Bug Description

Binary package hint: mousepad

Sometimes it happens with Geany and other GTK apps. But it's the 1st time I catched the error on console.

$ sudo mousepad /etc/apt/preferences

(mousepad:23257): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_main_quit: assertion `main_loops != NULL' failed

It doesn't matter if I use sudo, gksudo or open the app as an ordinary user, by console, menu or alt+f2 shortcut. By the way, it does happen seldon (but since Ubuntu 9.04 or even before).

I can confirm that, when a clipman is running, or when I hit ctrl+c to copy some text, then clipman is very long to quit.

mousepad, of course, not clipman

Workaround until an updated xfce4-settings is available: Use parcellite instead of clipman.

Should be fixed in oneiric.

I spoke too soon about the workaround. After upgrading to Natty, I found that the problem appears even without clipman. Looks like Natty users need an updated xfce4-settings after all.

As a temporary workaround,
I'm using leafpad as the default text editor on Xubuntu 11.04.

It's pretty identical to mousepad,
but I don't get this annoying bug.
