#2033 closed defect (wontfix)

Strange behavior with the localized (german) mirabelle build

Reported by: erikos Owned by: mchua pbrobinson sdz
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar on a Stick (SoaS) Version: Unspecified
Severity: Unspecified Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


Using the localized soas mirabelle build from [1], I am having all different kind of weird errors.

I boot up the stick and it comes up fine, keyboard and strings are localized. I can open activities, they are saved correctly etc. In Browse however is the input field nearly invisible (sugar labs starting page - google search and can be seen in the wiki as well).

A major behavior can be triggered using the Physics activity. When I open physics I can us it fairly well. After closing I can not open any activity anymore (fail to start, keeps on pulsing), icons are missing from palettes (xo-palette) and one can not shutdown Sugar anymore (using the palette).

After restarting Sugar the filesystem is corrupted and the stick does not boot anymore.

The symptoms described are above are not at all present in the general mirabelle build, just in the localized one. When changing the language and the keyboard to 'de' in a normal build things keep on working as expected.

Btw, I was able to trigger the second issue without using physics, after a while of playing with terminal, log (and I think Browse) I was able to hit that error, too.
