Backtrace when running mythtv-setup over X

Hi

I'm using mythtv 0.24-fixes.

When I try and run mythtv-setup remotely (via ssh -X), it fails to
execute. Upon further investigation it seems that mythtv-setup.real
crashes with a memory corruption error and produces the following backtrace.

This is perfectly repeatable. I don't mistrust the hardware as
everything else is running just fine. I can also run mythtv-setup
without problems locally on the backend rather than via X.

Any idea what might be wrong? Any further info I can provide?

Thanks, Jan

We'd need a real backtrace, as described at
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Debugging to find out.

Also, please make sure you're using the Qt Theme Painter. If you use a
frontend on that system and want it to use OpenGL painter, you can pass
a one-time override with: -O ThemePainter=qt

Thank you, I have filed a bug in the way suggested there:

The problem occurs both with and without the above parameter.

Looking at the back trace, all the calls are occurring far below MythTV
code--specifically in Qt's X support code. But, as the glibc
"abbreviated" backtrace said, it's in a call for memory allocation,
requested by libxi (XInput support).

I'd guess (but this isn't much more than a guess) that the problem is
either with your X (and/or libxi) or is potentially caused by the X
configuration (and X doesn't handle/protect against the invalid config).

Thanks for looking at it Mike.

I don't want to waste anyone's time with a local issue. I can walk down
a flight of stairs to the garage to do my mythtv-setup work. But I also
want to help fix this problem for others if it is fixable.

The X server is a laptop running 32-bit Ubuntu 12.04. I have no problems
running other X applications with this X client / X server combination.

I don't know which other applications I could test that use qt. I tried
mythfrontend and, sure enough, it has the same problem as mythtv-setup.

I'm happy to drop this if you are; if not what should I do next?

Thanks, Jan
