Description Christian Stadelmann 2015-12-11 13:02:06 UTC
Description of problem:
I ran eclipse in a Gnome+Wayland session, so it was running with SWT+Gtk3+Wayland backend. When right-clicking on one of the perspectives, eclipse crashes.

Comment 9 Christian Stadelmann 2015-12-11 13:20:35 UTC
Probably an issue in Eclipse or Gtk3.

Software versions:

Comment 10 Kamil Páral 2015-12-15 09:46:40 UTC
Hi Christian, can you reproduce this reliably? Does the same crash occur when running under X11 or not? Thanks.

Comment 11 Christian Stadelmann 2015-12-15 17:44:40 UTC
This crash does not happen when running under X11 (or under XWayland with GDK_BACKEND=x11 set), only on wayland (with wayland backend for Gtk+ 3.x). With X11 backend I am running into this issue instead:

Yes, I can reproduce this reliably. Steps to reproduce:
1. open eclipse with gtk3 in a wayland session. Gtk3 should choose wayland as its backend by default. Select a workspace if required
2. open any perspective
3. right-click on the perspective (right top corner of eclipse main window)

What happens:
Instant crash.

Note: you might have trouble right-clicking on the perspective button due to . I have to click ~20…50 pixels above the button to hit it.

Comment 12 Christian Stadelmann 2016-05-06 16:31:48 UTC
Still present with eclipse-swt-4.6.0-0.5.git201604261105.fc24.x86_64 on Wayland. Same reproducer as in comment #11.

Comment 13 Christian Stadelmann 2016-09-01 11:58:08 UTC
This bug now (in F25) triggers a crash in gnome-shell, see bug #1330510 and bug #1372311 for details.

Comment 14 Matthias Clasen 2016-09-06 18:36:48 UTC
If this is reproducible, you could try to break on display_protocol_error where the EPROTO originates.

Same on F24 too.

Yes, see attached logs. Steps I did:
0. run gdb from outside your gnome+wayland session, otherwise it will be killed when your session goes down.
1. start eclipse in a gnome+wayland session (and make sure it is running with wayland backend)
2. attach gdb to eclipse's child process named "java"
3. gdb: enable logging
4. gdb: disable handling of SIGSEGV because java is crazy and uses SIGSEGV for normal operation: `handle SIGSEGV nostop noprint`
5. gdb: `break display_protocol_error`
6. gdb: continue
7. eclipse: right-click on any perspective button
8. gdb: `bt` and `t a a bt full`, then continue to the next hit. In fact I ran these commands 3 times, the last one probably contains an error that the wayland compositor is gone.
9. quit gdb, recover your gnome wayland session

eclipse log file [workspace]/.metadata/.log

When trying again to reproduce, eclipse crashes. This time with a more meaningful crasher reporting a stackoverflow. See attached logs for details.

Comment 17 Christian Stadelmann 2016-09-28 20:28:02 UTC
This issue is gone now on Fedora 25 with latest updates installed.
