Description Robin Green 2007-04-05 15:15:08 UTC
Description of problem:
rssowl hangs after you close the main window. It looks like it is not managing
to save its prefs (they used to be in files called .rssowl/user.xml and

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove $HOME/.rssowl directory
2. Start rssowl
3. File->Quit
Actual results:
shell prompt does not reappear

Expected results:
shell prompt should reappear

Additional info:
I can't debug this with gdb. If I press CTRL+C in gdb when it hangs, I get an
unhelpful stacktrace:

Reading in symbols for pthread_mutex_unlock.c...done.
#0  0x00002aaaab1ab0d6 in *__GI___poll (fds=0x2aab007195c0, nfds=7, timeout=-1)

and gdb has an internal error if I then try to do "info threads".

RSSOwl is no longer part of Fedora due to dependency licensing problems.  I'm
closing this with WONTFIX.
