gst-browser crashes when loading modified images.

Gnu mailing list
Hello,

Yesterday I posted on #gnu-smalltalk and got no response, and since the
issue tracker seems to only be open to registered users and registration
is closed, I am reaching out any way I can.

Here is more detailed problem information.

OS: Arch Linux
GST: GNU Smalltalk version 3.2.92-edb6bad6

Problem description: gst-browser crashes when loading previously saved images.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create new image with `gst-browser -iI test.im`.
2. Create new class or namespace.
3. Exit gst-browser, saving the image.
4. Attempt to load image with `gst-browser -I test.im`.

Error output:

a Smalltalk Stream:3: Error occurred while not in byte code interpreter!!

Hi,

sorry for experiencing a crash. I don't remember if this part ever worked. I think
what happens is that after the image resumes pointers to the old GTK+ are dangling.

It would be great if you want to see what happens. The first item is to get debug
symbols installed to see where in GST it crashed.

To see which Smalltalk code was executed the best method is to use
_gst_show_backtrace(stdout) within gdb.

If you take a look at .gdbinit of the smalltalk sourcecode you will find a macro
like this. If you load the file typing stbt will give you the Smalltalk backtrace


define stbt
set unwindonsignal on
call _gst_show_backtrace (stdout)
call (void)fflush(stdout)
set unwindonsignal off
end
document stbt
Print the backtrace of the currently running Smalltalk process.
end

That sort of issue is the first thing I would suspect. My confusion
is that saving an image seems like a core feature that has
to work every time for the browser to be useful. As it stands, the
browser feels unpolished. This shows through in features with odd menu
locations and the weak search facilities, but those are minor in
comparison.

Inability to recover an image means working around the issue by filing
out any changes made with the browser and remembering to load them in
later or giving up the browser entirely.

Who originally developed the browser?

I have free time this month before I start a new position. I will do
this and may be back for guidance.

Re: gst-browser crashes when loading modified images.

Gnu mailing list
In reply to this post by Holger Freyther
I have built the software with debugging symbols and started using using
gdb to examine the crash point. Summary information is attached.

As best as I can tell, the problem occurs because loading the program
image resumes GTK's never-shut-down event loop and attempts to continue
processing events. The stale events from the last session cause
operations on nonexistent widgets, causing the crash. Interestingly, the
variables pointing to the nonexistent widgets seem to already be nil.

I don't yet have a good handle on the GTK code. The fix could be as
simple as clearing the event queue immediately before saving the
image. The question is if the existing code will recreate the GTK widgets by
resuming the same event loop with an empty queue. If not, things get tricky.

Maybe we can save the image in a "clean" non-preemptible process that
recreates the browser on resume?

wdut?
