Description Zack Cerza 2004-07-07 15:29:04 EDT
Description of problem:
gnome-dictionary will hang when given a string longer than 225
characters. Clearly this is an extremely rare case, but it could still
be avoided.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnome-dictionary.
2. Put more than 225 characters in the "Word:" box.
3. Click "Look Up Word" .
Actual results:

Expected results:
gnome-dictionary attempts to look up the word.

Additional info:
while gnome-dictionary is hanging, this line is repeated in strace:
read(20, "", 4096)                      = 0
Comment 1 Christopher Aillon 2004-08-24 14:43:27 EDT
Looks like this got fixed upstream, and is now in rawhide.  Since this
is an edge case, I don't see the need to push to FC2.  Marking RAWHIDE.
