Crash on resolution change

Reported by: Superlexx Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.14 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows


When changing guest resolution by resizing its window, the VirtualBox process sometimes crashes (access violation, apparently "use after free" issue). Minidump and log are attached. I also have a full dump (bigger than 1GiB, so will only upload when requested).

Reason might be same as for #8380

Still relevant with VBox 4.1.22 / 4.2.0?

vbox log after crash

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by adrian_nye

I have this problem on 4.2.4 with a Windows 7 host and Ubuntu 12 guest, in fact it happens more often than it did with the 4.1.x series.

I have attached the vbox log for the latest occurrence.

I have two external screens attached to my laptop which is normally in a dock and closed. One screen is horizontal and one vertical. When I boot ubuntu it does not come up using all of the real estate. I use a combination of Control G and Control L to make it detect the actual screen size and resize to fill it. Sometimes this crashes vbox, sometimes it works. If I manually resize a window using the "full screen" button on the top right, that always crashes vbox. Also, grabbing and dragging the border of the window to resize also always crashes vbox.

When I de-dock the laptop, it then has one screen which is a different size than either connected external screen. It usually does not crash when de-docking, but sometimes does when docking again.

We just fixed a bug which could lead to crashes if multi-monitor guests were resized. The fix will be part of the next maintenance release.

Could you check if this problem is fixed for you in VBox 4.2.8?

comment:5 Changed 3 years ago by frank

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

Please reopen if still relevant with VBox 4.2.10.

  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Resolution fixed deleted

This is still happening using windows 8 and VBox 4.2.14 on Mac/mountain-lion host.

Regression maybe?

Reproduction steps: In full screen windows 8 using Oracles host drivers, move from full screen to window mode using ctl F.

Cannot reproduce. Please attach a VBox.log file of such a VM session.

Same thing happening on Windows 8 host with Windows XP guest. Log attached. Open Suse guest on same host does not seem to have the same problem.
