#30 spurious/duplicate entries in panel right click menu (Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit)

when running CDE on Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64, right-clicking on any icon on the panel will show the contents of the menu with some duplicated, and a number of spurious ones labeled "action_button." Clicking on any of the "action_button" entries will cause dtwm to disappear. issue has not occurred for me on Ubuntu 12.04 or 13.04 for i386.

steps to reproduce:
1) on a clean install of 12.04 x86-64, download/build/install CDE exactly as described on the Linux Build Wiki (pulling source from git.)
2) right click on any icon in the front panel, you should see something like the attached screengrab.
3) click on any of the "action_button" entries. dtwm will disappear, leaving open windows floating in limbo.

    also happens on Ubuntu 13.10 x86-64. would attaching the log from /var/crash help?

     
  • I believe this has smth to do with GCC flags. Which GCC version are you using?

    Can you recompile with -O0 and see whether the issue goes away?

      Hi Andrew,

      gcc 4.6, I believe.

      n00b question time- how can I pass the –O0 flag? The few ways I’ve found via search- adding it to the FLAGS line in the makefile or adding them as command line switches- results in an immediate build failure. if I try it via a CFLAGS variable I get a response that CFLAGS doesn’t exist on my system.

  • Under programs/dtwm/, in Makefile, at line 144, replace

    CXXDEBUGFLAGS = -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing
    

    with

    CXXDEBUGFLAGS = -O0
    

    Also, since all CDE binaries are built with the debug information (-g), you can launch X11 server with only a single client (xterm for example), and then run dtwm under gdb (even in the same xterm). Once you make dtwm crash, you can run the bt command from gdb shell and post the output here.
