#454 closed defect (fixed)

mplayer gets broken pipe signal when closing with the X at the top right

Description

mplayer does not exit if you close it with the X button at the right top of the
window. The window does close, but the process is still in the process list (ps
aux shows him), and it seems, that it is not freeing resources.
if i try to watch a dvd then with xine, i have no sound.
after killall mplayer sound works in all other applications.

It doesn't for me, though it crashes instead. So I'm reassigning this to CVS and
updating the summary.

It doesn't crash, it just gets a broken pipe signal, and in general does the
best thing it can when it gets the window pulled out right under its legs.
The only other way to do it is try to catch the event, but that needs some of
those weird XAtoms I won't even touch...

OK, then. Someone will have to fix that later, I guess.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Forgot to say: should be fixed in CVS since... a week or so. Though I personally
still consider that window-manager misbehaviour, it shouldn't just destroy other
processes' windows, that's what xkill etc are there for.
