Description caolanm 2009-06-18 17:13:41 UTC
As described in the more
uncommon chinese characters which are encoded as two 16bit values in our strings
are fairly commonly mistyped which causes loops in writers SwScanner, the root
cause seems to be the xdictionary stuff in i18npool.

Attached is a sample document (you may have to press space or tab at the start
of the line to trigger it). And a sample patch which at least makes the crash go
away, and is probably closer to being correct that the current stuff, but its
hard to tell if more is needed, or if the patch goes the wrong direction. But
there's definitely a problem in there anyway :-)

Ayay.. thanks! I don't see anything wrong with this patch at a first glance.
There just may be more places where iterateCodePoints() should be used.
Comment 4 caolanm 2009-06-19 10:12:48 UTC
Yeah what's changed here is probably good, just not sure if more should be
changed, especially around seeing if or if not such a char should be considered
in the gendict lookup table

Reassigning to spare time account.

In cws locales32:

revision 275072

Also adapted local iterateCodePoints() in breakiteratorImpl.cxx to cope with
surrogates at text end. Use OUString::iterateCodePoints() in

I actually have no idea if and how surrogates could be handled with the
gendict dictionary.

Reassigning to QA for verification.
Comment 8 stefan.baltzer 2009-09-11 15:31:08 UTC
