Bug Description

Binary package hint: inkscape

It happened in Lucid as well, now running Maverick, when apps using Java are running, like Netbeans, or Open Office. Now it seems to happen after Inkscape is running for a while (about half an hour). It was reported to be connected to copy/paste tools, but I have none running, to my knowledge.

Hi bartje,

Thanks for reporting this bug. Does this bug seem to just happen at random? Surely, it only happens if have you tried to export your work as an XCF file? Could this be a duplicate of bug #650890?

If not related to actually exporting to XCF, referring to bug #418242 in Inkscape: “Incorrect call to output plugins (with persistent error message) on copy” (triggered when copy&pasting objects or text in Inkscape while a clipboard monitoring application is running in the background):
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/418242>

Earlier description in the comments to bug #494472 “Opened and closed outlook. On closing Python window appeared and on retuning to inkscape I received an error message”, a similar error - which has never been confirmed though and reported for the Windows port.

But bug #565296 would not explain «Now it seems to happen after Inkscape is running for a while (about half an hour).», i.e. what triggers the output extension to be called without actually exporting to XCF.

@bartje - Does it happen after you export to XCF, or is your work totally unrelated to this format?

@~suv - What if: a valid file is saved as XCF; an "invalid" portion of code is pasted to the canvas; the file is autosaved after a while.
Ok, the extension must be loaded first, and autosave activated, but why not...

It happens completely at random, suddenly out of the blue, but always when
inkscape is not in focus, I mean, when working in a different application,
like netbeans, or while checking email, typing text in open office.
Suddenly the error warning pops up, followed by the export to image menu.

I can't replicate it now, because I've switched back to lucid, and it
hasn't occurred yet because I simply don't have work for inkscape right now.

I'm sorry I can't give more details, I hope it helps a bit though.

grtz,
Bart

Netbeans might have something to do with this. I found that it triggers bug #418242 (traceback below)

Shall we mark as duplicate?

@Alex - yes, either marking as duplicate or at least adding a comment to bug #418242 that netbeans triggers a similar bug - not when copying text in inkscape but when inkscape is not in focus (if you can confirm this).
