Autocompletion list crashes the application

Create issue
Issue #688 new
Timóteo created an issue

If the autocompletion list is invoked a second time - say, first typing s on the text editor, erasing and then typing s again - the application will crash and close at once.

I'm using Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon 64-bits. I installed SpeedCrunch from the 64-bit DEB file, but the problem persists with the .tar.bz2 binary. A friend of mine, using the same Mint system, reported no issues.

Execution of the application through the terminal generates the text output in the attached screenshot after reproducing the error.

Edit: Text file is gdb log when reproducing the error on a debug build.

    I can't reproduce this on a Linux Mint 18 VM either. @Mutoh Did you use SpeedCrunch on that system before? If so, could you try moving the ~/.config/SpeedCrunch and ~/.local/share/SpeedCrunch directories out of the way and see if that helps?

  2. Timóteo reporter

    @fk Yes, I did use SpeedCrunch on this system before. I had built it from a repository download made on November 16, and the same error was already happening back then. However, I assumed it was simply because I was running an untested version of the application, so I uninstalled it without giving much thought and left it be.

    I tried your recommendation of moving these directories but the error persists.

    This does indeed sound like a corrupted/incompatible session (i.e. history variables,...). I have a hunch that you can indeed fix this by deleting some file somewhere. I am not on Linux though, so I don't know where else we store files.

    If you can solve it, I would love to see the culprit file. Probably it's us who are to blame after all ;)

    @Mutoh Any chance you can run SpeedCrunch through a debugger and send us the backtrace? In case you know nothing about what I just said, run gdb speedcrunch in the terminal, then type r<Enter>, wait for crash, then type bt<Enter>. Of course, you may need to install gdbfirst.

    Sorry if this info is too basic for you, but I don't like to assume the technical knowledge of a user, and this may be useful for someone else that arrives here with no knowledge at all.

    @heldercorreia I'm actually not very used to gdb, which I use only sporadically, so I thank you for your consideration. This is the output content from when I followed your instructions (the gdb commands were provided from a text file):

    Quit anyway? (y or n) [answered Y; input not from terminal]

    Oh, it might be worth mentioning that the error remains even after SpeedCrunch is uninstalled (be it through apt remove or apt purge) and reinstalled from the .deb (or ran from the tar.gz2 binary).

    Of course, this is a release binary, so debug info is stripped out. @fkrul Any chance of providing @Mutoh a debug build?

  7. Helder Correia repo owner

    @Mutoh The log makes me think that the issue lies somewhere in the completion popup logic, since the very last call before crashing is `` QTreeModel::data()```. But the fact that you're the first and only user to ever report this faulty behavior is strange. I'll think about how we could help any further without being able to debug it on our side.

    This happens to me consistently on Windows 10 with 0.12. If I disable auto-completion - no crash. Any update on this?
