1SimulIDE crashes on closing serial monitor Empty SimulIDE crashes on closing serial monitor on Thu Nov 19, 2020 2:32 pm

oddsignals


This occurs in all versions starting at 0.4.13-SR3 and upwards, including latest 0.5.15-RC2. Does not occur in 0.4.13-SR2 and older.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open SimulIDE
2. Drag AVR microcontroller atmega328 to schematic
3. Right-click component and click "Open Serial Monitor"
4. Close serial monitor window

Result: SimulIDE crashes.

Same occurs when opening a project saved while serial monitor window was open, if I close the serial monitor window SimulIDE crashes.

Tested on x64 Linux.

EDIT: Same issue as reported by user wallysalami in the thread "Simulide crashes on serial monitor", but different from issue topic starter TimFisch had (which should be fixed in 0.5.15-RC2).

Hmm.. i can't reproduce the issue.

Here in 0.4.13-SR5, but works the same in others.
I tried with simulation ON/OFF, closing while simulating, deleting atmega...
Check if i'm doing the steps properly:

Yes, those are the exact same steps I'm following, but here it crashes. Simulation running or not doesn't matter. I'll do some more digging and see if I can find out the cause of the crash.

I installed qt debug symbols and sources, made a debug build of 0.4.13-SR5 and got a core dump. It segfaults in the close window event handler. Backtrace is below in case it helps. qt version installed here is 5.14.2.

Code:

Using host libthread_db library "/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libthread_db.so.1".
Core was generated by `./simulide'.

Arcachofo, which QT version do you have installed? It seems like the crashing isTopLevel() check was added in January 2019, around v5.12.2:

I'm using 5.5.1

iI will have a look with a newer version and see if i can reproduce the issue.

I could not reproduce the issue with Qt 5.9.5.

But i'm almost sure where is the problem:
File: simulide_0.4.13-SR5/src/gui/terminalwidget/terminalwidget.cpp
Coment out line 177 and see if that solves the problem:

Code:
void TerminalWidget::closeEvent( QCloseEvent* event )
{
    m_serComp->slotClose();
    //QWidget::closeEvent( event );
}

oddsignals


I believe you might need qt 5.12.2 or newer for it to crash.

Commenting out the closeEvent line doesn't help unfortunately, it still crashes. However, if I comment out line 176 like this:

Code:

void TerminalWidget::closeEvent( QCloseEvent* event )
{
    //m_serComp->slotClose();
    QWidget::closeEvent( event );
}

it closes the terminal normally and no longer crashes. But I guess that might create a resource leak since removeComp() will no longer be called?

EDIT: I see the m_serComp->slotClose(); line was added in 0.4.13-SR3, which is the first version where the crash occurs here. I assume it fixes "Serial Monitor not properly deleted" listed in the changelog

Yes, before that, the widget was deleted but the component itself wasn't, so it was saved to circuit file.

I don't have Qt 5.12.2 currently, and i shoould install a newer version of my OS to get it.
it would be great If you could test this solution, if not i will install  what is needed.

Attached files with possible solution.
Just merge attached src folder with src folder in your sources (0.4.13-SR5).

The fix you attached works - closing the serial monitor now works correctly. The component is also still removed from the circuit file if you save the project after closing it.

However, a smaller bug now appears after the fix - if you close the main SimulIDE window while the serial monitor is open, the application crashes with a segfault instead of exiting cleanly:

That is good news!

No problem, this is not the complete solution, just to know what is causing the crash.
Also if you delete the atmega without closing Serial Monitor first, then Serial Monitor will not close.
But now that i know the origin of the crash, i can create a complete solution.

Thank you very much for your help!

Happy to help - thank you for looking into this and all your work on SimulIDE!
