[Bug 706918] Re: compiz crashed with SIGSEGV in RegexExp::evaluate()


This bug keeps on happening. Its been happening since 40 days. That is
when i upgraded from maverick to NATTY. It happens on kernels 2.6.36,
2.6.38, the generic ubuntu kernel too. I tested it with 5 different
kernels. The following message is found in /var/log/syslog

Apr 30 17:51:37 solidus-workstation kernel: [437609.857278]
compiz[19952]: segfault at 10 ip 00007fa564066335 sp 00007fff096e1350
error 4 in libregex.so[7fa564061000+8000]

Long ago b4 the upgrade there was no problems with the 2.6.36 kernel.
Therefore im sure its not a kernel problem. Moreover, it used to happen
a lot b4 the last 2  compiz updates. Now it happens only twice or 3
times when  i log in to the system nd then it takes a long time to
happen again. Also if i logout nd log in again, the same story repeats
where compiz crashes 2 or 3 times and then takes a very long time to
crash . The crash occurs when new windows open such as when u open
banshee or the sound preferences or any gtk window etc...
