Comment 11 Olivier Fourdan 2016-09-01 07:26:59 UTC
WAYLAND_DEBUG to the rescue, shows the app gets killed because of a Wayland protocol error:

[528761.079] wl_display(xdg_shell@13, 2, "destroyed popup not top most popup")

Comment 12 Olivier Fourdan 2016-09-01 12:24:48 UTC
Seems like devassistant-gui is umapping its toplevel window while the popup are still present, causing handle_popup_parent_destroyed() to be reached in mutter which will rightfully send back an error to the client, which kills it...

While this is no problem in X11, xsg-shell on Wayland won't allow that - So I am trying to see if we could avoid that at the gtk+ level, when an app does that, otherwise the fix would belong to the app.

Comment 13 Olivier Fourdan 2016-09-12 08:07:17 UTC
A fix for this has been pushed upstream in gtk+

Comment 14 Christian Stadelmann 2016-09-26 18:57:18 UTC
The crasher is gone, thanks!

Now the window is putting itself into background, which looks pretty weird. The window still has focus, but is not displayed topmost. Instead an inactive (insensitive) window is printed in front of devassistant-gui

Comment 15 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 14:20:15 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
