Resizing window on boot sends SIGABRT

Post by brenchen »

Basically, if I resize/move the UI straight after running StarTools-Linux64 (i.e. in the load screen), the program crashes (SIGABRT).

This is run under Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. From terminal, run ./StarTools-Linux64
  2. As soon as the load screen comes up, drag the top bar of StarTools and let go
  3. Program should exit with SIGABRT
I ran it through gdb, here's the backtrace:

Code: Select all

(gdb) bt

#9  0x0000000000583972 in ?? ()

But as I try to run strace on it but wasn't able to reproduce the problem. I can supply the full gdb log if needed.

Love to confirm this is a bug or is it something I'm doing? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Thank you for reporting this.
What version of StarTools is this? Does this happen in the 1.4.x versions?
I'm unable to reproduce this on a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04.05LTS, nor on Linux Mint 17.3.

Thanks!

Thanks! Really odd. I've been keeping an eye out for this, but I'm just unable to replicate this. Valgrind doesn't show me anything out of the ordinary either. :think:
