B5: Slickedit Crashed when switching workspaces, won't relaunch
« on: September 18, 2014, 07:45:18 pm »
I switched from one workspace to another using the pick list from the Project menu. It seemed to close the current project, and maybe started to load the new one, but vaporized before it completed the load. Now it vaporizes on every launch attempt:

/opt/slickedit/bin/vs: line 38:  6164 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) "$VS_LAUNCH_BIN_PATH/$VS_LAUNCH_BIN_NAME"_exe "$@"
I can't find the path it's referring to, so don't know where the dump is.

While writing this, I tried renaming the .slickedit/19.0.0 folder, forcing a re-creation/migration from 18.0.1 and now it will launch.
I kept the offending 19.0.0 folder so if you have a file I should look at for more info, let me know and I'll retrieve it.

Update: After a normal quit, Slickedit started crashing on launch. Same error message as before. Some digging found the vrestore.slk file is the culprit. Removing that file from the .slickedit/19.0.0/ directory resolves the problem.

Can you post the offending vrestore.slk?

I did a bit more digging, and discovered that the crash was because I've got Slickedit set to open the last workspace on launch. The .vtg file in that workspace is what was causing the problem. I removed the tag file and slickedit didn't crash. Put the tag file back and it did. Unfortunately the project I'm working on is export controlled, so I can't release the tag file.

If it helps, the workspace has 2 projects, with Verilog, SystemVerilog, VHDL, and TCL sources.
