Gimp crashes with text tool & caps lock
Status in GTK+:
Status in gtk+2.0 package in Ubuntu:
Gimp crashes with a segfault when I use caps lock while renaming a
layer. Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a new blank gimp document
2. select the text tool
3. type a couple of words of text (gimp will create a text layer above the
4. with the text tool still selected, click on the background layer (just to
move away from the text layer)
5. now double click on the text layer to rename the layer (layer name gets
6. press the caps lock key
7. click on the background layer again (without renaming or doing anything to
the text layer)
Now repeat steps 5 and 6.
I can force this to happen every time I launch Gimp. Rebooting makes
no difference. It seems to be the second time I press caps lock that
forces the crash. I tried launching Gimp with caps lock on vs caps
lock off, but I don't believe it made any difference. I can force a
crash every time following the above sequence.
I deleted my gimp preferences folder then rebooted for good measure.
Gimp created a fresh preferences folder, but it hasn't solved the
problem. I was originally in single window mode, but the new
preferences folder put me back to multi window, but it crashes either
I ran dmesg | tail after the crash and got the following line:
gimp-2.8: segfault at 14 ip 00007ff5100e0cd9 sp 00007ffef11bfcb0
error 4 in libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.2400.30[7ff51001b000+43e000]
I'm using a fresh install of Xubuntu 16.04 with nvidia 361.42 driver
(available from the Additional Drivers tab). In that same tab, I also
have enabled Processor microcode firmware for Intel CPUs. Terminal
tells me Gimp version is 2.8.16-1ubuntu1
I'm not very experienced with bug reporting and not sure what other
information I need to supply. Gimp was absolutely rock solid on this
machine with 15.10, so it may be a Xubuntu issue.
Hope someone can take a look at this. Thanks.
