Bug report #589
Large polygon (under postgis) causes complete crash of X session
|Affected QGIS version:||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Fedora||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Resolution:||fixed|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Copied to github as #:||10648|
A third party shapefile, loaded into postgis (successfully), causes qgis to crash when viewed.
The layer is 53 polygon elements. There is one element of ~430,000 segments.
Qgis will load the layer if it is re-constituted as the equivalent linestrings.
The crash appears to be at X level, causing a complete reboot of the X server, and a loss of my X session.
