core dump triggered by garbage collection (?)


From: Mark McAuliffe
Subject: core dump triggered by garbage collection (?)
Date: Thu, 28 Aug 2003 10:16:20 -0700

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2003-07-11 on oscar
configured using `configure  --prefix=/usr/local.oscar/emacs-21.3'
Important settings:

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I have encountered an emacs core dump multiple times, usually, but not
always, when reading mail with VM.  Beyond that, I don't have a lot of
information on what triggers the bug -- it seems completely unpredictable.
I have two core files from two different instances of the crash.  They have
similar, but not identical, stacks.  In both cases, though, it looks like
emacs was doing gc at the time of the crash.

The first stack is:

I will hold onto the core files in case anyone would like to see them.  I'm
sorry I cannot be more specific about what triggers the bug, but hopefully
the core files contain enough info to figure out what causes this.
