MythFrontend crashes when exiting MythVideo before metadata grabber script is finished

Reported by: andrew.barbaccia@… Owned by: robertm
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.22
Component: Plugin - MythVideo Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords: grabber, segfault
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

MythFrontend will crash if you do the following:

  1. Open MythVideo?
  2. Choose to download metadata
  3. Leave MythVideo? before metadata download is complete

Several things happen here:

When you choose to download metadata, a progress bar shows up (more like a wait timer because the bar just bounces back and fourth).

Then a dialoge will pop up asking you to select the correct title (if it cant differentiate).

You choose the correct title but no progress bar shows up to let you know the script is still running (if you check the terminal, you can see the output). After the script finishes, the album cover appears and you know the script is done.

The user can still exit mythvideo while the progress bar is showing which will also produce a segfault.

I believe mythvideo should block all actions while the script is running which will stop this behavior.
