Thanks for finding all these problems!
I haven't yet analyzed this in further detail, but the crux of the
issue seems to be that we call do_ini_thread a second time without
having cleaned out the package database and the libsolv pool.
This is probably a symptom of a more general problem, which is that
we haven't thought carefully (or at least I haven't) about what
happens when we visit certain pages for a second time, after the
libsolv pool has been created.
The fact that this isn't considered at all at the moment makes me
wonder if it's working correctly in this situation currently. But,
yeah, I agree that packagedb state should be cleared in this case.
I tried with the attached, but it still segfaults at the same place.
This seems to be because all the packagedb prep (including
fixup_source_package_ids) is in OnInit() (which is only called once
per page, but lazily), rather than OnActivate(), so probably some
more restructuring is needed there :(
I guess we could move all that prep to OnActivate() but make sure it's
only run when we've gotten to the chooser page from the site page (and
not because the user pressed Back on the prereq page). What about
adding a 'prepped' data member to packagedb and using this to decide
whether to run the prep code?
An attempt at this to follow, but this ended up touching rather more
stuff than I wanted to, so I'm sure something else has broken :(
Well, at least the crash is gone.
