Description

I'm seeing fairly frequent and reproducible frontend crash / program abort with trunk head (r27060).

I've attached two backtraces generated with profile build and from the core files.

Below is frontend -v important,general,playback log from the time of the crash:

Revrting back to r27010 "fixes" the issue.

At least one of those crashes is teletext-related. I'll hand this to markk, but feel free to punt it elsewhere.

Resolution: Fixed
Status: acceptedclosed

(In [27114]) Lock the OSD when the teletext decoder is updating the teletext screen and fix an OSD locking typo.

r27011 removed the code that paused the player/decoder while the OSD is reinitialised (as it can cause lockups in conjunction with the letterbox detection code - and I thought it was safe to do so!). The teletext decoder however updates the teletext screen directly and hence it can crash hard (N.B. the other caption screens do not operate in the same way).

So lock the OSD while the update takes place (which will also reset the teletext viewer).

Closes #9166
