This is an example of why putting git packages in the official repos is a bad idea.

FTR this bug was introduced pre-2.36.1 so even if I had picked the release commit we would be having this problem.

The additional commits are some crash fixes that I thought would be nice to have.

Also breaks keepassx2:

Downgrading to gdk-pixbuf2-2.34.0-2 resolves the issue

Looks like there are at least two separate issues at play here. The hexchat issue is likely related to the linked bug report and broken in 2.36.1. The xfdesktop issue mentioned in the linked forum thread is separate, and related to a commit since 2.36.1. Not sure about keepassx2.

this is a major bug, the severity should be raised it to high, because a lot of applications crash ( thunderbird, gimp ) if we click on the bar menu,

downgrading to gdk-pixbuf2-2.36.0+2+ga7c869a-3 solves the problem

Comment by Scott (firecat53) - Saturday, 17 December 2016, 23:42 GMT
Sorry, gdk-pixbuf2-2.36.0+2+ga7c869a-3 also fixes the keepassx2 crash...don't need to go all the way down to 2.34.0.

I think this bug should have been detected during the testing step, it's not normal to see this package version in extra

Here is a workaround for HexChat if anybody wants to backport it:
Comment by patrick (potomac) - Sunday, 18 December 2016, 05:01 GMT
it seems ok with the new version of gdk2-pixbuf2 : 2.36.1+27+g5dcc1b8da-1

forgoth to add this line : from terminal :
** (hexchat:6499): WARNING **: (pixmaps.c:104):load_pixmap: runtime check failed: (pixbuf != NULL)

@ringo32: what gtk theme do you use ?

in plasma 5 bugs can occur with gdk2-pixbuf2 with some gtk2 themes ( for example with Qtcurve for gtk2 ),

you can try to change the gtk2-theme in order to see if the bug is still here

No improvement with the new version using Adwaita under xfce4, still no Hexchat try/mode icons.
Comment by ringo de kroon (ringo32) - Monday, 19 December 2016, 16:24 GMT
