Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:13002


Non-exhaustive testing shows:
with a project loaded, double-clicking or otherwise maximizing the main QGIS window will cause the following sequence of events:
-window is made bigger, toolbars etc. are loaded
-canvas is white at this point, shortly afterwards (during redraw ?) QGIS crashes.

Only tested on winXP, QGIS version 1.5.0-2 binary package.


#1 Updated by fenugrec - over 13 years ago

After a bit more testing, I've found this:
-number or type of layers is irrelevant
-crashes only if the Overview window is open and has
at least 1 layer marked as "display in overview"
-doesn't crash on minimize/restore

this could be related to other tickets like #2884

#4 Updated by Volker Fröhlich almost 13 years ago

I tried with XP and 1.6.0. No problems there.

Can you give that a try too?

#5 Updated by fenugrec - almost 13 years ago

I just updated to 1.6.0, and the bug is still present. Remember the overview window has to be activated and displaying at least 1 layer. This similar to #2884, which I am also plagued by.

#6 Updated by Volker Fröhlich almost 13 years ago

Ah, I got you wrong on the overview before.

Very funny! I've seen #2884 happen before, but I currently can't crash 1.6 on Windows. Neither with maximizing.

  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Cannot reproduce in Win7 with latest trunk (get a new computer...).
I did get behaviour of the overview not displaying, however if undocked the overview window it did display consistently on zoom, maximise minimise etc.

Also was fun to learn about the overview feature. If it was not for this bug would never have found it....
