      Description



      Name: mf23781 Date: 09/12/97


      List and TextArea widgets are not being cleaned up
              properly, leading to error messages and core dumps.


      Platform: Solaris & ports thereof (in this case, AIX)

      Version: 1.1.2 - and I believe it is still present in 1.1.4

      Abstract: List awt_delWidget should be called when List and TextArea
                  widgets are disposed.


      The symptom (seen on AIX only so far) is that an AWT applications gets
      itself into a state where if you move the mouse over a certain window
      or widget, you get repeated 'method postEvent ... not found' messages,
      followed ultimately by a SIGSEGV and core dump.


      The exact text is:


      (On the "AWT-Motif" thread:)

      java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: : method postEvent(Ljava/awt/AWTEvent;)V not found
              at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java)
      java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: : method postEvent(Ljava/awt/AWTEvent;)V not found
              at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java)
      SIGSEGV received. Processing terminated
      (...full thread dump...)


      The problem is that List objects are creating two X widgets,
      and then storing them into a sort of widget registry (awt_addWidget
      and awt_delWidget) used to map incoming X events back to the
      correct java object. When the List object is disposed, only ONE
      of the two widgets is removed from the widget registry, so that when
      another object is later created with the same X widget address, it
      incorrectly mapped incoming events to a long dead-and-gone
      java object.

      The same problem exists for TextArea objects.
