#583 crash after closing a modified document and choosing save


At closing an unsaved tab Geany asks whether to save the file. After confirming it, it crashes on Windows 7.

Geany 0.19.1, GTK+ 2.16.6, GLib 2.20.5

    Did this happen only once or can you reproduce it?
    Unfortunately, the backtrace isn't that helpful but thanks anyway.

    I am able to reproduce it on Windows 7 x64.
    Is there a way to produce a better backtrace on windows? (If it would help you then)

    Not sure. The GTK and GLib libraries with debug symbols would help but I can't find any on the net.

    Which locale do you use?
    Is the 'Use Windows File Open/Save dialogs' option enabled?

    One moe thing you could try is to use the native 64bit Windows GTK/Glib libraries, maybe that helps.
    Get the bundle from http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win64/gtk+/2.16/gtk+-bundle_2.16.6-20100912_win64.zip and extract it into your Geany installation. That would install some files you won't need but they also don't hurt. It might be worth a try.

    I tried to reproduce on an English Windows 7 x86 but with no luck, Geany doesn't crash :).

    I have this on linux and windows. Here's the gdb output in Arch linux with v0.20 (svn >= r5455):

    The problem seems to occur only if "Ensure newline at file end" is enabled and there is no newline at the end of the document. The file is always saved, though.

    The 'Use Windows File Open/Save dialogs' option has no effect on this behaviour. And it is still the same with the proposed gtk bundle. My locale is German_Germany.1252.

    I can reproduce this on Linux too.

    >The problem seems to occur only if "Ensure newline at file end" is enabled and there is no newline at the end of the document

    Thanks, this helped to reliably reproduce the problem. Thanks also to both of you for reporting this.

    It's possible this is a Scintilla bug. I've sent a message to the Scintilla mailing list about this:

    Hopefully they can shed light on the issue.

    This should be fixed in SVN now.
