What I think is going on in several bugs like this is that there are
many ways to produce a very similar traceback, because of this
`_g_log_abort` function in glib. What that basically is - I went and
looked at it - is a sort of 'special' logging function which, when
called, is intended to log a message and then terminate the app. I
think in many cases the same 3 or 4 frames appear in the trace around
the `_g_log_abort` call - in this case it's these frames that seem to
appear in all the tracebacks:
It would probably be a good idea to get some abrt/libreport and glib
folks together to figure out how abrt/libreport can handle these
`_g_log_abort` cases (and any other similar cases) better.
For now, I'll try and go through all the "dupes" of this bug and clean
So I've now gone through all the dupes, tried to sort them into groups,
and posted a little summary:
A couple of bugs cropped up several times. One is
, identified by an
attempt to allocate (exactly) 18446744072098939136 bytes. There's a
matching upstream bug report with a patch currently under review:
It'd be great to get that patch reviewed and then backport it for F27
(and F26, if relevant, I'm not 100% sure).
The other one which just kept coming up is this:
I provided some references to external reports in comment #16,
including a Freedesktop.org
Wayland issue which suggests the underlying
problem is that creating and destroying temporary global objects is
inherently racy (AIUI). I found 8 reports of that one, suggesting it
could really do with fixing.
Aside from that the most commonly encountered ones seem to be a crash
triggered by a bug in the Multi Monitors extension, and one which is
*possibly* caused by trying to run the game Kerbal Space Program. There
are also several bugs which all ultimately seem to wind up crashing due
to "Creating pipes for GWakeup: Too many open files" - like
- but that one
kinda feels like I don't have the whole story figured out yet.
Thanks for any attention you can give to these, folks!
