Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

When playing a music file with Rhythmbox, it crashes. If I run Rhythmbox in debug mode, this is what I get (last lines, when playing a mp3 file):

(12:53:24) [0x80dc408] [tick_cb] rb-shell-player.c:3223: tick: [file:///home/martijn/Muziek/Acda%20en%20De%20Munnik%20-%20Kees.mp3, 0:253(0)]

(12:53:24) [0x80dc408] [rb_shell_clipboard_sync] rb-shell-clipboard.c:543: syncing clipboard
(12:53:24) [0xb58405e8] [bus_sync_message_cb] rb-visualizer-plugin.c:410: handling prepare-xwindow-id message
(12:53:24) [0xb58405e8] [find_xoverlay] rb-visualizer-plugin.c:386: found xoverlay in video bin
(12:53:24) [0xb58405e8] [bus_sync_message_cb] rb-visualizer-plugin.c:424: setting fake window id 52428836
The program 'rhythmbox' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 39 error_code 2 request_code 141 minor_code 13)
  (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.)

Attached are my machines hardware and the full debug info.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Please try to obtain a backtrace following the instructions at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash and upload the backtrace (as an attachment) to the bug report. This will greatly help us in tracking down your problem.

Rhythmbox works every now and then, and unfortunately ( ;-) ) it does work now. As soon as Rhythmbox stops working again, I'll make the backtrace.

It stopped working, and here is the backtrace, altough I'm afraid I did something wrong (not many information attached...)

the gdb log has no stacktrace, could you break on gdk_x_error as indicated in the error to get a stacktrace?

How to?

Sebastien Bacher (seb128) wrote :

gdb rhythmbox
(gdb) break gdk_x_error
(gdb) run
get the crash
(gdb) thread apply all bt

Hi Martijn, did you get the chance to get the stacktrace from the crash?

Thanks for your feedback

I did like Sebastien told me to, but I don't get any more information than that I already had.. any tips (I must be doing something obviously wrong)?

Sebastien Bacher (seb128) wrote :

do you have libgtk2.0-0-dbg installed? could try using "run --sync" and get a new log?

Ah! Now we're getting somewhere ;-).

the issue seems to be a gstreamer one but the stacktrace lacks debug symbols for those binaries

Martijn would it be possible for you to add dbgsys for gstreamer and get a new stacktrace?

the bug doesn't seem to really match the bug watch one. Is that still an issue in lucid?
