Bug Description

When I open an image, and without zooming, try to drag to any direction (which is ofcourse, by mistake), eog closes and a black screen appears that says lightdm is starting, and lands me in login screen.

One instance of logging the event is described below.

executing the following command produces the given output:

                   eog ~/Compiler_Design/image.jpg --g-fatal-warnings 2>~/out.txt

output file contains
                  (eog:3899): Gdk-WARNING **: eog: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.

also, /var/crash/ got two new crash files:
