[network-admin] freezes when autodetecting internal winmodem

Bug #23997 reported by Dean Michael Berris on 2005-10-15
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

In the network-manager (network settings) dialog, I was surprised to see that
there is an entry for a modem (which my ECS Desknote A530 has) -- but it's a
winmodem. I then tried to configure the modem, and tried to autodetect it using
the Properties dialog for the modem entry. After canceling the dialog after a
while of waiting, the network settings dialog remains busy and I cannot do
anything with it (everything is greyed out, seems to be waiting for something).

To reproduce, on a laptop with an internal winmodem, check to see if the network
settings dialog shows an entry for a modem connection. If so, select it and then
click on Properties. Click on the option to autodetect the device. Application
becomes unresponsive and busy.

Thanks for your bug. What version of Ubuntu do you use? What do you call "autodetect it"? Do you still have the issue? Could you get a backtrace of the hang using gdb? When the tools hang, run "sudo gdb -p $(pidof network-admin)" for a command line and "thread apply all bt" and copy that to a comment
