual file doesn't have to exist, but the dot after /home/username/ has to for the crash to occur. Interestingly, typing /home/.username/somefile doesn't crash.

After pressing Enter in the file picker, within 1-3 secs click close icon in gedit. It should crash in 1-3 secs.

Getting these in journalctl
