To reproduce the crash with server installation of  "Version (Build ID: 576da8db5577f84d9c7e0e40ef3e166a7938c98) TinderBox: Win-x86@6, Branch:master, Pull Time: 2013-02-11_23:54:45" ENGLISH UI / German Locale  on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with own separate User Profile:

I first had to open a .odb (for example sample database in test kit Attachment 75215 [details] for Bug 60166) from file menu. Then proceeding corresponding to report reproduces crash.

backtrace from SIGABRT
Comment 3 Terrence Enger 2013-03-18 18:46:25 UTC
I see this in master commit 51a18f9, pulled around 2013-03-14 17:40 UTC.

This is the same assertion that was raised in fdo##61688 "SIGABRT with
debug build in VclBuilder::handleChild", and it results from the same line
of "application" code in VclBuilder::handleChild.  Of course, the call
stack beyond that function is quite different.  Perhaps this bug should be
marked duplicate of fdo#61688?


Is it the case that the failing build is configured with --enable-dbgutil?
I think that that is implicated in the crash, although in comment 6 to
fdo#68688 Juilen Nabet indicates that one build configured that way did not


What does your "not crashing over there" build do on this bug?
Comment 4 Terrence Enger 2013-03-18 18:47:44 UTC
My crash was on Linux 32-bit, so setting platform ALL.
Comment 5 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-03-18 18:49:09 UTC
@Terrence Enger (In reply to comment #3)
Where can I check that?
Comment 6 Terrence Enger 2013-03-18 18:54:18 UTC

In the top-level directory of the build, `cat autogen.lastrun`.

console + bt with symbols on master sources

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated yesterday (commit 84e4bf884718fcca8934b81b4037e063cf08c71e), I reproduced the crash.

I attached bt.
Comment 8 Julien Nabet 2013-03-18 20:22:09 UTC
Caolán: you might be interested in this one too, "cui/source/options/dbregister.cxx" is in the bt
Comment 9 Julien Nabet 2013-03-18 20:39:20 UTC
At least, this naive patch prevents from the crash on my laptop.

I am a USER, no idea what we are talking about. Is that really something I can access in a tinderbox build?

Hope I don't misunderstand but if Rainer took Win-x86@6, it must correspond to this config:
I don't see any dgb-util or other debug on this file.
Also, I read that LO in Windows (32 or 64 bits) is always 32bits.

@caolanm: this looks like it could be related to:

commit 705b60f94ea5721662811501594d13d1ad925eb3
Author: Caolán McNamara <caolanm@redhat.com>

    move paths option page .ui to cui and adapt code
    Change-Id: I60063a0d101ef47271194e45ee59f9ff622a4f1c

There, you replaced (in the first code location mentioned in comment 9) pHeaderBar by pBar. I don't quite understand this change, but it smells like pBar is NULL (or otherwise invalid) when pHeaderBar was not. Any insight on that?
Comment 14 Caolán McNamara 2013-04-05 11:18:41 UTC
yeah, this is my regression
