crash on selecting long text on the right pane.

Bug #1573553 reported by Péter Sümegi
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

To reproduce:
1. Open BleachBit
2. Select many cleaner (to produce a long list)
3. Click to the beginning of the text, scroll down with the scroll bar, [Shift]+click to the end of the text
    (Alternatively: right click to the text - > select all
4. The application will crash immediate.

When starting bleachbit from the terminal, the crash produces this message:

The program 'bleachbit' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 16528 error_code 3 request_code 18 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

I just tried this with 53,958 files on Ubuntu 15.10 and gtk 2.24.28, but it did not crash. Then I pasted into gedit and confirmed the lines were all there.

Did you have more files than 53K?

Would you please test with another GTK version 2 application on your system? The following is a list of some GTK applications, though some use GTK 3 now

If it helps, I can provide you a test file with many lines to load into a GTK text editor.
