Crash after deleting files
« on: August 14, 2006, 07:47:20 pm »
This is hard to reliably reproduce! If I have a file open and delete (or move) the file, I get a dialog box informing me it is deleted and asking "Do you wish to resave it?"  Well, I don't want to save it.  If I answer "no", it asks me again and again, every time I change focus back to VS.  If I select "Close Bufer". I get a slick-C stack trace ("This property or method is not allowed on this object").

Exception to the above: attempting to reproduce this for reporting here, I have discovered sometimes, it does not even ask "Do you wish to resave it?"  It seems to be related to whether I have made changes to any other buffers.

I do this:
root:/opt/clfs# mkdir t;ls -l >t/ls;chown rwuest t/ls

open the file /opt/clfs/t/ls

root:/opt/clfs# rm -rf t

Sometimes this actually behaves ok, often it  locks up my windows manager.  I usually can recover my system by switching to a console and doing a 'killall vs', then back to the X session, but that loses any unsaved work (done that). A few times, it has locked up my X server so ctrl-alt-F1  does not work - now it has effectively crashed my Linux box (I can ssh in from another box and kill it there).

This is VS V11.0.1, and OS is Fedora core 4.

Can't you just post it (or a link) here?  I emailed them and got no response. Sad, since I have paid for support  :(

I am having a problem similar to the one posted by "rwuest". If I press F1 to bring up a man page in a window in VS, it brings up the man page just fine. If I then switch to another app or another window in VS, the buffer containing the man page is marked as modified. When I switch back to VS, it pops up a dialog indicating "Another appication has deleted the following file: "man pages(s) for cfsetispeed" Do you wish to resave it?". If I press the "Close Buffer" button, I get a stack dump from VS indicating that "This property or method is not allowed on this object file=moveedge.ex offset=5531".

I don't know if the patch fixes the reason that the man page is flagged as deleted or just the stack dump when you try to close the buffer. I have emailed this info to support so hopefully, the same patch will work for me as well.
