Session hangs and dies

Reported by: mnbvc Owned by: mnbvc
Priority: major Milestone: 0.14
Component: server Version: 0.14.x
Keywords: Cc:

Description

When reconnecting to an already connected session, with clipboard support, the session hangs.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Start a session on the server
  • Connect to the session from the client, with clipboard support
  • Connect again to the same session from the same client.

Expected:
The first connection dies and the second one functions.

Actual:
The first connection dies, the second connection hangs. The client menu is disabled and the icon is changed to a clipboard icon with tooltip something along the lines of "One clipboard operation waiting". Client never actually start functioning, but sometimes all-black windows can be displayed.
On the server, running "xpra list" shows the session to be alive, but running "xpra list" a second time shows the session to be dead, and on the third run the session isn't listed anymore.
The processes still run however, and need to be killed manually.

A zip from the bug reporting tool is included.

I can reproduce this problem only with clipboard support enabled. If I use --no-clipboard with both sessions, there is no problem.

Milestone: 0.14
Owner: changed from Antoine Martin to mnbvc

When you connect to the same session again, the previous connection should get dropped before it even has a chance to try to do clipboard synchronization.
I am not seeing this problem here with a win xp client and fedora server.

Please include the server log and each client's output, as well as the command lines used.
(and maybe add -d clipboard to all the command lines used)

It would be worth attaching gdb to the xpra server process to try to get a backtrace of when it crashes.

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by mnbvc

ok, so I can not reproduce this with only xterm running in the xpra session, but with gnome-terminal I can reproduce it with just one session. It seems like the problem is not related to attaching twice, but rather to attaching with clipboard support to a session where a gnome-terminal is already running. Starting gnome-terminal in an already attached session works fine. Below is terminal output from server and client, and the server log. This session produces an all-black window on the client that has the correct title and icon, while the tray icon tooltip says "1 clipboard requests in progress". It is possible to disconnect from the client.

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by Antoine Martin

I see that you also have sound enabled, you may want to turn that off to see if it helps too (see #669 - I am actually working on this issue right now).

It isn't the first time that problems have been reported with gnome-terminal, it seems that it does some weird things with processes and clipboard and whatever.
I'm not saying we can't fix it, just that newer versions behave more oddly than before. Can you include the full version number you have installed?

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by mnbvc

~@ gnome-terminal --version
GNOME Terminal 3.6.2

Starting the client with --no-microphone and --no-speaker works. I can attach to a session that runs gnome-terminal, and use clipboard in the server->client direction, but client->server direction does not work. Tell me what logs you want from such a session, if any.

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by Antoine Martin

The fact that turning the sound off fixes things confirms that we are dealing with #669. And I have a fix for that pending!

Now the fact that clipboard only works in one direction is something else, could be:

  • another application or tool is trying to synchronize the clipboard (virtualbox, clipper, etc..)
  • application doing weird things (like claiming or requesting the clipboard contents too eagerly)

See: wiki/Clipboard

For debugging, the best would be to capture -d clipboard (both client and server) of around the time when the clipboard cut&paste does not work.

About one direction clipboard: Scratch that, I was merely confusing primary and secondary.

Looking forward to the sound fix!

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by mnbvc

And, for the record I found a pretty usable workaround in the meantime:

xpra start :100 --no-speaker --no-microphone --start-child=gnome-terminal
xpra start :101 --no-clipboard --pulseaudio

Connecting to both sessions then produces an experience where both clipboard and audio work just fine.

I'm not sure how clipboard could work if you have --no-clipboard specified on the server command line! It shouldn't, that would be a bug.

I think we can close this ticket as duplicate of #669?

FYI: I've just posted beta builds of 0.15.0 with the sound changes, you should now be able to use both clipboard and sound without problems. (at least without the problems that #669 is meant to address..)

It wouldn't. In the workaround example, :100 would be a session with clipboard but without sound. The :101 session would have no windows at all, it's sole purpose to stream the sound.


I think we can close this ticket as duplicate of #669?


Yes. If any problem persists, I'll open a new ticket for version 0.15.

comment:11 Changed 5 years ago by Antoine Martin

FYI: there are beta 0.15 builds available which should fix this problem.
The fix was committed yesterday.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
