Description Kjartan Maraas 1999-04-14 11:31:11 UTC
Here is a way to freeze gmc, and X. I have to do
or go to a console and kill gmc to get things going again.

The mouse is a MS-intellimouse if that matters.

- right-click the background
- click the "new" area of the dialog many times with left,
  and both buttons at the same time.

Start over until in the end gmc freezes.

After doing ctrl-alt-backspace there was a nice core-file
sitting in
the lower left corner. This is from gdb:

I just confirmed this after upgrading to 5.9.9. It feels as if it's
harder to trigger, but after clicking away for a while at the
background and the dialog that pops up after right-clicking the
background, it freezes.
