I was working on a change to the prefs dialog today. I had previously merged 2 PRs without incident, and then made changes to a few files, including ui/prefs.* and several src/gnome2/*.c. Built, ran...and the prefs dialog won't open.
mod.mgr and adv.search open fine. I backed out changes, rebuilt, no difference. I backed out my git tree several ways, including "git reset --hard HEAD~~" to get to the point before the merges. Rebuilt, no difference. Did a bunch of other things, trying to understand how and where I lost the ability to open prefs. This makes no sense to me because I built yesterday and have been toying with biblesync, via prefs of course. I did git reset to a point before the double arrows were fixed a week ago, rebuilt, no difference. Prefs will not open. Completely reboot the whole machine, rebuilt from a totally clean tree, no difference. The worst/best part is that Xiphos *thinks* it opened prefs. After quitting Xiphos, settings.xml shows <prefsopen>1</prefsopen>. When I ask for prefs to open, and noting that I use MATE desktop, the taskbar stops showing the Xiphos window itself as having focus...but nothing else does, either. No new window has come into existence, but the Xiphos window has lost focus. Approaching desperation, I breakpointed create_preferences_dialog() in gdb, and what I get is at the bottom. Big question: What in the world are org.gtk.vfs.UDisks2VolumeMonitor and g_unix_volume_monitor_init(), and why are they involved in creation of a prefs dialog, and why are they failing when (if they were involved yesterday) they didn't fail until today? You can't tell from the simple copy/paste below, but after hitting the last 'n', Xiphos simply...went away. For perhaps a minute. And then the "Error calling ..." message, at which point I hit ^C and backtraced. Seriously, what has happened here? I have literally zero understanding of what sort of "volume monitoring" has tried to take place or why it has begun just now, or why (if it has been going on before) it failed to be started today. Googling the "Error calling Start..." has been uninformative, search results being anywhere from 2 to 5 years in the past, and related to things like gvfs, yet my environment has had no changes lately so that the state of things like gvfs would change. Life theme of mine: I love puzzles, I hate mysteries. This is total mystery. I am in serious need of a huge clue.
