I can reproduce this also.

What seems to be happening is the stack of MythThemedMenu?'s are deleted and then referenced again later causing the crash.

Changing line 334 in programs/mythfrontend/main.cpp from

GetMythMainWindow()->JumpTo("Reload Theme");


GetMythMainWindow()->JumpTo("Reload Theme", false);

so the stack isn't deleted fixes the crash but the menu isn't redrawn properly if the theme was changed while in the settings.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [12373]) This fixes a problem where exiting the Appearance settings sometimes causes a segfault. It actually only affects the classic menu layout but it was only by luck the DVR and default layouts worked.

Basically this commit makes sure the AppearanceSettings? dialog is deleted and cleaned up before doing the JumpTo?("Reload Theme") so that when its detached from the MythMainWindow? it doesn't send an ExitToMainMenuEvent? which was causing all the problems.

It also only reloads the theme if the user completed the settings dialog by pressing "Finish".

Fixes #2860, #2580, #2738.
