How do I reproduce this?
This seems to come from a window that is being destroyed.

Does turning off opengl help?
Have you tried the python3 builds?

This looks similar to Latest Wireshark crashes on startup (Wireshark 1.12.3 Segmentation fault) and could well be a GTK bug. Wireshark fixed it by applying this build patch: https://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/dports/net/wireshark/files/patch-configure.pixmap-fix.diff?rev=133911

Replying to Antoine Martin:

How do I reproduce this?

To be fair, I really have no idea. The client just crashes very randomly - typically after being up for while. Definitely not at startup.

I have not figured out a pattern yet. I have been living with crashing xpra client for almost an year. Unfortunately, regular work gets in the way of my attempts to investigate the reason for xpra client crashes ;-)

I think I have been seeing crashes since at least version 2.2. I finally reported it hoping that the crash might give you some information about this or some other gnarly issue you might be working on.

Will try.

Have you tried the python3 builds?

Just started to do so.

Won't be surprised if it is.

Feel free to close the bug if you deem so.
