Description Pete Zaitcev 2007-04-17 00:21:53 UTC
Description of problem:

When input method is active, gnome-terminal often hangs, sometimes crashes.

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


How reproducible:

100% here, although not on the first key typed

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install SCIM, Anthy. If you install, just select Japanese Support,
   all packages come standard.
2. Test install, hit Ctrl-Space. Input method window should appear.
3. Bang on any letter keys. No need to enter any valid characters
   or anything. The gnome-terminal will hang 100% after about 10 keys.
Actual results:

Hang or crash.

Expected results:

No hang.

Additional info:

Unfortnately, I do not remember exactly when this started. I usually
enter Japanese into other applications, such as e-mail, Firefox.
Those application work ok.

Killing gnome-terminal with -9 clears everything, the desktop
survives the crash. SCIM survives too. That's pretty nice, although
it would be better if this were fixed.

Crash from bug-buddy

This is not very useful, because:
 - Most of the time gnome-terminal hangs rather than crashes
 - Apparently I don't have many relevant debuginfo packages

I'm just attaching this for completennes.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-04-04 00:07:11 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
