Description René Genz 2014-01-29 22:19:50 UTC
Description of problem:
`gnome-control-center sharing` crashes if main switch is toggled from ON to OFF

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
control-center.x86_64   1:3.10.2-4.fc20

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F20 with default settings (GNOME); package "control-center" must be present
2. terminal: `gnome-control-center sharing`
# only SSH is enabled
3. toggle main sharing switch from ON to OFF results in crash with output in terminal

Actual results:
sharing-cc-panel:ERROR:cc-sharing-panel.c:55:_gtk_builder_get_widget: assertion failed: (w != NULL)Abort (core dumped)

Expected results:
no crash :)

Additional info:
If SSH login is disabled manually and you toggle main sharing switch from ON to OFF the crash occurs, but the switch will be in the OFF position the next time you open the sharing site.
Then you can toggle from OFF to ON and back from ON to OFF to crash with the same output.

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 10:44:19 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

bug is not present anymore in Fedora 22 x86_64 control-center-3.16.2-1.fc22.x86_64
