Only if the add-on is enabled?

Can we see your system_info.txt file too?

Hi Sergey
Bit erratic at the moment.
First quit on add-on enabled, then it seemed to work with it being disabled, but might have changed the screen layout.
Meanwhile I believe the issue is related to screen layout rather than the add-on.
My default screen is tools open, outliner open, properties open, text editor open, 3d-view open. Add any primitive mesh to this, select texture paint from either menu: blender quits. Same with blender default layout of the environment. This happens with add-on disabled or enabled and does not happen in the UV editing layout when Blender behaves as expected. It does not happen in 3d-full view layout, though I am getting a warning: obj did not have UV-map etc.
Cautiously I am saying here: Quits in certain screen layouts with no UV-map present.

In that case we really need the a file with the specific setup that causes this (one step before the crash is recommended)

We also have a similar report where user reports that blender is closing on

  • load factory settings
  • go to texture paint mode
  • toggle wireframe (Z key)

Hi psy-fi,Sergey
You want me to send the .blend? If so where to, or should I just paste it into the box?

found it!

posting there as merged

psy_fi asked :
"Was your friend's OS 32 bit? We have a duplicate report actually."

Yes, he has the same OS as mine (xp), 32 bits too, only the card differ.

Turning off vbos in user preferences/ system resolves this issue.
I encountered two other vbo related issues simultaneously, now resolved:
Unexpected quit on object selection in object mode with armature present.
Mesh representation deterioration in clipped (AltB) region on zooming in object mode.

@Michael Fischer (mgfdes)

Can you be a bit more specific on those issues?

"Resolved" means they don't occur anymore when you turn VBOs off? (When you say "resolved" it's a little confusing for developers because it means that they might have been properly fixed by a commit and don't occur even with VBOs on).
"Deterioration" is a bit vague. Can you share a screenshot (or file) with the issue?

Probably the issue is driver dependent, but I am trying to get confirmation on that.

Hi psy-fi
Resolved in this context meant all these issues were entirely vbo related. I turn vbos off and thus turn of the problems! Whether this can/should be error handled I don't know. My own developments might crash on occasion, but they don't quit. An unexpected quit is always disconcerting, but I am with you on this it's probably driver related.

The screen shot I am including below is one of the less 'deteriorated' ones. I'd been getting all kinds of mysterious renditions using clipping in object mode and zooming in with vbos turned on. As in the case below the surface is gone but often bits of the mesh were missing as well and phantom lines appeared which seemed to have no rational relation to either mesh or surface.

Anyhow, all problems gone in one hit? I am a happy man.

On the case i reported

And that is merged with this one (and from mgfdes reply that the culprit was VBO, is not related then), it has nothing to do with VBO for me, as VBO on/off does not solve it, and if i use VBO in other modes (like sculpt mode), i have no crash when pressing Z (or switching manually to wireframe or bounding box), it's happening only in texture paint mode and only in Blender Render mode, everything else will not crash.

So certainly driver/card related (as i posted someone else with the same OS but a different card isn't having the crash), my "card" is using opengl 2.1 support.

Unfortunately the GPUs/OS are not supported anymore, see

Looks like Intel has fixed the issue in their newest drivers too so I guess we cannot really do anything here apart from suggesting an upgrade :/

I will archive this for reference.

Thanks, i had looked around a bit after my last post and noticed that intel had ceased support in 2012 for xp/g41, way before microsoft, so it's not much of a surprise if they have bugs or incomplete support for their opengl 2.1
At least i know it's the driver now, i was wondering if i had something else broken with my Blender settings.
I'll just have to avoid pressing accidentally Z next time i texture paint :)
