Description Kostas Karanikolas 2006-01-17 05:38:48 UTC
I've noticed a consistent crash of a unicode gtk/wxGtk application in cairo. The
backtrace appears simillar to bug 4505, however the application works fine until
, what I'm guessing is an unknown unicode string needs to get rendered, when
this crash occurs.

I'm running this application within XVnc (tightvnc 1.3_alpha7) and the server
should be running in 16-bit color (and not 8-bit pseudocolor as mentioned in bug
4505), but it could be related.


The other related libs are:

Comment 1 Tom Nelson 2006-04-28 06:03:08 UTC
I can easily reproduce a similar problem with gtk+-2.8.3/examples/paned/paned 
which shows up all yellow on X-Win32 in my environment.  Some of my co-workers 
see teal.  Why is this relavent here?  Because we also have problems with 
Exceed and viewing the Linux on a Solaris and have seen the core dump when 
experimenting with Pseudo Color to try to workaround the situation.  My guess 
is that wrong color issues are related to this seg fault.  See bug 5212.

The color problems we have seen from Cairo affect gtk+, wxwidgets, and QT in 
many situations when the users try to make use of the Cairo dependent in a 
common X-windows use model of running on one machine and viewing on another.  I 
would strongly plead for this bug to be fixed as well as bug 5212. 
Comment 2 Chris Wilson 2008-10-10 10:23:30 UTC
The segmentation issue has been fixed so this becomes a simple dup of 5212 (which I haven't yet worked out if has been fixed...)
