Tracker crashed when I was switching workspaces, but I think I've seen this before. Not sure if it is related to switching workspaces. Revision 29884.

Hmm again after a workspace change, but I cannot reproduce it at will

(In #4038) Duplicate of #3710.

(In #3914) That's another duplicate of #3710 actually.

Same cause probably, but it's definitely not (just) related to switching workspaces.

comment:5 by aldeck, 10 years ago

Has anyone found a reproducible case? If not, can you give more details about what you where doing (and compiler/smp)? Also looked at descriptions of #4038 and #3914. I tried hard but i'm still unable to reproduce here with hrev31316 gcc2 4cpus.

comment:6 by mmlr, 10 years ago

I think it has to do with the column state. It usually happens when opening a folder on a read-only volume from an old BeOS installation (with the old column info attribute format) or when opening a freshly unzipped folder (with no column info attributes at all). I think it comes up when no column state is present yet. Opening works, but then when the columns should get invalidated it crashes (most probably because of accessing a deleted BString). It might be more easily visible with single window browse enabled.

Thanks Michael, i tried the different things you suggested (during the last two hours:)), but unfortunately, except a minor redrawing glitch in one of my tests, i didn't encounter the crash. Other ideas? To the ones that witnessed the bug, anything related to what mmlr suggested?

Unfortunately the laptop I've experienced this bug on is now full with windows and fedora, and I cannot boot Haiku from USB stick (hangs after USB handover I believe). So at the moment I cannot do much to help. I've ordered a larger drive for the laptop, I'll leave some space for Haiku on it. (320G should help :)) My laptop is a compal IFL90, with a santa rosa chipset and core 2 duo processor, always on smp, 2G memory. I've had it intermittently, not always on workspace switching, but most of the time.

Owner: changed from axeld to aldeck
Status: newassigned

Ok, it's still hard to get it but now i managed to reproduce it a few times when switching workspaces with a folder open of a read-only hrev5 partition. Not that great but that should be enough to start working on it. Better/simpler test cases are still welcome :)

comment:10 by axeld, 10 years ago

I would assume that this is a binary compatibility problem of a changed flattened column format.

comment:11 by aldeck, 10 years ago

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

Fixed in hrev31378

It ended up being a single window navigation issue, that would happen only under certain conditions, see commit log.

For reference, here is the test case (100% reproducible) that i used after understanding the problem:

1) switch to single window navigation mode.

in any folder, add an additional attribute column
create a new sub folder
navigate immediately into it
trigger an invalidation on the column title bar (moving a window over it, or switching workspaces)
