    i am using raring and found a way to crash xfce4-session and would like to know if it is fixed in saucy
    open terminal
    run
    export LC_TIME=en_DK.UTF-8
    close terminal
    open anything (terminal; Thunderbird)

    i was messing with this, looking for a better solution

    Re: anyone able to reproduce this?

    Running it on a VirtualBox, but don't have Thunderbird installed, though.

    Here are my specs:
    Code:
    lsb_release -a && uname -r
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu 13.10
    Release:    13.10
    Codename:    saucy
    3.9.0-030900rc3-generic
    Code:
    dpkg --get-selections | grep xfce4
    libxfce4ui-1-0     install
    libxfce4ui-utils    install
    libxfce4util-bin    install
    libxfce4util-common    install
    libxfce4util6     install
    xfce4-appfinder     install
    xfce4-cpugraph-plugin    install
    xfce4-dict     install
    xfce4-indicator-plugin    install
    xfce4-mailwatch-plugin    install
    xfce4-netload-plugin    install
    xfce4-notes     install
    xfce4-notes-plugin    install
    xfce4-notifyd     install
    xfce4-panel     install
    xfce4-places-plugin    install
    xfce4-power-manager    install
    xfce4-power-manager-data   install
    xfce4-power-manager-plugins   install
    xfce4-quicklauncher-plugin   install
    xfce4-screenshooter    install
    xfce4-session     install
    xfce4-settings     install
    xfce4-systemload-plugin    install
    xfce4-taskmanager    install
    xfce4-terminal     install
    xfce4-verve-plugin    install
    xfce4-volumed     install
    xfce4-weather-plugin    install
    xfce4-xkb-plugin
    Reproduce what you ask, run
    Code:
    export LC_TIME=en_DK.UTF-8
    closed the terminal and reopened it and xfce-session didn't crash.

    Can't say if it's due to some kind of a fix in Saucy or if it's due to the fact that I don't have Thunderbird installed.

    Sorry if this seems to be a stupid question, but you do have it enable, don't you?

    If the OP is using a mainline kernel then it's a non standard install and so, consequently, not supported.

    Apport will detect this and not upload a crash report.

    Thanks for the heads-up matt. Didn't knew that. We're always learning.

    Apport is enabled ? It should be but it's worth checking

    Code:
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/thunar_dbus % cat /etc/default/apport 
    # set this to 0 to disable apport, or to 1 to enable it
    # you can temporarily override this with
    # sudo service apport start force_start=1
    enabled=1
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/thunar_dbus %
    Is it running ?

    Code:
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/thunar_dbus % initctl status apport        
    apport start/running
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/thunar_dbus %

    Sorry for stepping in matt, but now you got me all confused. In post #4, I ask the OP exactly that and you said

    Please don't misread this post as being rude or arrogant, it's not that at all. It's just that now you gave me a knot in the brain.
