Bug Description

Since Ubuntu 12.04, the following zenity --list returns systematically "xargs: zenity: terminated by signal 11" error whatever the user choice.

Here is the code:
choice=$(echo $TAB | xargs zenity --list --hide-header --window-icon=/path/my_icon.png \
  --title="$my_title" --text="$Please_choose_an_item" --column="") || quit_function;

The same code works ok on 10.04, 11.04, 11.10.

Any workaround is welcome :)

Any idea about how to workaround this ?

(because of this bug, OS-Uninstaller is 100% KO in 12.04).

I found a workaround : i write the TAB chain in a text file, then use :
choice=$(cat TAB.txt | zenity --list --hide-header --window-icon=/path/my_icon.png \
  --title="$my_title" --text="$Please_choose_an_item" --column="") || quit_function;

Hope this helps.
