Description David Binderman 2005-02-01 07:05:29 EST
Description of problem:

I just tried to compile package gtkhtml3-3.5.4-1 from 
Redhat Fedora development tree.

The compiler said

htmltextslave.c(184): remark #592: variable "gi" is used before its
value is set

The source code is

                HTMLTextSlaveGlyphItem *gi = (HTMLTextSlaveGlyphItem
*) gi;

                if (gi->type == HTML_TEXT_SLAVE_GLYPH_ITEM_CREATED) {

Bizzare code. gi gets initialised with it's own (undefined) value,
and then it gets used as a valid pointer in the if statement.

Suggest code re-work. Has this code ever been tested ?

Thanks for this report.

I agree that this code is bizarre, and will work on getting it fixed upstream.
Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2005-08-18 16:10:58 EDT
It's been fixed in upstream CVS:

Bug was fixed by gtkhtml-3.7.5, so fixed it's fixed in rawhide.
Bug exists from gtkhtml-3.5.3 to gtkhtml-3.6.2, so potentially affects FC4, but
does not affect FC3.
