wesnoth 1.7.7 crash in the multiplayer menu

Post by mich »

If from the main menu I choose multiplayer, and in the the following menu (the one with "join official server", "connect to server", etc...) I put the mouse on an option, then slowly move the mouse up or down over the others options I experience a crash (continue to move the mouse up or down for some time). This both on windows vista and debian.
This is what the terminal reports

Code: Select all

Checking video mode: 1300x722x32...
setting mode to 1300x722x32

I haven't been able to reproduce the problem, but I already added a fix for the crash.

Also next time please report the bug a bugs.wesnoth.org, where it's more likely to be found.

I haven't been able to reproduce the messages, but a code review revealed
the cause of the crash so I could fix that. Could you try to give more info about
how to reproduce the messages?

I have similar messages in the new lobby too (wesnoth 1.7.8), and there they are more frequent (so probably more easy to reproduce). the message are

Code: Select all

The problem happens when I mouse over the little icons

It seems a problem in displaying the tips at the bottom of the page (but I can see them). To reproduce, mouse over the little icons of different games, and after a while I can see the messages.
I have compiled the game myself on debian testing. If you need more information, tell me what I can do.

Thanks for the additional info, I'm able to get the messages with those icons as well.
Still not able to reproduce them reliably, but I think it's good enough to investigate further.

I found the cause of the problem it can happen in valid cases, so removed the error messages.
