I don't know exactly how to reproduce this bug, but my quasselcore crashed when a user tried to create a network. Here's the log (I didn't have debug messages enabled at the time):

After the crash, the assignment between identities and networks was messed up in my account (not the one that presumably caused the crash). I had two identities, with one only in use by one network, and that assignment "shifted" after the crash. It wasn't critical in my case, but this could be quite annoying or embarassing.

Also, the Version field in this bug tracker doesn't allow me to select my version of quassel, so that field contains garbage.


#1 Updated by YtvwlD almost 8 years ago

I might have encoutered the same issue. After adding a network my Core crashed immediately and crashes frequently and mostly won't come up.

I'm currently transferring my database to Postgres - perhaps that'll help.

#2 Updated by wrtlprnft almost 8 years ago

I should have mentioned that so far, I've exclusively used sqlite (version 3.12.0) with quassel.

#3 Updated by Robsdedude over 7 years ago

I've encountered the same issue as well. Core couldn't recover. All client side tries to connect resulted in a 'connection refused'. Nor further log messages after that crash. Restarting the core fixed it. Running version v0.12.4 (dist-90183ee) on Debian Jessie.
