Description Rosemary 2013-01-24 17:13:11 UTC
Application: kwin (4.9.4)
KDE Platform Version: 4.9.4 (Compiled from sources)
Qt Version: 4.8.3
Operating System: Linux 3.5.0-22-generic i686
Distribution: Ubuntu 12.10

-- Information about the crash:
- What I was doing when the application crashed:  I was filling out a crash report for krunner and I may have been playing kpatience while waiting for krunner dbg symbols to install.

- Unusual behavior I noticed: krunner and plasma destop had crashed.  I noticed something about ibus in the krunner crash report.

-- Backtrace:
Application: KWin (kwin), signal: Bus error

Comment 1 Thomas Lübking 2013-01-24 17:21:09 UTC
do you happen to use sth. called "bleachbit"?

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 313545 ***
Comment 2 Rosemary 2013-02-02 22:49:40 UTC
I had just run Bleachbit as myself and as root.  Do I need to set it not to clear caches?
Comment 3 Thomas Lübking 2013-02-03 08:36:35 UTC

I assume that not "deleting" caches will prevent this as well as preventing it from overriding the relevant inodes would.
Given the authors do apparently not even know how to reliably figure whether a file is currently in use (thus not safe to invalidate at all) and the snake-oil character of the tool, i'd however suggest to not use it at all.
Automated destruction is fairly dangerous and I for one do not trust the authors skills at all.
Comment 4 Rosemary 2013-02-03 18:13:11 UTC
Thanks for the interesting articles Thomas.  I'll remove Bleachbit.
