User who did this - Dean Scarff (dos) Attached to Project - awesome Summary - awful.util.spawn crashes during startup, works fine afterwards Task Type - Bug Report Category - Core Status - Unconfirmed Assigned To - Operating System - All Severity - Medium Priority - Normal Reported Version - 3.4.15 Due in Version - Undecided Due Date - Undecided Details - This was reported independently in Debian and Ubuntu a while ago: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=705011 https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/awesome/+bug/1176862 I can reproduce in 3.4.15-1ubuntu1. This was definitely a regression (my rc.lua didn't change, I just upgraded awesome and probably some other packages). Steps to reproduce: 1. In rc.lua: awful.util.spawn("/bin/echo") 2. Start awesome from GDM Observed behaviour: In .xsession-errors: X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) Major opcode of failed request: 12 (X_ConfigureWindow) Resource id in failed request: 0x0 Serial number of failed request: 595 Current serial number in output stream: 596 Then awesome crashes. If I replace "/bin/echo" with "/usr/bin/yes", the "yes" process can be observed still running. Expected behaviour: echo gets run. Awesome doesn't crash. Workaround: If I remove the relevant awful.util.spawn call from my rc.lua, awesome doesn't crash on startup. Then I can run awful.util.spawn("/bin/echo") from awesome-client fine. (Obviously I don't actually want to run echo specifically, I'm actually running a script, but I'm using echo as en example here because it's an innocent and ubiquitous command for testing).
