When using MySQL Control Center, it will terminate without warning.  The screen will simply disappear.  When I first start it, I see it is running:

500       2939     1  3 17:39 ?        00:00:00 /usr/local/mysqlcc/mysqlcc-0.9.2-linux-glibc23/mysqlcc

Reproducing the problem is easy.  However, reproduction steps are difficult.  At times, it is as simple as clicking the SQL Debug tab on the first window.  It never crashes when connecting to the database and always succeeds.  However, then clicking User Administration followed by double clicking one of the listed users almost always caused it to terminate.  After the window disappears, I verified that the process is in fact gone.

How to repeat:

Me too.  This is very weird, but it almost seems like it dies when I double-click too fast!  Basically, program in un-useable, as I almost never get past clicking on host, or perhaps db name before it dies.

I'm running RH9 with all the latest updates on an SMP box (2.4.20-9smp)

Also, I had it dying without ever even showing the initial window, but then I deleted ~/.mysqlcc/mysqlcc.cfg and re-created the server config (it was an old 0.9.1 config) and got it back to at least opening the application, but dying when I clicked on host, db, or table (almost never could get to table before it would die).

I'm getting the same thing having just upgraded to Redhat 9.  Is it possible that this has to do with the new Posix threads that Redhat 9 is using now?

The other problem I was getting with my Redhat upgrade was to do with errno. A number of packages (eg qmail) needed to be patched and recompiled because of a problem declaring errno.

However, these other binaries did give an error message relating to errno, and I'm seeing nothing of the kind with mysqlcc's crashes, so maybe it is not related.

Jorge, can you please look into this? Thanks!

Update: If compiled from source on RedHat 9, problem goes away. Did './configure' with no extra flags.

Hi guys,
I found the same awful problem running last version on red hat 9a, thw windows version of control center works great. The problem is not related to something specifically it looks like after a timeout of some seconds the program kill himself. Pls solve the problems otherwise i'm obliged to run it everytime from a windows box!
