Re: [orca-list] orca makes qt5 applications extremely unstable (or maybe at-spi ?)

Peter Vágner a écrit :

I have also noticed QT5 based packages crashing a lot.

Now if I am seeing the discussion in context I am starting to wonder whether this might have something to do with the recent flat review changes.

I can reproduce a crash with transmission-qt

- Make sure orca is running

- launch transmission-qt

- Once the main window is showing press ctrl+o to bring up the open file dialog.

Results: Booom, transmission-qt exits with a segmentation fault.

Dear Tyna,

On Debian 8 and Debian 9, both QT 5.3.2 or 5.7.1 and AT-SPI 2.14.0 or 2.22.0 with Orca 3.22 or from GIT we experience segfault on the new Virtualbox 5.1 based on QT5.

If Orca is disabled the problem doesn't appear even if I have the screen magnifier (Compiz/EZoom) enabled that tracks AT-SPI events.

Best regards.

Hi again,
yes, that virtualbox issue is certainly annoying and pretty much hard to debug since the community is so arrogantly sure of itself that their app is stable. I tried to mention the issue on their IRC and I was pointedly ignored, I find it quite bad.
