Description foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-06 07:48:03 UTC
Muine crashes on badly escaped files, this seems to be due to some gnome-vfs bug exposed by muine. A quick workaround for muine would be the attached patch as long as gnome-vfs hasn't been investigated. It just checks if vfs can actually get file info & returns if it can't.

A small backtrace that shows the probable vfs problem (note that this bt is already taken from a slightly altered muine codebase).

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I have this very problem with muine.  Otherwise it seems to work well and I'm getting used to using the thing ;)

Will this patch make it into portage soon, or should I start re-naming all my files?  I have a *lot* to re-name.
Comment 3 Cletus Lichte 2004-10-28 18:06:16 UTC
BTW, the files I'm having the problems with have an apostrophe in the name, e.g.:

Yngwie Malmsteen_1984_Rising Force_05_Icarus' Dream Suite Op 4.flac
Comment 4 Peter Johanson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-15 19:54:33 UTC
Please see bug #72770 for an ebuild that should fix the problem. Tested locally, muine survives with an MP3 named like the one foser mentioned. Please report back if it works/doesn't work.

Marking TEST-REQUEST, pending feedback.
