Bug Description

Binary package hint: computer-janitor

On a Maverick amd64 system with computer-janitor 2.0.4-0ubuntu1.1, I launched the Computer Janitor, deselected a package, was prompted for my password, and at that point decided I didn't want to perform this package removal operation just yet after all, so I cancelled rather than inputting my password. Then I clicked the X to quit the Computer Janitor. The window closed, and *then* I was informed by Apport that the Computer Janitor crashed.

This seems similar to bug 611587, but in that bug the crash occurred when packages were deselected, rather than on exit. (Also, that bug has not been reported to have been reproduced on Maverick, in spite at least one attempt to do so.) This also seems similar to bug 721244, but in that bug the crash occurred immediately after cancelling on the password dialog, and in that bug the Computer Janitor window was still open when the crash occurred, and (though the description is a big ambiguous on this point) presumably continued running even after the crash.

I've found that:

(1) Closing the Computer Janitor does not produce this crash, by itself.

(2) Click Cancel when asked for my password (after deselecting a package in the Computer Janitor) produces this crash by itself, whether or not the Computer Janitor window is closed immediately afterwards, and that the Computer Janitor window remains open and apparently functional after the crash.

Therefore, this bug is almost certainly a duplicate of bug 721244, and I'm marking it as such.
