kmail-3.5.10 crashes
 
hi,

anyone else experiencing crashes when hitting 'New Mail' or Send Mail Button?

I have this problem now for a while, and was too lazy to look into it, but
always when i try to create or send a new mail it crashes...

System is up2date... did anything change in the kmail-related stuff?

greetings,
strowi

kmail-3.5.10 crashes
 
Hello,

I'm not using kmail, but can reproduce. Actually I've hit this before,
when I wanted to try some stuff in kmail, but have no idea why this
happens. I remember the problem was in some section working with
variables that I wasn't able to track their origin (who and when
created the objects). Patches are welcome.

kmail-3.5.10 crashes
 
Just a me-too message. I recently started having these crashes as well. They started about when I upgraded to libpng1.4.

kmail-3.5.10 crashes
 
Hello,

I've been experiencing these crashes long before libpng1.4 (at least I
think so, I haven't really been using kmail for years), but could you
try downgrading to libpng1.2 just to see what happens?

I guess noone really knows why is kmail crashing, but I would like it resolved.

Ugh. Sounds like you still have the earlier version, and some library
using it, while another pulls in the new version, with both used by kmail,
so it's pulling in both versions into the same executable, and that's a
certain recipe for disaster, or at least crashes.

I take it you've completed a revdep-rebuild and running it now comes up
clean? Do you run with as-needed in your ldflags? That will certainly
help, as will having lafilefixer in your portage post-install hooked
routines. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, you may want to read
up on flameeyes' blog... the mentioned tricks can definitely save you a
**LOT** of trouble.)

What about depclean? Do you use it regularly?

If you're not doing that sort of stuff routinely, it may be that a
complete emerge --emptytree world is needed to get the cruft cleaned out,
but before you go to that trouble, I'd suggest setting up as-needed in
your ldflags, lafilefixer in your post-install, doing a --depclean --
pretend and adding to world what you don't want removed, and consider
setting FEATURES=buildpkg, before you do the rebuild, so that when you're
done, you'll have the full world built cleanly with those options, and
binpkg backups for every package, as well. After that it should be MUCH
easier to keep up with routine maintenance, always doing a revdep-rebuild
and a depclean (I always use ask, to see what it's going to do, before
letting it go ahead, for both of these), after every update or package
removal.

Do none of these kmail crashes produce a crash dump or backtrace? If
it is the png issue, it's pretty easy to spot from a crash dump in my
experience.

kmail-3.5.10 crashes
 
I don't think I had any traces of libpng1.2. I followed these steps for updating my libpng.

http://blog.flameeyes.eu/2010/06/29/stable-users-libpng-update

So I had no traces of the old version. I haven't been using --as-needed.

I depclean and revdep after every update, I have buildpackage in my features. My machine is already doing it's revdep back to 1.2. Hopefully it will be done when I get back in to work tomorrow. I'll let you know if that helps.

kmail-3.5.10 crashes
 
Ok, pulled back to libpng1.2, and still have the crashed. Must have been a case of post hoc ergo proptor hoc. Before I rebuild again to get back to libpng1.4. How should I set my cflags and useflags to allow for debugging this?

I fixed this disabling DCOP interface for composer window. Maybe someone can
dig deeper to figure out what happens actually. I'm not sure if the problem
is in kmail or in dcop.
