Crash Data


(1 file, 1 obsolete file)

Gecko crashes with a segmentation fault when turning off Bluetooth during a file transfer. This is almost always reproducible. A stack trace is attached.


  - turn on Bluetooth and pair with PC
  - send file from PC to phone
  - let file transfer run for a while, then turn off Bluetooth

Expected result:

  - 'Transfer canceled' message or something similar

Actual result:

  - Gecko crashes

The problem here is that an instance of UnixSocketImpl gets deleted while there are still users left (SocketReceiveTask). The delete operation is added to the end of the main thread's event queue. All users of the UnixSocketImpl should be located in front of it.

The patch introduces the generic class template DeleteInstanceRunnable. I'd like to move it to a more visible location, if there is a fitting file.

The fix has been tested with inbound and gecko18.

Delete UnixSocketImpl instance after SocketReceiveTasks completed

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): -
User impact if declined: Crash when Bluetooth gets turned off during file transfers
Testing completed: On my unagi
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): AFSAIK, Bluetooth is the only user of the patched code. So it probably wont get worse.

Landed on mozilla-b2g18/gaia master prior to the 1/25 branching to mozilla-b2g18_v1_0_0/v1.0.0, updating status-b2g-v1.0.0 to fixed.
Does not make sense to create a regression issue.
