A crash with latest ruby/ruby-gnome

Dear Kou and other readers,

today, after updating another machine to latest Ruby/Ruby-gnome, I
found that I received a crash with (I believe) every signal being
processed. I attach a simple test program which, on my machine,
triggers a crash when the ‘test’ button is pressed. If the
btn.signal_connect call is commented out, no crash happens.

I attach the output of the crash. As you can see, it is triggered by
Ruby, from thread.c, function rb_thread_call_with_gvl. It appears that
it has been “called by a thread which has GVL”, because the ‘blocking
region buffer’ is null. For me, these are unknown waters.

Experimentally I tried to comment out the rb_bug line in
rb_thread_call_with_gvl. The app does not crash, but becomes
non-responsive.

Does this tell you anything?

Carlo

Thanks for your report!
The attached sample program was very helpful.

I’ve fixed it but there is interrupt isn’t handled
problem. I’ll fix it later.

If we change to rb_thread_call_without_gvl() from

rb_thread_call_without_gvl2(), it is solved. But we should

consider about the solution is valid solution.

Thanks,

kou

Indeed: the program I am developing runs again, but does not stop with
Ctrl-C.

This stuff must be quite hairy…

Thanks again!

Ctrl-C works again! :slight_smile:

Don’t take it personally :sunglasses: but it only works when only the main
window is open. If I have another modal window open, it still does not
work.

(this does not cause such a problem to me…)

Since you showed appreciation for my little test program, here is
another one. Press the button, and another window appears. At that
point, Ctrl_C still does not work. Or rather, the interrupt is
processed only when the new window’s button is pressed.

Oh…
The new test program also works well now. :slight_smile:
