    [gnome shell] multiple crashes when closing window

    hi,

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...l/+bug/1094571

    does not seem to get a lot of comments.
    By the way this bug is the only one for me which makes me crazy.

    Anyone has investigated more ? Does a workaround exist, before an official one ?

    Thanks !

    I've several 'workarounds' for you, ranging from 100% to 99% to looking good effective.

    100% - stop using ubuntu's gnome-shell till fixed, inadvertently or otherwise. (likely the former, this is the workaround I've chosen

    99% - replace the login gnome-shell with one running in a terminal, works quite well though has obvious slight downside. Can be done thru a delayed start up script

    looking good - use Fedora 18 - I think it's using 3.6.2 or .3, no sign of this on a live session though a live session isn't conclusive

    Otherwise keep updating, maybe it'll go away..

    It's possible that the GS issue is the same as seen here -

    (I believe these issues would be only or more likely seen on 64 bit

    This relation between Pulseaudio and closing windows exceeds by far my field of understanding. Was not a link I could have in mind !!

    Well - went ahead & re-built eglibc removing the old related patches & applying the upstream diff.
    So far no hangs in Gs when closing windows & no unresponsive totem or on occasion audacious.

    Because a local debian package build of eglibc is a total pita can't quite say this will be fixed with a new libc6 ect. upgrade down the road but it looks promising.

    It does seem to be the case crashes and stall on my 64 bit setup but works just fine on my 32 bit ! go figure

    could you share your patched eglibc so i can have a look and test
    cheers

    I don't particulary 'trust' the build for some various reasons - short explain
    Somehow in lauchpad an amd64 build only builds to 'I believe' build-tree/amd64-libc. In this case it built 2 others as seen in screen 1 which greatly extended the build time & complexity. (90 - 120 min. to the initial fail

    Additionally the patch added a test(s) (there are thousands), some of which are expected to fail hence there is a whole dir., (screen shows some), of 'expected-results*' which contain a list of expected fails. So there where some new unlisted fails which I had to add to the appropriate list, re-build & check, then fix the next fail, ect..

    To save alot of time I switched from dpkg-buildpackage to a fakeroot build which allows adjusting & then continuing current build from last successful entrant. (advisable method - unlikely

    If inclined I'll make libc6 & libc-bin available thru some means other than here - probably only need the libc6 package - ck pm.
    I put in a fresh install to 1st. ck. (built on this install), worked fine for the purpose of checking & noticed no ill effects, am going to install on my 'using' install to see also.
    (to go back to current just mark for upgrade in synaptic as I built as same current version.

    Code:
    eglibc (2.17-0ubuntu1) raring; urgency=low
    
      * This upstream merge fixes a nasty hang in pulseaudio (LP: #1085342)
    So : do you still experience hangs of gnome-shell ? I'll try to close all my windows. Let's be crazy !
