Bug introduced in 13.3.0 or earlier and persisting through 13.3.1 or later

I have upgraded to version 13.3.0. I find that when I plot a data set using ListLinePlot or ListPlot Mathematica aborts the kernel or just disappears.

I have opened a new session and typed the following about 10 times and generally it will go wrong when I move the cursor into the plot. There is no particular condition I have identified. Sometimes it does not go wrong immediately but only after I start a new notebook and copy and run the same code into that notebook. I am wondering if anybody else can replicate this problem.

The initial code I type is


 (* Out[1]= "13.3.0 for Microsoft Windows (64-bit) (June 3, 2023)" *)

f = 3.456;
sr = 2000;
data = Table[{t, 5.0 Sin[2 \[Pi] f t]}, {t, 0, 5 - 1/sr, 1/sr}];

(* 10000 *)

At this stage there is no problem. When I start the following then I get the problem.


enter image description here

I clicked around in this plot just now and it dropped the kernel again. I reran the code and clicked again and again the kernel was dropped.

Sometimes a pink box appears in the plot and then disappears.

Does anyone else see this problem?

  • $\begingroup$ Have you tried reducing the amount of memory required for your plot by varying the parameter sr? Try reducing it to something like 1000 and see if the problem persists. Exceeding available RAM is a common reason for having the kernel quit on you. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Please verify whether ListLinePlot[data, PlotHighlighting -> None] fixes the issue. Then please report the issue to Wolfram. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @JasonB. Seems more robust but will continue to check. You may have found the issue. Thanks. I have already reported to Wolfram. $\endgroup$
