Crashing connmand

REPRODUCIBILITY: no, I have no idea howto reproduce it, but it is happening twice a day on my phone
HARDWARE: Sony Xperia 10 II
REGRESSION: not sure


I have enabled coredumps on my device and today I noticed that some of the coredumps are created by connman daemon (connmand process).


connmand is crashing for some reason.

GDB stacktrace:

Connman version on my device is 1.32+git162. It is planned to switch to upstream version? 1.32 was released 5 years already and cleanup_inotify_cb don’t exists anymore in current codebase…

Should I dig deeper? Or it is known issue?

I think that cleanup_inotify_cb is sailfish specific and it never have been existed on upstream.
