#5 xzgv crashes when updating thumbnail


setting: xzgv 0.9 self compiled (without errors) on ubuntu 7.10.

Problem: when entering a directory with pictures without thumbnails it shows the pictures. As soon as I try to generate (ie, update) the thumbnails, xzgv crashes with the error

The program 'xzgv' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 5245 error_code 8 request_code 146 minor_code 3)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

The same happens when entering a directory with pictures and thumbnails created previously

    Please recompile with -g flag (enable debug info) and after it crashes, do "$ gdb xzgv xzgv.core" and in the GDB prompt type bt (backtrace) and attach to this message.

    Hello, I'm not the original bug reporter, but I have the same issue on Ubuntu GNU/Linux x86_64 2.6.24-21.
    Compiled with "-g", but there is no core file, since the program does not really crash, it exits with error code 1.
    Everything is allright up to the point gtk_main(), into which I cannot step into and which exits the process.
    If you have any ideas how to point down the problem, please email me.

    Best regards,

    i had the same error message with xvgz-0.9. but after i manually compiled xvgz-0.9.1 in latest archlinux 2.6.29-ARCH,gtk2 2.16.2-1 it went away.
