Crash when clicking "Write to Disc"

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus-cd-burner

Using the same hardware, it worked perfectly with the version of nautilus that came with Dapper. I re-installed a fresh Edgy on the same machine, and now when I try to burn a DVD it crashes. I will attach the bug report that was auto-generated.

The drive can still read DVDs. I have not yet tried other burning software.

Thank you for your bug. Could you get a backtrace with libglib2.0-0-dbg libgtk2.0-0-dbg nautilus-cd-burner-dbgsym installed?

Ok, I installed libglib2.0-0-dbg libgtk2.0-0-dbg, but I couldn't find nautilus-cd-burner-dbgsym.

This is my set up. I am sourcing files from a couple different physical hard drives, and copied those files to the "CD/DVD Creator Folder" using drag and drop in gnome.

1. I closed the gui folder, and open up a terminal.
2. I ran nautilus-cd-burner from the command line
3. The "Write to Disc" dialog gui pops up. I accept the defaults:
     Write Disc To: AOPEN DUW1608/ARR
     Data Size: 4.0 GB
     Write Speed: Maximum Possible
4. I clicked 'Write"
5. I clicked "OK" on the Popup to disable microsoft file name compatibility.

then the gui hangs, on the console I get this:

*** glibc detected *** nautilus-cd-burner: free(): invalid pointer: 0x081ea970 ***

you can get the dbgsym packages from the "deb edgy main universe" apt source. That seems to be an incorrect free() call, could you run valgrind ( to get details about it after installing the dbgsym package?

Well, after installing nautilus-cd-burner-dbgsym - I don't get the crash anymore. I have burnt 3 DVDs in a row without error. Two of those burns were through valgrind if you still are interested in the logs.

I guess your development version fixes this issue. Thanks for your help!

Whoops - spoke too soon. It just crashed again on the 4th DVD. I was able to run it through valgrind to reproduce the crash. I will attach the logs.

No, things seem fine now. I haven't had that problem in a long time. I'm on fiesty now, by the way.
