Update: Now we've had the fix for bug 1746874 released in 18.04 for a couple of weeks we should be able to see some correlation between gnome- shell and Xwayland crashes, if there's any at all.
But we don't see any correlation. In the past week, Ubuntu 18.04 has hit this gnome-shell crash 5967 times (via bug 1748450) and Xwayland's top crash has only happened 60 times over the same period. So now we really have to assume that either: (a) Xwayland is not crashing at all and gnome-shell is mistaking some transient error for a crash; or (b) Xwayland is crashing/exiting and failing to dump core, failing to leave a crash file. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to gnome-shell in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1505409 Title: gnome-shell crashed with SIGTRAP in x_io_error() from _XIOError() from _XEventsQueued() from XPending() from gdk_check_xpending() ["Connection to xwayland lost"] Status in GNOME Shell: Confirmed Status in Ubuntu GNOME: Confirmed Status in gdm3 package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Status in gnome-shell package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Status in mutter package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Status in gdm3 source package in Artful: Confirmed Status in gnome-shell source package in Artful: Confirmed Status in mutter source package in Artful: Confirmed Bug description: https://errors.ubuntu.com/problem/d0252e2b465152efea2511e72f1e31681e2b2742 --- Occurred during start-up, before I did anything special... 1 Ubuntu Wily Werewolf (development branch) 15.10 2 3.16.3-1ubuntu6 3&4 not applicable ProblemType: Crash DistroRelease: Ubuntu 15.10 Package: gnome-shell 3.16.3-1ubuntu6 ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 4.2.0-16.19-generic 4.2.3 Uname: Linux 4.2.0-16-generic x86_64 NonfreeKernelModules: wl ApportVersion: 2.19.1-0ubuntu2 Architecture: amd64 CurrentDesktop: GNOME Date: Mon Oct 12 19:22:07 2015 DisplayManager: gdm ExecutablePath: /usr/bin/gnome-shell GsettingsChanges: InstallationDate: Installed on 2015-10-08 (4 days ago) InstallationMedia: Ubuntu-GNOME 15.10 "Wily Werewolf" - Alpha amd64 (20150924) ProcCmdline: gnome-shell --mode=gdm --wayland --display-server ProcEnviron: SHELL=/bin/false PATH=(custom, no user) XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=<set> LANG=nl_NL.UTF-8 Signal: 5 SourcePackage: gnome-shell StacktraceTop: ??
