[Bug 1526209] Re: [regression] Clients of nested Mir servers silently crash/exit instantly


I could not reproduce on xenial. Both mir-on-x and mesa worked for me.
Note that there is a known issue with the nested server not being able
to detect the platform (lp:1515558) so a '--vt' switch is needed on the
server for correct behaviour.

  This happens in Mir trunk lp:mir and lp:mir/0.18, but not in

    sudo bin/mir_demo_server_minimal -f /tmp/outside &
    sudo bin/mir_proving_server -f /tmp/inside --host-socket=/tmp/outside &
    sudo bin/mir_demo_client_egltriangle -m /tmp/inside

  And the client silently exits with return code 139.

  Valgrind or gdb show the problem though:
