Bug Description

Binary package hint: cheese

When running Cheese on the hildon desktop, choosing either of the two menu items Quit or About will cause the program to crash. Quit crashes with a SIGABRT, and About with a SIGSEGV (see attached debug output). Note that in the case of Quit, the error does not occur when quitting Cheese by tapping the hildon desktop "X"; in this case the program exits normally.

I'm using Cheese version 2.22.0-0ubuntu2, on a device running UME.

NOTE: This bug applies *only* to Cheese running in hildon mode. The corresponding menu items work without error when running Cheese on the desktop.

I'll attach some debug output. I haven't had a chance yet to investigate this further.

I modified the function "cheese_window_cmd_about" as following snippet code, and launching About dialog works properly.

Modify "gtk_show_about_dialog(GTK_WINDOW (cheese_window->window),....." to "gtk_show_about_dialog(NULL,....."

I verified that both the About and Quit menu items work correctly now in Hildon mode with the Cheese update in -proposed. This was verified using an Intel Menlow-based MID device (Jax10).
