[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#434480: xfwm4: SEGV when adding a fancy keyboard shortcut set

Package: xfwm4
Version: 4.4.1-1
Severity: normal

(I know it is a slightly outdated version, but given the changelog...)


in xfce-setting-show, when clicking ``Window manager'', then
``Keyboard'' tab, and then adding ``\o/'', the setting manager just
crashes. Please also note that on restart, a ``\o'' item is then
present, without the trailing slash.

I know that xfce-setting-show is crashing, but it looks to me it is
actually due to /usr/lib/xfce4/mcs-plugins/xfwm4_plugin.so from the
xfwm4 package.

Just in case it is kinda useful (gdb's output doesn't look like...),
below are the last lines of an strace.
