Description Terrence Enger 2014-10-11 23:39:09 UTC
I stumbled across this while trying to bibisect bug 84904
"Distribution icons look distorted".  In the daily dbgutil version
2014-10-10, the program raises an assertion:

    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::bad_rational'
      what():  bad rational: zero denominator
    Application Error

    Fatal exception: Signal 6

In the version 2014-10-11, the program presents the message in a
msgbox and then exits.


(1) Download file tux-distribution.odg attached to bug 51876

(2) Open the file from the command line.  Program raises assertion or
    displays msgbox.

Working in the daily dbgutil bibisect repository, I see from `git bisect good`:

Comment 1 Terrence Enger 2014-10-11 23:48:31 UTC
Created attachment 107729 [details]
gdb on the core file left by exception

Obviously, I meant that version of 2014-10-10 throws an exception.
Comment 2 Julien Nabet 2014-10-12 08:48:10 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated yesterday, I could reproduce this.
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2014-10-12 08:50:26 UTC
I increase a bit the importance since it's a regression + prevent from opening a file.

David: any idea how to pinpoint this one? (I didn't succeed in retrieving a backtrace since after the popup, LO stops and doesn't segfault).
Comment 4 Terrence Enger 2014-10-12 18:11:07 UTC
I have just started a build.  I should be able to supply a backtrace
in about 24 hours.
Comment 5 Terrence Enger 2014-10-14 15:53:33 UTC
The problem is gone in daily dbgutil bibisect repo version 2014-10-14.
Setting bug status VERIFIED.

I think that the relevant commit is "boost::rational throws if 0 is
passed as denominator",
