"Music -> Files" causes crash, other submenus work - Vogateer - 2012-06-02 06:14
OSX Version: 10.5.8
Platform: MacBook 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Install Method: dmg
GIT Revision: Eden (11.0 GIT:20120321-14FEB09)
Description of Problem
The music files have already been scanned from the (User)/Music folder, and music can be selected and played from the XBMC library menus without issue. But when I try to go to "Music" then "Files" from the main menu (so I can try to add a new source), XBMC consistently crashes within 10 seconds of trying to navigate to this screen. This happens after a reboot, after using XBMC for a while, or after trying to get to the "Music -> Files" screen right after startup of computer and XBMC.
I'm using the Rapier skin, but I've also experienced the crash under another skin (Aeon, I think), so I haven't seen a reason to believe the skin is the issue.
If I need to include other helpful info, please let me know. I'm pretty comfortable with the command line, so I can open up a terminal and get around pretty easily if information from such command-line programs might prove useful.

Looks like a race in UPnP::StartClient() by the looks. Caused by 2 threads hitting it in close succession.
Mind creating a bug report over at trac.xbmc.org and include your logs there? cc elupus.

Sure I'll head over there and do that. Thank you, Jonathan.

Thanks - much appreciated. You can remove your upnp sources by editing userdata/sources.xml if that's any use before a fix is slotted in.
I'll try and sort out a fix so that it doesn't hit upnp looking for thumbs (which is an invalid operation to begin with) - it won't fix the root cause, but might stop the crashes.
