Error description

  • Error Message: (<unknown>:9266): Gtk-CRITICAL **:
    IA__gtk_message_dialog_set_markup: assertion
    `GTK_IS_MESSAGE_DIALOG (message_dialog)' failed

    As of  IBM 7.0 SR6 FP1/IBM 8.0 GA and onwards for 7.0/8.0
    release, IBM Java informs the user when their Java maintenance
    level is more than 6 months old.
    Unlike Oracle, the IBM Java sdk doesn't attempt to verify
    whether the user's Java maintenance level has any Critical
    Vulnerability Exposure fixes pending.
    To stop the built in date expiration, enable the following
    property in deployment.properties file:-
    deployment.expiration.check.enabled=false
    

Local fix

  • The crash is not observed if we pass any JVM command line
    options during the launch of webstart application. For eg.
    javaws -silent test.jnlp
    javaws -verbose test.jnlp
    

Problem summary

  • The crash use to happen as there was a jump to wrong address
    from JDK's gtk_message_dialog_new function. The reason for the
    illegal jump was the wrong declaration of JDK's
    gtk_message_dialog_new function.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JDK has been updated with the correct declaration of
    gtk_message_dialog_new function.
    .
    This APAR will be fixed in the following Java Releases:
       7    SR9 FP20  (7.0.9.20)
       8    SR2       (8.0.2.0)
       7 R1 SR3 FP20  (7.1.3.20)
