    Gedit crash

    After having issues with gedit crashing on me, I modified the menu item in fluxbox to include automatic logging of gedit sessions. Attached below is one such report where it crashes. At the time, I was looking at a terminal window in front of the gedit session (last command at the time was a cd command followed by ls), when gedit disappeared from under it, crashing.

    Load averages are1.41, 0.96, 0.62

    uname -a
    Code:
    Linux ubuntu-basement 3.5.0-21-generic #32-Ubuntu SMP Tue Dec 11 18:52:46 UTC 2012 i686 athlon i686 GNU/Linux
    free -m
    Code:
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:          2903       1645       1257          0        224        573

    Swap:         4095          0       4095
    CPU hovers at ~30% all the time, though likely as I have the following applications open:
    (conky on desktop, fluxbox window manager):
    thunderbird (one email account, 20k emails, multiple news feeds)
    pidgin (1 connected accounts)
    firefox (4 tabs average)
    gedit (4 files, all under 1k lines)
    terminal (3 tabs)

    Average CPU usage when none of the applications (except conky) are open is about 5%

    Only thing that I could think of is that gedit had been open for 10 hours (current time is 8PM, launched at 10AM), however other times it has crashed being open for less than an hour. The error message at the end, upon a google search, has revealed nothing.

    Applicable part of log when gedit crashes:
    Code:
    Launching gedit on 01-04-13 at 10:07:01

    Bump. Gedit is still occasionally crashing, attached are some more logs.

    Code:
    Launching gedit on 02-07-13 at 15:43:59

    Any ideas as to what is causing this? The logs don't seem to reveal anything.

    Side note, it seems to happen more when I am switching between applications (specifically gedit and the terminal), or when switching tabs in gedit (Alt+<number>).

    As like before, I have plenty of RAM available and CPU does not spike; gedit is perfectly responsive; it just crashes/disappears immediately. ps aux | grep gedit reveals that gedit is not running after such a crash, and launching it again is just fine. Also, these past two times have been without any other applications open, just gedit and the terminal.

    Excerpt from ~/.xsession-errors:
    Code:
    /usr/local/bin/gedit.sh: line 11:  4194 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) bash -c /usr/bin/gedit >> $HOME/.logs/gedit/log.$date.txt 2>&1
    /usr/local/bin/gedit.sh: line 11:  4213 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) bash -c /usr/bin/gedit >> $HOME/.logs/gedit/log.$date.txt 2>&1
    It appears gedit is segfaulting... ...but why?

    Thanks,

    Bump. Again applied updates today, still no resolution, though Gedit did not get updated.

    Re: Gedit crash

    Why not send a crash report using Apport?
