Description Shy Shalom 2006-06-14 14:33:26 UTC
using QT 4.1.2, running the following piece of code causes X to crash:

#include <QApplication>
#include <QGLWidget>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
	QApplication app(argc, argv);
	QWidget window;

	QGLWidget *gl1 = new QGLWidget(&window);

	QGLWidget *gl2 = new QGLWidget((QWidget*)NULL);


	return 0;

X crashes on the last makeCurrent() call.
Constructing the second QGLWidget with &window instead of NULL prevents the crash.
running on:
QT 4.1.2, using a slightly modified code that compiles with QT 3.3.5 doesn't
seem to crash.
Xorg 7.0.0
Fedora Core 5 (2.6.16-1.2111_FC5)
on VMware

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.  Is this still an issue with recent 
servers?  If so, can you please attach a backtrace?
