time-admin crashes on time field edit.

Bug #56590 reported by Micah Cowan on 2006-08-16
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

This is on edgy, with brand new version 2.15.2-0ubuntu3.

Previously, editing this field simply failed to work... now, attempting to edit the field crashes (the bug report dialog comes up).

Simply select the contents of the minutes field and retype it; or backspace over the current contents and type a new value. After a couple seconds, the bug-report dialog comes up for the crashed time-admin.

Seems to be assertion failure (at least when run by hand from terminal):

Here's the full stderr output:

/usr/share/themes/IndustrialTango/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:29: error: invalid identifier `xthickness', expected valid identifier
10614: arguments to dbus_message_iter_init() were incorrect, assertion "message != NULL" failed in file dbus-message.c line 1442.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-BUS library.

Thanks for your bug. How do you start time-admin? The new version should not be started with sudo. Does it happen if you start it with your user? Could you get a backtrace with gdb?
- gdb time-admin
(gdb) run
... crash
(gdb) thread apply all bt
