this is what I did until now:
- I Downloaded Gnash-source 0.8.4, I compiled it, test it successfully.
- I get the latest sources from bazaar repository, but I was not able to compile it.
- I found some SWF files, from Internet, that does not work correctly, ( like the game "aqua energizer, in ""). others worked perfectly.

Is it possible, using the log output, to locate the source cpp file that causes the bug. If not, what can I do to reproduce a bug and locate it's cause ? (decompile the SWF or write my own action Script file ...)?

Yes, there has been an open bug about it for weeks:

Although what's described in there isn't the same as the X-window crash,
when trying to debug it I get sometimes the behaviour described in the
bug, sometimes an X window fault.

The only website I can always reproduce it on is (but only when it has the little video widget
on the right). But many other sites cause a crash too. On leaving the
page when the SWF is running, any xulrunner browser crashes - for me
both Firefox and Epiphany.

I have tried various different things to fix it, but I've had no luck
whatsoever. All cases seem to be continuing brower-plugin communication
when the plugin no longer exists.


Yes, YouTube does work in Gnash
