Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.3)
Installed from: Fedora RPMs
When trying to add files from a remote project (via SSH or FTP) and there is a symbolic link that lead to the same directory, quanta open tens of windows and then crashes, usually taking KDE with it.
Here is how to reproduce:
On the server:
# cd /home/user1
# ln -s symlink ./
Now add a project on the client using SSH as protocol in the server settings and try to rescan the project folder.
This causes quanta to recursively scan the same folder until it crashes.
Can you provide a backtrace?
It never get to create the backtrace. Just tens of windows open and then the system hangs. The maximum i could do is CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE right when it start.
reproducing this bug is very easy - just scan a directory that contain symlink to itself.
Instead of hitting Ctrl-Alt-Backspace you could send the Quanta process a signal instead:
kill -SEGV `pidof quanta`
So make sure that line is at hand as soon as you reproduce.
It does not crash, but I can see increased memory and network usage. It repeatedly asks for my credentials and doesn't seem to stop with asking.
Fixed for 3.5.8.
