FE and Copy/Paste crash

Postby zzd10h » Sun Jan 11, 2015 6:45 pm

Hi,
Since I installed FE on my X1000, I am no more able to use Workbench Contextual Menu to Copy/Paste files or drawers.

Each time, Paste action doesn't paste the file and sometimes, "ContextMenu Paste Task" abends (crashlog below) and very rarely I have a Requester from "ContextMenu Paste Process" with "??x?" stranges characters.

I noticed this problem since the clean install and even when I boot from the CD, Copy/Paste doesn't work.

Of course, when I drag'n drop a file between 2 volumes, the file is well copied. Duplicate works too.

No problem with 4.1.6 that I keep in another partition.

Thank you by advance for your help

I do not see this behaviour on my X1000 FE system.
My HDD uses sfs/02 blocksize 512b.

i also can not reproduce this here on my x1000.
maybe you can check with snoopy if smth strange is going on?

this is for every file? from/to every volume?

Hi,
Yes, it's for all the files/drawers from/to all my partitions (and, as I said, even when I boot and use the DVD Workbench).

I tried with Snoopy to copy the file "Work:Bench9250.txt" to another sfs/02 partition named "Rien:"

In the Snoopy output, I don't find a reference to "Rien:" destination but again these strange characters. This time I doesn't show the requester.

Code: Select all
00242 : ContextMenus Paste Task : 0    = FindSegmentStackSize("<untracked>") [4uS]
00243 : ContextMenus Paste Task : o.k. = Lock("OS4_FE:Utilities/Commodities",SHARED) [53uS]
00244 : ContextMenus Paste Task : o.k. = Open("T:ContextMenus Clipboard1",OLD) = [0x18BEABD6] [41uS]
00245 : ContextMenus Paste Task : o.k. = Lock("Work:",SHARED) [22uS]
00246 : ContextMenus Paste Task : FAIL = Lock("Þ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­
00247 : ContextMenus Paste Task : o.k. = Lock("Work:",SHARED) [19uS]
00248 : ContextMenus Paste Task : FAIL = Lock("Þ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­ŸïÞ­
00249 : ContextMenus Paste Task : o.k. = DupLock("Work:") [8uS]
00250 : ContextMenus Paste Task : FAIL = DupLock("<ZERO>") [1uS]

Random thought, are your fonts all present, is your keymap set correctly?

I've seen this fault before. Years ago, it used to happen occasionally on all WB requesters. I raised a BZ for it and it was fixed (years ago). I have seen it again recently on my betasystems so perhaps it has crept back. I'll look up my old bug reports and see if I can find it.

BTW, the strange characters are in sets of four, and spell out "ABADCAFE" or "FEFECAFE" on the Sam 460. They are caused by a buffer over-run in the requester.

@ddni
yes all seems right. And it crashs too when booting the CD => Fonts in the CD should be OK, I presume.

@TonyW

Thank you very much to take a look at that.

And maybe a related problem again on my X1000.

1) Booting from the FE CD (or from my FE system)
2) RMB and select "New > New text file"
3) ContextMenu crashs !
4) If I ignore it, Notepad opens.

CrashLog from the boot from CD try :

Hoping that a fix still exists :D

I found my old bug report and I have an idea what could be causing it. I've reverted to an older version of one component, but I'll have to run it for a week at least to make sure, then another week with the new one back in.

Meanwhile, I've reopened the old bug report (BZ #6064).


Re the "New/New Text file..." crash: It would seem that Notepad is trying to open a file on the CD and failing, bu that should not make it crash.

Can you describe more clearly what you did? Start from where you clicked the LMB *before* you clicked the RMB and selected "New". From which menu?

Thank you !

If you want to test it quickly, I am able to reproduce the bug everytime.
I could test it to please you, of course ;)
