The insert key causes SeaMonkey to close, but only in the Puppy forum compose window. In addition, SeaMonkey sometimes spontaneously closes if I'm running with only one 256 MB stick of RAM. Whether the two are related I have no idea. It seems reasonable to me to suppose they might be, so I include them both.

Can anyone recommend another phpBB forum I could join, to see if the Insert key closes SeaMonkey there?

Would everyone who is experiencing this problem do me a favor: power off, unplug the secondary IDE cable from your mainboard, and reboot.

Does the Insert key Seamonkey vanishment problem, still exist?


After strenuous efforts and extreme danger to my hard drive and cables, due to the micromanaged cable routing and bay configuration of my Dell 4300 clamshell tower, I finally managed to disconnect the secondary ide cable from the Motherboard, plug the primary cable into the DVD drive, and boot Puppy 4.0 as requested.

And, I'm sorry to report, the answer is YES. Hitting Insert still closes Seamonkey instantly when in the forum's post window.

BTW - I also tested for this defect with my laptop, running Seamonkey 1.1.2 under Puppy 3.01 Retro, and in that configuration, hitting [INSERT] (or rather, [INS] does NOT close Seamonkey.

OK, thanks for the trial. I asked for it because I discovered that 4.1-alpha-6, scsi-1 kernel, booted frugal from an scsi disk...does have the problem, if I connect my DVD writer to the IDE secondary. Disconnect the secondary entirely, the problem goes away.

My homebuilt has a vintage-2003 Supermicro X5DPE-G2 mainboard. If memory serves, your Dell 4300 has an Intel mainboard of similar vintage. I wonder if your, my, and Flash's three mainboards have the same keyboard controller. Clearly this problem is not very widespread, otherwise the complaint volume would be louder.

Bedtime now; I'll check our keyboard controllers' identities tomorrow. Also will conduct experiments with other devices (e.g. disk drives) on the secondary channel.

Have just tried Opera in Muppy-Live (using it now), and hitting [INSERT] while text is entered in this post window does only what's expected.

Zooming the display while in the forum works more nicely in Opera too. I find 150% zoom quite comfortable for both reading and entering posts on my 19" monitor.

Sub_title: [INSERT] doesn't close Seamonkey when entering posts in this forum under Muppy
 

Have just tried the [INSERT] key in Seamonkey under Muppy 084 LiveCD, while entering text here. Although the look is different (no search option at the URL field, for instance), the version number is the same - 1.1.8, yet hitting the killer key does nothing.

So presumably the bug is in Puppy, not Seamonkey.

Haven't had any developer feedback on whether this bug has been carried on into 4.1 or 4.1 Retro.

Would be a shame to have to live with it until Puppy 4.2.

Actually, I have had this problem for a long time. I thought it was a
Seamonkey problem so I didn't report it here. IIRC it also happens
in Google Docs.

Not being a touch typist, I just stopped using the insert key - not too
hard since I have to look at the keyboard anyway.

I generally use Puppy 406 conservative since it is the only version
that does a full poweroff on my desktop.

The insert key vaporizes Seamonkey, as it has on earlier pups.

I just tried opening a second instance of Seamonkey on the second
desktop - the insert key vaporized both.

In response to your question, I have just tested 408 retro and 408.
Both have the insert vaporization feature.

My computer:
Intel D850MV, P4 @1.5GHz, 256MB PC800 RDRAM, 16G HD /w 1 NTFS partition

In all cases the puppies are frugal installations in folders.

Every time this happens I get this line added to /tmp/xerrs.log

Code:
From 406 conservative:
/usr/lib/seamonkey-1.1.11/run-mozilla.sh: line 131:  4073 Segmentation fault      "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

From 408 retro:
/usr/lib/seamonkey-1.1.11/run-mozilla.sh: line 131:  3615 Segmentation fault      "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

From 408:
/usr/lib/seamonkey-1.1.11/run-mozilla.sh: line 131:  4781 Segmentation fault      "$prog" ${1+"$@"}


I hope this helps - it is beyond me.

Thanks for the feedback GeoW. Are there any other specifics to the circumstances?

I haven't used Seamonkey in Google Docs. But I recently found that on my Puppy 4.0 Kernel 2.6.21 there are two conditions that have to be met for [INSERT] to kill Seamonkey (and yes, it kills all running instances, IIRC):

1. there must be text in this forum's post window, AND

2. the cursor must be in the window too

In other words, if I merely hit the "quote" button, but don't move the cursor to the input window, [INSERT] doesn't kill Seamonkey.

Beyond my skills also. And I'm using Seamonkey 1.1.8 in Muppy right now, where this Bug is not manifest. But will see whether I get similar results next time I run Puppy.

My Puppy 4.0 BTW is running strictly from RAM, loaded from the LiveCD each time I boot, and using a 2fs file on a Vfat partition.

Have just tried this with Puppy 4.0 K2.6.21 on my system: a Dell Dimension 4300 (Dumpster Special) with a 1.6GHz PIII (?) and half a GB of PC133 RAM

I opened the /tmp/xerrs.log, saved the contents elsewhere in Geany, deleted all the text in the original, saved, and then hit the Insert key..

When I reopened /tmp/xerrs.log it was still completely empty...

One other thing. It occurred to me that the INSERT bug might not be occurring in Muppy because of the choice of windows managers, and I couldn't be sure I'd actually tried it in JWM, as I would in Puppy.

So I switched to JWM, and tried it.

NOPE. INSERT doesn't kill Seamonkey in the JWM Desktop either under Muppy. So far it seems to be strictly a Puppy BUG ....

I am someone who was looking into this problem myself.
I don't use puppy linux and I do get this problem.

I have seen this problem for some years now.
I was assuming it had something to do with my Custom-Compiled LFS system, being custom compiled and all...

As I was looking into the problem I came across this forum & thread where you have the same exact problem and came to the same results.

Apparently, clicking insert while the cursor is positioned inside any textbox will cause the crash consistently.

My system can run as live-cd & live-usb and generates the problem on any pc-hardware so hardware is not the problem.

I am using XFCE 4.4.2 as my windowmanager.
I am uClibc (0.9.28.3) based.
I am using gtk+ 2.12.11
I am using glib 2.16.5



The crash is a segfault that generates a coredump

I ran seamonkey against valgrind and got the following issue when I clicked the [insert] key:

Ignoring how much memory seamonkey leaks, it looks like this might be a gtk+ or glib problem.

I'm getting this problem with Firefox 3.0.3 in Puppy 4.1. I got it officially, but I did manually replace some files in the profile folder to transfer in some bookmarks from another install.

I will have to investigate further later. Try it in a pristine copy, at different locations, and different versions of Puppy. See what's shaking.

Okay, my findings show that versions 1-3 of Firefox all crash on insert in a <textarea> widget, in Puppy 4.00 and 4.1. So does Seamonkey.

Seamonkey doesn't give me anything helpful. However, Firefox gives me this:
Code:
bash-3.00# firefox WebPage.html
/usr/local/firefox/crashreporter: error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I don't know if that error is the one causing the crash, or if it happens after the crash when trying to load the crash reporter. I think the latter, because I never actually see this crash reporter in Firefox 3, which is the only version giving me that information. The other versions and seamonkey give me
Code:
bash-3.00# seamonkey file:///tmp/dfd/WebPage.html
/usr/lib/seamonkey-1.1.11/run-mozilla.sh: line 131:  1892 Segmentation fault      "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

Which basically means the error is comming from the seamonkey binary. Not necessarily where the error is, it's just the part that the error causes to break.


I had no issues in Puppy 3.01.

EDIT - oops

So, where we're at (still Sad):
In Puppy 4.x, and also thekevinday's linux system, Firefox/Seamonkey crash when the cursor is in a text entry box and the insert key is pressed.

I can't see anything about it in the Firefox bug reporting system - should we report it there?

NO! Do NOT report the bug. Instead patiently wait and see if it fixes itself ...

I tried it only in Seamonkey, and it killed Seamonkey & FirePup that I had both open at the same time, strange Confused

Smile AJ, I only asked because of the suggestions it may be a GTK bug or something.
