Re: [orca-list] Orca: occasional segfault

Hi Zack:

Ugh - this is no good. The python interpreter should not crash. For debugging this, I'd guess a place to start would be to build the interpreter in debug mode and start looking at stack traces. I shudder at the thought. :-(

Hi All,
Occasionally, when I'm logging in via gdm, after the "Welcome to Orca"
message, I see the following appear in my dmesg:
python[6342]: segfault at 4 ip b80248c9 sp bff0de90 error 4 in[b7f50000+11d000]
I can usually restart Orca by doing alt+f2, orca -q and then orca.  It
works fine after that.  Nevertheless this is a somewhat annoying
situation.  Is it something to do with orca version 2.26.3?  That's the
latest version available in ArchLinux currently.
Is there anything I can do to help track down the cause of this?
Best and thanks,
