URxvt daemon crashes

Several months ago, I stopped using URxvt in daemon mode after it began crashing regularly. I believe the crashing is related to me changing my keyboard layout. Here's my keyboard.conf:

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier	"Keyboard Defaults"
	MatchIsKeyboard	"yes"
	Option "XkbLayout"	"us, gr"
	Option "XkbVariant"	", polytonic"
	Option "XkbOptions"	"grp:shifts_toggle"
EndSection

I often switch between the default us keyboard layout and a polytonic Greek one. When running one or more instances or urxvtc, switching keyboard layouts (by pressing both shift keys) and then closing all instances of urxvtc **sometimes** causes urxvtd to crash. Moreover, urxvtd, upon crashing, usually spits out one of the following two error messages:

*** Error in `urxvtd': malloc(): smallbin double linked list corrupted: 0x0000000001d692b0 ***

and

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Less commonly, urxvtd will crash before I close all instances of urxvtc and give me more detailed errors, such as:

*** Error in `urxvtd': free(): invalid size: 0x0000000001d79530 ***

This is very annoying to say the least. Can anyone make a suggestion?

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

I am in the exact same situation as you are. A few months ago urxvtd also started crashing on me randomly after closing the clients. I noticed that typing exit would make it crash less than my usual method which is issuing CTRL-D. Or maybe that was just placebo. Anyway I didn't bother to dwelve into the problem much because of all the transition to systemd going on and dismissed the issue as probably something I did wrong that ended up affecting urxvtd.

A few days ago I did a clean install of Arch and urxvt was one of the first things I installed and set up and yet the daemon still crashes randomly with the same error upon closing the clients. After reading your post it hit me that I also changed my keyboard layout, though I haven't had the time yet to test this.

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

I'm glad you found my post. I'm happy to say that, since my original post, although I never strictly identified the cause of the problem on my machine, I have resolved it completely, and I may be able to help you.

First, I have two questions for you:

1. Which window manager do you use?
2. How/where/when do you invoke urxvtd?

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

I use Openbox and invoke urxvtd in it's autostart script as follows

# Set keyboard repeat rate back to tty speed
xset r rate 200 25 &

# Start the urxvt daemon forked to background
urxvtd -q -f -o

# Ready up thunar
thunar --daemon &

# Set the background image (on all displays, independently)
imlibsetroot -x e -s f $HOME/.background.png

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

That's puzzling. I was hoping you'd say something else.

Let me ask you one more question: How to you launch urxvtc? Do you have it bound to a key? If so, which program is doing the binding?

Let me tell you about my configuration and what I had to change. I was using Awesome and had urxvtc bound to Mod4+Return (how I invoked urxvtd didn't seem to matter) via Awesome's configuration file. One thing I did to attempt to fix the problem was write a custom script that would check to see if urxvtd was running and start a new server if not:

#!/bin/sh
urxvtc "$@"
if [ $? -eq 2 ]; then
  urxvtd -q -o -f
  exec urxvtc-custom "$@"
fi

However, this didn't work, since when urxvtd crashed, urxvtc invocations would NEVER exit unless killed.

So one day, I switched to dwm and did my key binding through dwm's interface, which is basically just editing the C source. And since then, the server has never crashed. I admit that I don't know precisely what did it, but I'm confident it has been fixed, since before, I could more or less make the thing crash at will. So my suggestion to you is, if you're invoking urxvtc through a keyboard shortcut, try using a different program to do the keybinding. Check out the xbindkeys package, and see if that works for you.

Edit: I recant what I said in this post. Though it seems the window manager may have an effect, switching to dwm did not strictly fix this problem.

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

I'm using openbox, and launching urxvtd via it's autostart script with the following entry:

urxvtd &

I'm also launching urxvtc by using a keyboard shortcut defined in rc.xml:

    <keybind key="W-r">
      <action name="execute">
        <execute>urxvtc</execute>
      </action>
    </keybind>

No problems here. Do you need the urxvtd arguments (I've never found a use for them), or are you just using them because they're an example in the man page? Could you try running the daemon without them (just append an ampersand and let the shell background the daemon) and see if that changes anything?

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

Indeed I am using those arguments because I read the man page and saw/see no reason to go against the developers when they provide options and mechanisms to fork their programs to the background. Will try backgrounding using & and report back.

As for my key bindings and per application settings in rc.xml

    <keybind key="W-t">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>urxvtc</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-p">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>urxvtc -name ncmpcpp -e ncmpcpp</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-h">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>urxvtc -name htop -e htop</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-n">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>urxvtc -name wicd -e wicd-curses</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-r">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>urxvtc -name rtorrent -e rtorrent</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
    ...
    <application class="URxvt">
      <decor>no</decor>
    </application>

these are all I have set regarding URxvt although the ones I use pretty much all the time are obviously the terminal itself and the ncmpcpp player.

For the sake of completeness this is my URxvt related menu.xml

<menu id="apps-term-menu" label="Terminals">
  <item label="Urxvt">
    <action name="Execute">
      <command>urxvtc</command>
    </action>
  </item>
 </menu>

EDIT

Reporting back, using & or passing the -q -f -o arguments proved to be irrelevant -- the crashes still happened.

So I started thinking about my terminal related files, from .bash_profile and .bashrc to .Xresources, all of which are full of tweaks. Through a series of enabling/disabling I've managed to narrow it down to .Xresources and the real culprits in my case

URxvt.font: xft:Inconsolata:medium:size=12
URxvt.boldFont: xft:Inconsolata:bold:size=12

Disabling those lines stops the crashes and brings me to the obvious question: why? I am open to suggestions because unless that is not the correct syntax I have no idea why my faithful Inconsolata font is wreaking so much havok in my terminal.

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

I have the exact same crash with urxvtd. Googling got me to this gentoo bug report: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=435732

Since I rebuilt media-libs/freetype without the 'infinality' USE flag, and depcleaned the infinality packages, I've been unable to reproduce the error.

Is everyone else experiencing this bug on Arch also using infinality?

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

The 'doubly linked list corrupted' was the exact same error I was getting before my Arch reinstall. Not any more though, just a pure urxvtd segfault.

Following the line of thought of my previous post I experimented a bit more and realized it wasn't just Inconsolata that was causing/contributing to my crashes -- in fact any xft font would do it. That led me to think it was something related to xft fonts, and the only font-related things I recall installing/configuring were the google webfonts and the infinality patches for font rendering. Discarded the former as using base fonts also ended in crashing. That leaves infinality although I really haven't had the time to test it yet. Glad to see someone pointing fingers at it.

After reading the rest of that guy's post, he seems to have settled on a pretty firm cause-effect conclusion based on what could easily have been an anecdotal coincidence..
"it hasn't crashed since I removed infinality" => "in my case, it was infinality"

Anyway, all I can say is that I do use infinality with urxvtd, but I don't experience this bug.

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

I'm also experiencing these crashes. It's mostly random; when I close a terminal window sometimes the urxvt daemon crashes with a segfault and all terminal windows (clients) will hang. It's annoying as I use many terminal based applications.

I also have the Infinality patch installed so I'll try going without it, thanks for that tip. I also experience this bug with Debian Wheezy (also with Infinality patches).

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

Hi,

do you still have this Problem? Since recently I experience a Problem with rxvt-unicode, too. I am not using it in daemon mode, but with independent instances. Or at least I was, since until recently I get this error starting urxvt:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

If invoking "gdb urxvt" I can see:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

So this is somehow related to the perl part of urxvt. Is it related? I am to tired to invetigate further. Maybe tomorrow.

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

Ok,

pacman -Rn perl-scalar-list-utils

resolved the problem. But of course, this does not tell us, if these Problems are related... .

I am still having the problem, but I don't think yours is related. A new version of perl (5.18) was released a couple of weeks ago, and it makes sense that you would see the error you saw before recompiling some of the C code being called by libperl.

Edit: Or in your case, it looks like you just removed some Perl module, which had the effect of invoking the one that comes with perl.

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

Did you come to any solution? I experience the same with any xft font.

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

This problem might be related to xinput protocol: http://lists.schmorp.de/pipermail/rxvt- … 01177.html
I stopped ibus-daemon after urxvtd froze, and urxvt clients worked again normally. After that it ignored ibus completely.

The problem is due to a memory bug in the infinality patch for freetype2. The infinality dev is aware of the problem and originally seemed very intent on fixing it, but nothing has happened since I alerted him to the problem a couple of months ago. See: http://www.infinality.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=324

For now, I just don't use rxvt-unicode's daemon.

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

@nbtrap

At the moment I am using rxvt-unicode-patched from AUR and for whatever reasons it is running with any crashes so far.

Give it a try!

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

After testing rxvt-unicode-patched I must admit that it still crashes, though maybe slightly less often. But that is just a subjective observation.

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

Urxvt is my default terminal emulator and it has been working perfectly well. I use it with a TTF font and do not experience any crashes. I build Urxvt on my own, with font-width-fix.patch and slightly simplified, with a few options disabled (here is the src package: rxvt-unicode). Relevant bits from my current Xresources:

! --- Urxvt
URxvt*geometry:           88x54
URxvt*cursorBlink:        1
URxvt*cursorUnderline:    0
URxvt*urgentOnBell:       true
URxvt*letterSpace:        -0.2
URxvt*internalBorder:     2
URxvt*scrollBar:          false
URxvt.transparent:        false
URxvt.font:xft:MonacoPX:Regular:pixelsize=12:antialias=false:hinting=false:autohint=false

! --- clickable links, etc.
URxvt.perl-ext-common:     default,url-select,matcher
URxvt.keysym.M-u:          perl:url-select:select_next
URxvt.url-select.launcher: dwb
URxvt.underlineURLs:       false
URxvt.matcher.button:      1
URxvt.matcher.rend.0:      fg33 bg1

! --- Xft settings
Xft.dpi:       96
Xft.antialias: 1
Xft.rgba:      rgb
Xft.autohint:  0
Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault
Xft.hinting:   1
Xft.hintstyle: hintfull

Other font families from a popular Arch repertoire tested and working properly:

URxvt.font:xft:Droid Sans Mono:style=Regular:pixelsize=13
URxvt.font:xft:DejaVu Sans Mono:style=Book:pixelsize=13
URxvt.font:xft:Liberation Mono:style=Regular:pixelsize=13
URxvt.font:xft:Cousine:style=Regular:pixelsize=13
URxvt.font:xft:Inconsolata-zi4:style=Medium:pixelsize=15

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

Same issue here, using infinality.

The best way I've found to quickly reproduce this is by binding keys to launch urxvtc and close windows quickly (if you use awesome wm, for example, you might already have this). Use the keybindings to launch several urxvtc windows, then close a bunch of them just as quickly and try to launch a few more immediately after.

Switching back to the standard freetype2 and fontconfig resolved the crashes, but the effects on my eyes were more than I could bear (never thought I'd gripe so much about font rendering until this moment). So I switched back.

Switching my URxvt.font to a bitmap font also significantly reduced the crashes, so that's what I'm using now. I do still see occasional crashes (which I'm unable to reproduce) when I close *all* of the client terminals, but this is much better than the daemon crashing while I still have things open.

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

@drelyn86

I cannot reproduce this. But now I am testing bohoomil's sources and this seem to be a lot better now.

Thanks bohoomil! I will further investigate if the issue is completely gone.

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

I kept having crashes and thus I looked more detailed at the differences between bohoomil's font and xft and my own settings. The only noticeably difference is the following:

- URxvt*font: xft:Liberation Mono:style=Regular:size=12:antialias=true:hinting=true
+ URxvt*font:xft:Liberation Mono:Regular:pixelsize=12:antialias=false:hinting=false:autohint=false

This change together with bohoomil's source package does no longer cause the daemon to crash!

My .Xresources for reference:

! --[ Font Rendering ]-------------------------------------
Xft.dpi:       96
Xft.antialias: 1
Xft.rgba:      rgb
Xft.autohint:  0

Xft.hintstyle: hintfull

Re: URxvt daemon crashes

I switched machines. Previously (when I was experiencing the crashes) I was using nvidia. Now, I am using xf86-video-intel. So far, I haven't seen any crashes at all.
