Description John Wells 2002-11-18 05:03:15 UTC

Description of problem:
I'm am experiencing a disturbing number of gnome-panel lockups under Bluecurve.
 The main panel (and any other panels I've created) simply quits responding to
user input and locks up (no animations, including tool tips, mouse-over
highlights, etc.).  All applets stop responding as well, with the exception of
the System Monitor applet, which continues to draw itself (but won't accept
input).  I can continue to use any windows I have open just fine.  If I switch
to a term and kill gnome-panel, the panels regenerate and all mouse-over
animations work again, as well as the desktop switcher, until I click a launcher
or menu, and then the whole panel(s) go back into the locked state.  This occurs
at least 4 times a day, and the only way to resolve it is to kill the
gnome-session and restart.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Bluecurve/Gnome
2.Continue with normal use
3.Pull hair out when it happens, cause nothing will fix it save a gnome-session

Actual Results:  Gnome-panel complete lockup.

Expected Results:  Gnome-panel should not lockup.

Which applets are you using?

Can you attach to gnome-panel with gdb while it's locked up, do:
"gdb /usr/bin/gnome-panel <panel PID>"

then type "backtrace" and paste the output here?

Comment 2 John Wells 2002-11-19 05:17:32 UTC
I'm using the following applets: system monitor, email checker (?), date/time,
volume, rhn.

Here's the backtrace:

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-11-19 07:08:55 UTC
It's apparently stuck trying to play a sound indicating you clicked 
a menu item.

If you go to Preferences->Sound and turn all that stuff off, it may 
be a workaround.

It may be worth checking ~/.xsession-errors for any messages about "esd" or
"esound" or sound in general, checking permissions on /dev/dsp, and/or 
getting a backtrace from the sound daemon (esd) during the lock.
