Package: cinnamon
Version: 2.6.13-1
Severity: important


I have a very strange issue.
Every now and then (say at least 1 out of 10, rather more) when I do
a git mergetool, which then starts meld, the whole destkop freezes.
When it froze, CPU goes up 100% as long as cinnamon is displayed -
when I switch e.g. to the console, it stops eating up CPU.

This never happens when I run meld normally, e.g. via the terminal
or via git difftool... maybe the difference is that mergetool
does a 3-way-diff, which I don't do otherwise.
I also have no clue whether this is cinnamon related, or perhaps
at a lower level (GTK?).

Nothing helps (e.g. killing meld on the console nor Ctrl-Alt-Esc)
except Ctrl-Alt-Backspace (i.e. killing X).

There's nothing particular in the logs, at leat not in xorg's log.
There's no .xsession-errors.

glass.log contains only the following:

The freeze was at 04:07:51Z ... when I log in again, after restarting
X, the previously set background image is gone (i.e. not the file,
but it's just no longer selected, and I have to configure it again).

Also, when I switch back from the console to the frozen cinnamon,
the pidgin systray icon's backgroun (i.e. in the square) looks bogus,
as if the transparent areas would be wrongly drawn.

Not much, but perhaps you have an idea on what to do.
I'll report this upstream as well.

Actually I've closed that bug there last night... sorry that I forgot
about closing the corresponding Debian bug.

Me neither.

No, which is also the reason why I've closed it upstream :-)

Thus closing this issue here, too.
