Crash when Intuition asks to reset the Workbench Screen

I have the Clock tool startup in wbstartup. After startup, I open a newshell and type Locale to change the character set and press save.

If the "Intuition is attempting to reset Workbench comes up" I close the shell window and then the crash happens. This isn't 100% consistent because I tried it several times and the requester does not always come up. When it does come up and I close the shell first then it can crash. I will send crash logs.

Is that SYS:Utilities/Clock (the really old one) ?

Because it does not have an Iconify gadget, so it may be so old that it can't iconify cleanly. Intuition sends an "Iconify" command to each window on the screen, then an "UnIconify" command after the screen has been redrawn.

Yes -- this is the clock version -- it has no iconify gadget.

Clock 53.1 (01/12/09)

Yes, I can confirm your description.

I checked and there is already a bug report about the lack of Iconify gadget, but not for the crash. I have added the description of the crash and how to reproduce it.

BZ #767.
