Bug#516325: compiz: Compiz crashes when Rotate Cube plugin shortcut is used in Expo plugin
> > Package: compiz
> > Version: 0.7.6-7
> > Severity: normal
> > When in the Expo plugin view, Compiz will crash if one uses a shortcut for
> > the Rotate Cube plugin to select a cube face (or workspace). To replicate
> > this bug:
> > 1. Activate the Rotate Cube and Expo plugins in CompizConfig Settings
> > Mananger.
> > 2. Set up a key binding for "Rotate to Face 1" in the Rotate Cube plugin
> > using CompizConfig Settings Mananger. I used Alt+F1. No key is defined by
> > default.
> > 3. Activate the Expo plugin (e.g., by moving the mouse to the top left or
> > whatever is set in the "Expo edge" setting).
> > 4. You should see a wall of work spaces.
> > 5. Now, instead of selecting a work space with the mouse, press the
> > Rotate-Cube shortcut key for "Rotate to Face 1".
> > 6. Compiz immediately quits and, for me, reverts to Metacity.
> Please send a backtrace of the crash (you probably want to catch it with
> gdb under ssh).
That was fast! I'm a programmer, but not an expert. I didn't quite
understand what you mean by "gdb under ssh". I've tried
GNU gdb 6.8-debian

This GDB was configured as "x86_64-linux-gnu"...
"/usr/bin/compiz": not in executable format: File format not recognized
but it fails, presumably because /usr/bin/compiz is a shell script. I'm
happy to try other commands.
