#4104 closed bug (fixed)

Occasional debugger call from Observable class destructor when Icon-O-Matic is quit

I have been using Icon-O-Matic a lot lately and I have been seeing periodically. Sometimes when IOM is quit, the crash dialog comes up. The stacktrace indicates the problem is from a debugger call:

228: DEBUGGER: Observable::~Observable() - 1 observers still watching, first: 12PathListItem

debug_server: Thread 228 entered the debugger: Debugger call: `Observable::~Observable() - 1 observers still watching, first: 12PathListItem

So for whatever reason a PathListItem is not being removed from the Observer list before the Observable is destroyed.

I could reproduce this bug on quit:

Hi korli,

That is good to see I'm not alone in seeing this. Unfortunately I only see it occasionally and I haven't yet figured out what a reproducable test case is (mostly because I'm just trying to use IOM to make icons and am not just testing it.) Do you have such a test case?

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Should be have been fixed by hrev32707. See commit message for how to track possibly more reference counting problems. Please reopen if you see such a crash on quit again.
