GUI: Crash on exit

Reported by: lordhoto Owned by: SF/tanoku

I had an (sadly not reproduce able) problem with our GUI code. When I exited (from within kyra, but I tried to check valgrind, no invalid memory writes when I played through the same part of the game again) I got an segmentation fault. Here is the backtrace:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I sadly have the fear that it might be related to somehow corrupted memory. As a side note I was also able to crash the GUI when exiting the debugger today, but sadly I don't have any backtrace for that one.

Oh I forgot to say: branch-0-13-0 of r38426 with g++ (Ubuntu 4.3.2-1ubuntu12) 4.3.2 on Linux/amd64 (Ubuntu).

You are right Johannes, that's ought to be memory corruption -- looks like a hash table destructor is trying to free a string which was already freed... Something quite impossible to debug with only the backtrace.

Are you 100% sure that the memory corruption originates from the GUI code? Maybe you did something strange in Kyra the first time...

Just did another valgrind run of the last part of the game, which I played when I got that crash, still no warnings from within kyra. This time I did some debugger opening/closing etc. though and bingo got some invalid writes from GUI code. I'll attach the related valgrind log as a file.

Do you happen to recall which dialog was being drawn when that happened?

comment:5 by lordhoto, 15 years ago

The only dialog I used was the debugger, so that must be it :-).

comment:6 by SF/tanoku, 15 years ago

Classic or modern theme? ^^

comment:7 by SF/tanoku, 15 years ago

Nevermind, fixed now. Cheers Johannes, thanks for reporting. ^^

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

comment:9 by lordhoto, 15 years ago

I hope that was the reason for the crash though.
