Description Aaron Mavrinac (ezod) archtester 2010-02-23 20:17:49 UTC
Awesome 3.4.3 crashes after various long (hours) periods of uptime with the following error:

W: awesome: luaA_panic:679: unprotected error in call to Lua API (stack overflow (too much signal)), restarting awesome

Stack traces vary, and the bug is difficult to reproduce due to requiring long uptimes with extensive use. It is possible Chromium (browser) makes frequent use of whatever is causing the issue, as I see the bug much sooner when using it.

This appears to conform precisely to upstream bug #701 [1], where the problem has been traced to some memory leaks on the Lua stack.

Here I give you leave to slim.log where the bug that causes the X server crash and restart, the culprit is awesome with some apps

Is this still an issue with recent awesome versions?
