MoviePlugin tests crash

Reported by Christopher Stawarz | June 1st, 2010 @ 03:25 PM | in 0.4.5 (closed)

Since the display blackout bug was fixed, the following MoviePlugin tests have been crashing:

  • MovieTests/MovieTestToSlow.xml
  • MovieTests/MovieTestWithStopAndRewind.xml

It looks like the crash is due to a timing problem, with the plugin scheduling a call to StimulusDisplay::updateDisplay (via the always-a-bad-idea StimulusDisplay::asynchronousUpdateDisplay) that gets executed after OpenGLContextManager::releaseDisplays.

Since both the base class for dynamic stimuli and OpenGLContextManager are being significantly reworked for 0.4.5, there's probably no reason to bother fixing the current code. However, if this bug starts causing problems for users pre-0.4.5, then it may be worth fixing in a patch release.
