Description Franz Trischberger 2012-08-05 14:53:17 UTC
Application: kwin (4.9.00)
KDE Platform Version: 4.9.00 (Compiled from sources)
Qt Version: 4.8.2
Operating System: Linux 3.5.0-gentoo x86_64
Distribution: "Gentoo Base System release 2.1"

-- Information about the crash:
- What I was doing when the application crashed:
1) make sure there is no visible application open on your workspace (none open at all or all minimized)
2) make plasma-desktop crash or just kill it

The crash can be reproduced every time.

-- Backtrace:
Application: KWin (kwin), signal: Segmentation fault
Using host libthread_db library "/lib64/libthread_db.so.1".

Comment 1 Thomas Lübking 2012-08-05 17:11:37 UTC
I'd say it happens because the tabbox is not build [1] and we also don't enter "empty tabbox" mode

[1] clientmodel.cpp:190 TabBoxClient* c = tabBox->nextClientFocusChain(start).data(); is null

Proposal: in case the focus chain returns 0, we could just fall through to the stacking order?

Semi-related observations:
a) it does not seem possible to effectively select StackingOrder (it's not the GUI, the config is updated)

b) i don't understand this:
TabBoxClient* c = tabBox->nextClientFocusChain(start).data();
gets called for sure, but
Client* TabBox::nextClientFocusChain(Client* c) const seems not (i added debug out there) in the empty(?) focus chain case (otherwise yes)

Git commit ee12ed430639afbfce3e5e6904b850abbf31f3f1 by Martin Gräßlin.
Committed on 08/08/2012 at 22:28.
Pushed by graesslin into branch 'KDE/4.9'.

Verify QVariant is valid before casting to Client*

If the ClientModel does not contain any Clients, which can
happen if there is no desktop window, accessing the data of a
ModelIndex returns an invalid QVariant. Because of that it
needs to be ensured that the QVariant is valid before trying to
cast it to a Client Pointer.
