Crash when Mac switches between Light and Dark modes

Post by strangenoises » Fri Jan 03, 2020 5:51 pm

TextMaker crashes when the system switches between Light and Dark mode. Reliably, and regardless of whether the switch happens manually or automatically. It happens a few seconds after the switch.

Do you guys get the developer crash reports that I've been filling out that get submitted to Apple? If not, here's a couple (attached), observed on a brand-new just-set-up iMac. I had been seeing this for a while on a Macbook Air as well, but incorrectly ascribing it to a sleep/wake issue, possibly related to being docked using Thunderbolt. This time things are simpler; the machine was awake, I was using the app, and at sunset the desktop went dark, and a few seconds later, TextMaker crashed.

Oh great, now I can't reproduce it. I thought I had it reproducing reliably. Then I thought, I really ought to try the PlanMaker and Presentations apps too, and they didn't show it, and now apparently neither does TextMaker. I bet it shows up again though some time!

Anyway the two crashes I did experience, which did happen seconds after a light/dark switch, are attached. It's a segv so it definitely wants fixing. In a Zipfile as the forum doesn't let me upload bare .crash files.

and typically it happened again right after posting the above, and setting my general preference back to auto switch light/dark. I'm sure they're all the same but have another .crash file :D

Could you please also go to "? | About | Write system information" and send me the sminfo.txt it generates?
