Description Robin Green 2005-04-26 22:52:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-2 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
I tried to run file-roller under strace, but a child process died so it couldn't read the specified file. It opens the file fine when strace is not used.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. strace -f file-roller

Actual Results:  file-roller popped up an error dialog box "An error occurred while opening the archive". strace output shows that a child process immediately segfaults after being cloned (see strace output, attached).

Expected Results:  file-roller behaviour should be unchanged

Actually strace -f anything_that_forks seems to do it, and it appears to be a
kernel bug, see bug 156908
