XFCE4.1 : reboot causes segfault in xcfe4-session and xfsettingsd

Hi,

I really enjoy this new version of the XFCE desktop environment, but I have one issue with it : I can't reboot using the "logout button" in the upper panel.

When I click on reboot, It just logs out from XFCE and returns to lxdm. I tried to log back in, and check dmesg, and here is what I get :

[24907.488113] xfce4-session[7009]: segfault at 8 ip 0000000000413a50 sp 00007ffff69f5d20 error 4 in xfce4-session[400000+27000]
[24907.524955] xfsettingsd[7061] general protection ip:7f892da8d5b0 sp:7fff18616520 error:0 in libSM.so.6.0.1[7f892da8b000+7000]

I don't really know how to investigate this further to properly signal the bug, and I would be grateful if you could help me with this task.

Perhaps some of you do experience the same issue.

Cheers !

(PS reboot from the command line works like a charm, and clicking on reboot in lxdm as well)

Re: XFCE4.1 : reboot causes segfault in xcfe4-session and xfsettingsd

One last thing :

I tried to add the reboot option directly in the menu by changing the plugin's preferences, and rebooting from the menu directly: it reboots all right.

It does segfault however when I use the "Log off..." option which displays a GUI with several choices (log off, reboot, hibernate, suspend, shutdown...) and then click on the reboot button.

Re: XFCE4.1 : reboot causes segfault in xcfe4-session and xfsettingsd

I got a feeling its something to do with GNOME 3.8 stuff (many ppl having issues looking at the forums)? I seem to have similar errors, but with GNOME. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=161900. Maybe the errors originate from some GNOME/GTK stuff XFCE uses? OR does it? I am using KDE for now. I know LXDE works too

Re: XFCE4.1 : reboot causes segfault in xcfe4-session and xfsettingsd

I have similar problem when I shutdown my computer. It happens periodically.

dmesg output:

[18379.253338] xfce4-session[430]: segfault at ffffffff00000000 ip 00007f2edd8a4537 sp 00007fff4cb57a30 error 4 in libglib-2.0.so.0.3600.1[7f2edd841000+fc000]

I have glib2 2.36.1-1 installed on my computer.

Re: XFCE4.1 : reboot causes segfault in xcfe4-session and xfsettingsd

But something's different in my case: slim restarts when XFCE segfaults. And some icons disappear. And it not only happens at shutdown, it happens all the f*ing time randomly (mostly when I click "too much" on the UI). Sometimes it just kills some taskbar tasks (fusion icon, clementine music player, etc.) I simply can't figure out, what gone wrong

Re: XFCE4.1 : reboot causes segfault in xcfe4-session and xfsettingsd

The crash is reproducible by launching Chromium, followed by xfce4-terminal immediately after XFCE4 desktop is launched. I have just upgraded glib2 to version 2.36.1-3. The bug seems to be gone. I will continue to monitor it for for the next few days.

Can anyone confirm if this segfault issue has been fixed in glib2 version 2.36.1-3?

It's a bug...
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/34892

I dumped the fusion-icon - for the time being anyway, and am using compton instead of compiz (see bug report for more info).

The segfault still occurs, even after upgrading to glib2 version 2.36.1-3

Re: XFCE4.1 : reboot causes segfault in xcfe4-session and xfsettingsd

Have @tybo upgraded xfce4-session to version 4.10.0-7? It should have fixed the problem.
