Large polygon (under postgis) causes complete crash of X session

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.


#1 Updated by john-floyd-dnr-nsw-gov-au - about 17 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

This apparently was due to qt4.

Upgrade to qt4-4.2.3 fixed this (from 4.2.2). The Qt release notes included an item on polygon fill problem fixed.
