I'll look back at that case and see if that makes more sense given what I've seen with Rowbearto's core dumps.

It's a tough one to track down, I haven't been able to reproduce anything with or without xretrace.  I started looking at xretrace because I realized (a little late) the only reported coredumps on linux for v24 post beta were with it. It may end up being just a coincidence.

I'm able to reproduce it immediately without xretrace!

I unloaded all xretrace modules and deleted my state file.

Then I load the python file that I sent you, turn on soft wrap (Patrick: Did you enable soft wrap?), go to the very end of line 189 (closing quote), press <ENTER> and crash right away.

Patrick: Make sure you:

1) Use my user.cfg.xml
2) Turn on soft wrap
3) Go to the end of line 189, just after the closing quote, and press <ENTER>

If there are any more files I can provide you let me know.

Patrick:

All my core dumps post beta for v24 were not with xretrace. Only this one was. The first time that I loaded xretrace was on December 8. So all the core dumps I gave you before Dec 8 did not have xretrace.

There are 2 other macros that I have had loaded the whole time. I unloaded both of them, deleted my state file and I was able to repro it again. So it is not my macros either.

After deleting the state file, I relaunched SE, went to line 189, turned on soft wrap, went to the end of line 189 after the quote, pressed <ENTER>, and crash right away.

I was very pleased and impressed that you looked at xretrace and managed to notice an obscure problem.  Any more comments you have are very welcome.
