Description Harald Judt 2011-12-21 02:28:57 UTC
Since commit http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/commit/?id=51437995a5041a8c53c33b508b1607c78a5fa463, xserver crashes when easystroke tries to grab the mouse.

Steps to reproduce:
0) Easystroke can be found here: http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/easystroke/wiki
1) Configure easystroke to use mouse button 3 (the right mouse button) to draw a gesture.
2) Try to draw the gesture.

Expected results:
Whatever, but not a crash.

Actual results:
xserver crashes.

Comment 1 Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia 2012-01-02 20:36:12 UTC
The regression is new to 1.12 as the offending commit was not cherry-picked into 1.11
Comment 2 Peter Hutterer 2012-01-04 21:59:00 UTC

Comment 3 Harald Judt 2012-01-04 23:31:28 UTC
Thanks. I confirm the patch fixes the problem.

There is another, long-standing bug with regard to easystroke in xorg-server-1.12, though it is not a regression: Bug 39989 - SD grabs interact badly with animated cursors. Maybe we could get that patch into xorg-server-1.12 too?

    dix: fix wrong condition checking for attached slave (#44003)
Comment 5 ybdjkfd 2012-04-13 17:57:19 UTC
As I opened a ticket in LaunchPad https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/981193 concerning this issue, will this fix the issue I experienced in Ubuntu 11.10 as quoted here:

"I have determined some interaction with easystroke, a gesture recognition program is to blame here, not Firefox or ATI exactly. The program easystoke was used to map a side button on my mouse to Super+A, which activates the "Present Windows" effect in KDE/kwin.

Scrolling in Konqueor and hitting the gesture button on the mouse. Crash. It's not just Firefox nor Mozilla. (Thunderbird also crashed in this regard earlier).
Scrolling in the Desktop (cube effect) and hitting the gesture button on the mouse. Crash. It's not a Web page nor plugin.
Scrolling in the above scenarios and hitting Super+A on the keyboard itself. No crash. It's not "Present Windows" nor kwin in this regard.
Scrolling in the above scenarios and hitting the same button on the mouse without easystroke. No crash. Its not the mouse input in that regard.

So, what is the remapping of a mouse button to Super+A and scrolling at the same time in easystroke doing to Xorg or FGLRX?"
