This was originally reported by mikshaw in http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=114.0 but I think it got lost in the shuffle.

I recompiled appbrowser, unstripped, from the source and got the following backtrace:

Code: [Select]
(gdb) run
Starting program: /home/tc/work/bugs/appbrowser/appbrowser
/mnt/hda2/tce/optional

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0xb7d34b63 in strlen () from /lib/libc.so.6
(gdb) bt

#11 0x0804f425 in Fl::run ()
#12 0x0804cfc8 in main (argc=1, argv=0xbfc25144) at appbrowser.cxx:172

However, why it's crashing is beyond my expertise--line 67 is the following.

Code: [Select]
select_extn = brw_extn->text(brw_extn->value());

Thanks for the reminder... think this'll do the trick.  Submitted for next iteration.

If modifying the .cxx, insert a check into line 67
Code: [Select]
if (! brw_extn->value())
  return;
