Description Edd Barrett 2016-05-25 10:44:21 UTC
Hi,

I posted an X bug to x11@openbsd.org recently. See below the report. I figured I should raise this upstream.


```
$ Xorg -version

X.Org X Server 1.17.4
Release Date: 2015-10-28
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
Build Operating System: OpenBSD 6.0 amd64 
Current Operating System: OpenBSD wilfred.home 6.0 GENERIC.MP#12 amd64
Build Date: 23 May 2016  06:21:16PM
 
Current version of pixman: 0.32.8
        Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org
        to make sure that you have the latest version.
```

Original report follows:
```
Hi,

CC Matthieu and a couple of others who are experiencing (maybe) the same issue.

Over the past few months, I've been troubled by Xorg crashing when I am
using gvim. I am unable to reliably reproduce the crash, but the last
time I saw it, I was resizing the gvim window. Below is a trace for this
instance.

I've only had a cursory inspection, but it looks to me like a value (pt
in frame 2) is being used as a pointer (p in frame 1). The dereference
p->x is segging the X server.

Any ideas? Shall I raise this upstream?

To follow up on this, there are two workarounds that I know of:

1) Build gvim with a different GUI toolkit. I used the motif GUI for about a week without any crashes. Although this works, you will lose the modern font rendering features that the GTK backend offers. You cannot use freetype fonts, only old school X bitmap fonts.

2) Switch from SNA acceleration to UXA acceleration. I have been running under this configuration for a week or so now, and again, no crashes. To apply this workaround, add the following to your xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
    Identifier "devname"
    Driver "intel"
    Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"
EndSection


I'm hoping one of the upstream devs who understands the SNA code will pick this up and fix the crash, so that workarounds are not required.
