Description Benjamin Monate 2006-03-07 00:51:05 UTC
While moving a scrollbar in a Motif application, I can deterministically lock
the Xserver.
Debugging with symbols shows this backtrace :

Thanks for your help
Comment 1 Benjamin Herrenschmidt 2006-03-07 08:49:13 UTC
Can you try with 6.9 or 7.0 ?
Comment 2 Benjamin Monate 2006-03-08 21:50:15 UTC
Same symptoms with xorg 7.0.
If you can provide a static binary with symbols, I can try it and check where it
is locked in 7.0.
Comment 3 Benjamin Herrenschmidt 2006-03-09 08:23:57 UTC
Why would you need a static binary ?
Comment 4 Benjamin Monate 2006-03-09 19:57:19 UTC
I just need a binary with debbuging symbols that would run on my Ubuntu 5.10
distro without breaking my existing installation.
Comment 5 Daniel Stone 2007-02-27 01:30:47 UTC
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.

This is a common bug, not specific to linux/an arch. Marking as duplicate as the other bug report has more info
