Turning off "Generating stack trace..."

When quitting root, I often get the message

*** Break *** segmentation violation
Generating stack trace…

and then root hangs. This is a BIG bummer if you’re running jobs
in batch. Is there a way to turn off the trace stack generation?
That should be much easier than actually solving the problem of
why it crashes (which I am less interested in as it happens at the
end of the job anyway).


You can remove the stack trace by changing “yes” to “no” in $ROOTSYS/etc/system.rootrc
in the line
Root.Stacktrace: yes

However, I encourage you to find the cause of teh crash (typycally symptomatic of a double delete somewhere!
