Description Alexey Shildyakov 2009-05-11 14:42:08 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.3)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

Now randomly crash KTorrent and kded4. I don't have the backtrace for KTorrent
but have for kded4.

Service KDE (kded4) crashed and caused the signal 11 (SIGSEGV).

Comment 1 Michael Pyne 2009-06-05 01:24:55 UTC
It would be interesting to know the version of Qt in use and what the file name in question was (which may be possible to retrieve from future crashes by investigating frame 10 (KDirWatchPrivate::useINotify) in gdb to print out the filename).

Seems to me like a Qt bug though, perhaps already fixed in 4.5 (assuming you're using an older Qt release).
Comment 2 Alexey Shildyakov 2009-06-14 11:57:32 UTC
I don't reproduce this bug now. It was be for me only once. Maybe I was using old Qt. Now I have
Do you want continue to support this bug or may close it? Can you get me instructions what can I do to help you in this bug or to determine is this bug because i use old Qt?
Comment 3 David Faure 2009-06-15 11:39:09 UTC
Seems to me like a KDirWatch bug rather than a Qt bug (with KDirWatch passing a deleted QString to Qt), but anyway - not much we can do about an unreproduced crash. Please reopen if it happens again, thanks.
