cvs version bug [Feb. 21st, 2003|12:25 am]


Using debian sid, the cvs version occasionally crashes abruptly, leaving no core file. The only hint of a problem is that this error comes out on stderror a lot as the program is running:

(logjam:1080): GLib-CRITICAL **: file gstrfuncs.c: line 1733 (g_ascii_strcasecmp): assertion `s2 != NULL' failed

The crashes almost always occur on submitting my entry and may not be related to that error at all. Hope this is helpful!

I did receive it, but I've been a bit swamped. I think the proper solution is to filter that bad mood out when the file loads and when they're retrieved from the server, rather than checking the mood list when it's actually used, but you had the right idea.
The workaround you suggested is good, too.

Actually I think both are needed. Every function should check for valid input so things like this don't happen.
