Ticket #1257 (closed defect: fixed)
VBoxSDL segfaults during startup, slow ssh connections
|Reported by:||chris||Owned by:|
Dear VirtualBox team. It seems, that somehow I'm attractive for segfaults. Anyway, here are the problem descriptions:
Host: openSUSE-10.3 + all Patches, Athlon64 in 32-bit mode, kernel-default-188.8.131.52, glibc-2.6.1
Guest: WindowsXP SP2 + all patches, German, guest-additions-1.5.6 installed
SGID-vboxusers: VBoxSDL is started with SGID-vboxusers wrapper
Problem-1: If I call VBoxSDL over an ssh-forwarded (-X and -Y tested) and rather slow TDSL-cable connection (2 MBit), it segfaults always:
my-laptop@home -> ssh -> computer@uni -> VBoxSDL ==> segfault
I admit, that this is much to slow to work with. But I was just curious. If I call VBoxSDL from the same computer over a fast ssh-connection, I do not get any segfaults:
my-laptop@uni -> ssh -> computer@uni -> VBoxSDL ==> NO-segfault
Core dumps and segfaults of three VBoxSDL calls:

Problem-2: I had once and only once a direct VBoxSDL core dump, e.g. started without ssh from a terminal window. Here is the core-dump (unfortunately without log):
Maybe the problems are connected.
Many thanks for your help and your good work.
