[Bug 981402] Re: compiz crashed with signal 5 in Glib::exception_handlers_invoke()


*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 964316 ***

Another Test! I ran this script on my system while actively using it
(doing other things/browsing)

#!/usr/bin/env bash
while true; do
  partprobe /dev/sda
  sleep 5

Perhaps someone else could test this themselves. My results are that my system becomes progressively less and less responsive, and more and more consumed with the partprobe process. In about an hour, the partprobe process goes from a mild annoyance, to completely unbearable.

Note: If I leave the script running (for example, on terminal F1), log
out of gnome-session, then log back in- all responsiveness is returned.

Though, after logging back in, continuing to leave the script running
will eventually take all system responsiveness down again.

When the responsiveness was down, I checked the cpu comsumption with
top. It reveals compiz comsuming giant amounts processor time.

Are there any moderators seeing my reports here? Does this bug appear to be a duplicate?? I'm forbidden from seeing the report that mine has been marked a "duplicate of".
