  • create a save panel with "filepanel --save"
  • press SHIFT + ALT + C (or X or V)

Attached the rather long full crash report. Here's a cut:

Looks like a stack overflow. Not sure what the root cause is, but it's probably related to the "missing shortcuts in file panels" bug...

More precisely, it seems there is an infinite recursion of this sequence:

It looks like:

So it looks like the culprit is probably this block of code:

This looks mightily suspicious to me for a few reasons:

  1. Why does this code exist in the first place (for the generic B_CUT/B_COPY/B_PASTE ...)? Won't the BWindow handle this by default?
  2. In addition to the generic B_* messages, it's also forwarding a few k* messages which belong to Tracker and would be unrecognized by a generic view, if one were focused (and thus probably cause the infinite recursion seen here).
  3. It's also locking the looper of the focused view. Why? The view will necessarily be a child view of this window, no? So why does its looper (our looper) need to be locked?

Cc: axeld added

From git-blame it looks like that code has been that way since Tracker was imported. It looks like it was added in a patch applied by axeld to the OpenTracker repo in 2002:

Originally it was done by Shard, not me, though. I don't know why this code is there, actually. Locking is not necessary in MessageReceived(), as the looper is always locked when processing events.

In any case, yes, this code looks suspicious. Just removing it might break Tracker's copy/paste feature, though. I guess this needs some more investigation.
