GNOME Showstoppers.

here we go with the list of bugs that should be fixed for GNOME 2.22.
everybody feel free to reproduce, test, or help out!
(for more information on showstopper reviews in general, see [2].)

additionally, as we will get into more freezes[1], developers or
contributors may want to query gnome bugzilla for reports with the
keyword "STACKTRACE" set to find and fix useful crasher reports.

(and if you, dear module maintainer, haven't updated the GNOME roadmap
at with your latest module features, do
it! now!)


=> prompt service + tabs fix
accoding to chpe this is a must-fix for any release supporting xulrunner
1.9, so to be on the safe side this should get done for 2.22.

=> crash in camel_certdb_save at camel-certdb.c:371
142 dups total, 9 in the last 30 days.
Crash when writing the certificates database. This seems to be not
Fedora specific (see comment #119) and to still happen with 2.12
(comment #134), so it's not Fedora-only. Any help to reproduce this (see
comment 67 and 69 for flags) appreciated.
=> Error "Summary and folder mismatch, even after a sync"
87 dups total, 10 in the last 30 days.
Sankar works on a workaround to silently resync the folder summary,
without displaying a confusing error message to the user. this will
hopefully be included in 2.21.90.

=> crash in gtk_rc_reset_styles() [2.18 only?]
866 dups total, all of them 2.18.
Vincent said "it's really unfixable if no developer can reproduce it",
so if anybody wants to help out, please provide the relevant SElinux log
for vuntz, and the value of the gconf key /desktop/gnome/font_rendering.

=> crash trying to print [2.18 only?]
115 dups total, 6 in the last 30 days.
There has not been a single 2.20 report so far, can anybody still
reproduce this? Paolo said that they will try to migrate to gtk-print in
time for 2.22 which would obsolete this bug.

=> crash in Battery Charge Monitor: Plugging in a USB mouse [2.18 only?]
80 dups total, 11 in the last 30 days.
There has not been a single 2.20 report so far, can anybody still
reproduce this?
=> crash in Volume Control: starting skype [2.18 only?]
286 dups total, 11 in the last 30 days.
At a first glance it seems as there are only fedora7 (2.18) reports, can
anybody reproduce this with another distribution than Fedora7? Comments
168 to 172 include some useful information.

=> crash in Volume Control: changing settings [2.18 only?]
220 total, 55 in the last 30 days.
Again, according to comment 216 this might be fixed in 2.20.
Still missing a good stacktrace. Can anybody (preferably Fedora 7 users)
reproduce this and provide a good stacktrace?

=> Can't click button after setting it sensitive.
There are several reviewed and criticized patches attached. Cody
recently commented the exact state of this and what has to be still
worked out to provide the perfect(TM) patch. Help to get this in before
GNOME 2.22 appreciated.
=> File save dialog deletes/empties filename when changing directory
In gtk+'s file chooser save dialog, the file name sometimes get deleted
and must be manually entered which is quite annoying. This bug is not
easily reproducible, but Olle Bergkvist investigated, created a testcase
(comment 21) and plans to come up with a patch here.

Changes/Fixes since the last review[3]:
      * EVOLUTION-DATA-SERVER: A workaround for 348149 has been
committed to both branches recently, distro may want to backport or ship
e-d-s 1.12.3.
      * GTK+: 449371 ("Open with" menu has no effect) fixed in gtk+
      * CAIRO: 431990 (size 0 fonts cause an error in cairo) distros may
want to ship cairo 1.4.8 or backport the patch in comment 113.
