I'm getting double free() crashes on x11vnc [x86, x11vnc-0.7.1-r] during network traffic after authentication. Happens quite often, actually.
Scenario: x11vnc on one machine; I ssh into the machine with a tunnel from localhost:5900 to destination:5900 and then use 'vncviewer -encodings "tight hextile" localhost' to get the VNC display. I let it run for a while (often, 20 seconds is enough) until it crashes with a double free().
Might be worth a look, thank you!
Additional note: this usually occurs on a very unreliable line, so I guess it' pretty much "faulty packets only".
i use x11vnc-0.8.x in the same exact scenario (and have been for months), but i havent hit this bug before ...
ssh from work to home with 5900 local port forwarding ... run x11vnc on home machine and connect to it from work ...
I'll try to figure out some more environment parameters to make this testable, although it was actually a plea for some auditing.
well 0.8 is now stable ...
Ah, I'll check it out.
Wolf any news on this one?
Could not reproduce it with 0.8.1 yet.
... in like "it obviously doesn't happen with 0.8.1"
Since we're going to have 0.8.2 stable soon, I'll silently close this one.
