User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040301 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040301 Firefox/0.8 There are many situations when the ESounD (esd) becomes unstable -- it can be as simple as exiting a song in XMMS at the wrong point, but when this happens, Mozilla (or Firefox) will lock solid as soon as you enter any _keystrokes_ (either location bar or in a form). Ctrl-C or Kill will exit, so it's not a hard lock, but it appears that you cannot restart Mozilla as it will always have that same behaviour. The bug is reproducible only once you have an esd process failed, and I haven't yet figured out how to do that, but we may not need to: I ran Mozilla in debug mode, waited for the lockup, then did a bt and found ... #0 0xffffe410 in ?? () #1 0x00000004 in ?? () #2 0x00000004 in ?? () #3 0xbfffbf68 in ?? () #4 0x4020ec7b in __read_nocancel () from /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0 #5 0x41f702e4 in esd_send_auth () from /usr/lib/libesd.so.0 #6 0xbfffbf68 in ?? () #7 0x00000004 in ?? () my guess is the solution is to impose a timeout or some other protection on esd_send_auth, and to either kill the esd (user owned) process or to just ignore sound and move on. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. it's unknown how to crash esd 2. 3.
