I have uploaded a new gambas3 package for Mageia 2 to fix the gb.gtk component provided by the gambas3-gb-gtk sub package.
You can test it by running the gambas3 project (look at the last reference or the bug 7522, comment 4 ) to verify that it doesn't segfault when you try to create a new image with gimp using the clipboard data.
Note: create the gimp image while the gambas3 project is still running to be able to see the segmentation fault.
Updated gambas3-gb-gtk package fixes a bug with the clipboard:
when the user/gambas developer tries to copy an Image into the clipboard passing through a Picture object, the data he will put into the memory will be corrupted.
This update adds no new features.
Updated packages in core/updates_testing:
Steps to Reproduce:
Testing mga2 64
Thanks for the nice advisory and procedure Matteo
I think we're missing some rpm's from the list though, could you list all the rpms in the srpm for QA please.
I *think* this is correct, could you check please Matteo..
$ grep %package gambas3.spec | sed 's/%package /gambas3-/'
Testing complete mga2 64
Reproduced the bug, installed the update with 'urpmi -a gambas3' which should catch them all (55 of them). Confirmed that the image could then be pasted into Gimp without causing a segfault.

You're welcome, it was my duty :-)

It's correct, you listed all the sub packages built starting from the src.rpm.
I Tried following the advisery but I'm getting this error msg:
The window "Simple Image Viewer" is not responding. It belongs to the application clipboardimagetest (Process ID = 3546, hostname = localhost).
Do you wish to terminate the application process including all of its child windows?
Any unsaved data will be lost.
Copyied and pasted from the gamba3 message window. and when I try to paste the image into gimp gimp tells me there is nothing in the clipboard to paste
When that message did come out? I mean at which phase of the procedure.
Which DE are you running?
If you close the application before trying to paste the image, gimp will reply that way because the clipboard memory is corrupted.
Ok DM is kde, Just tried to recreate the error and could not. Also the image pastes into Gimp with no problems! It was a hot day so maybe the pc was getting a bit too warm, Its a the middle of the night now and a little cooler, who knows. I'm not going to be able to help with this much more for maybe two or more weeks. Sorry.
Thanks John, adding the whiteboard tag

John, if you read carefully bug 7522, comment 0 you will see that you cannot test this bug using KDE or Trinity.
You could use LXDE for example.
Validating. Advisory from comment 0 uploaded.
