Description (last modified by anevilyak)

I've just upgraded to hrev45477. After setting up all my preferences, i have rebooted and when the Desktop appear i have found that Deskbar crashed. Try to restart Deskbar doesn't help: it always crashed. After some tests i have found that the issue was caused by two replicants: NetWorkStatus and ProcessController. Yes: if i install these two replicants (or only just one of this two), at the boot time they caused Deskbar crash.

This is the part of syslog which tell about the crash with these replicants:

That's actually not the replicant's fault, looks like a bug in some of the recent changes with respect to the team expander menu bar.

Please try again in hrev45479 or greater. I am unable to reproduce this bug. You said that you set your preferences and then experienced this bug, can you tell me what preferences you set? I assume that you're in horizontal mode from the attached debug report. Also, gcc2h or gcc4h?

comment:3 by Giova84, 8 years ago

Hi John, sure: i will try (when a newer nightly build will be available on and i'll send you a feedback about this issue, if still present or not. In anyway with "set my preferences" i just mean preferences about keyboard shortcut, fonts, appearance and so on: nothing of particular :-) And i'm using GCC2h

Replying to jscipione:

Please try again in hrev45479 or greater.

Hi John, i've tried with hrev45480 and the bug is still here :-( If i insert NetworkStatus and/or ProcessController as replicants in the Deskbar, when Deskbar start at boot time, will crash. The only way to properly restart the Deskbar is to delete the file "Deskbar_replicants" located under /home/config/settings. The strange fact is that all others replicants doesn't cause Deskbar crash. Only NetworkStatus and ProcessController.

Currently i'm running hrev45525 and this issue seems gone (Deskbar no longer crashes at the next reboot if i add ProcessController and NetworkStatus replicants).

Thanks for the note!

For posterity I suspect that this bug was related to #9632 and thus was fixed along with that bug in hrev45512.
