Synergy 1.8.4 Crashes when Windows locks/unlocks

Postby rajiv » Wed Oct 19, 2016 8:02 am

Every time my client Windows locks, my Synergy server crashes such that the mouse is barely responsive until I can manage to kill the server.

Every time my server Windows is unlocked, the Synergy server crashes (or has already crashed, maybe?).

This started happening after I upgraded to 1.8.4. It did not happen in 1.8.3. It is a productivity sink.

Same here. Tried uninstalling but IDK if I wiped the preferences/cache. When Synergy locks up the mouse is really jittery and Synergy has usually already relaunched(?).

Setup: Windows>Ubuntu>Ubuntu

It also seems to be keeping one of the Ubuntu machines from screensaver/auto-locking.

Same problem. Essentially have to reboot every time it happens or struggle to try and recover. Very serious problem.

Since it pops up the Debug / Close dialog I was able to get a backtrace in Visual Studio:

And also over here. Mouse and Keyboard stop responding and system is showing an enormous load (endless loop?). System is W7x64 running as server, W10x64 Client doesn't show this behaviour. Both systems are domain members if this is any difference. If you've got a networked PC you can use taskkill to shutdown synergys.exe and the system returns back into a usable state.

Code: Select all
synergys.exe, Code: 0xc0000005, Offset: 0x0000000001cdd6c0
synergys.exe, Code: 0xc0000374, Offset: 0x00000000000bf262
synergys.exe, Code: 0xc0000005, Offset: 0x0000000001cce2d0

I have the same problem after upgrading to 1.8.4.

My setup is:

Server: W7
Client: MacOS Sierra

It is recoverable, but it is a pain.

Has anyone tested 1.8.5 yet on a Windows server to see if this is fixed?
