FileZilla Client 3.1.2 segfaults shortly after it has connected to an FTP server.

I don’t think this is important, but the last lines I can read in the log window are:

200 Switching to Binary mode.

This part of my gdb session should be helpful for those who understand it …:

Are you using the ANSI or the Unicode build of wxWidgets? Has your copy of wxWidgets been patched in any way compared to the official sources available from ?

I am using x11-libs/wxGTK- from Gentoo. This is a Unicode build. The ebuild for this package is

The sources are changed by the following patches:

  • wxGTK-2.6.3-unicode-odbc.patch
  • wxGTK-2.8.8-collision.patch
  • wxGTK-2.8.6-wxrc_link_fix.patch
  • wxGTK-2.8.7-mmedia.patch

The patches can be found at

The patches mostly tackle the build system, and none of them looks like it could be the cause for a segfault while running the FileZilla Client. Might this be a wxWidgets bug?

Please attach the output of emerge --info

emerge --info? Nothing unusual in the output. Although I cannot reproduce the output from back at the time wxGTK was built.
Anything special to look for?

After a few emerge runs, I found out that the bug only appears if wxGTK is compiled with -ftree-loop-linear in CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS. So can we assume a bug in wxGTK or gcc(-4.3.1)? Or is this an overhasty conclusion?

Most likely GCC bug. It is a well-known fact that non-default optimizations can be dangerous. Don't use them.
